The Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area is a primitive trade route that connected the states of California and Arizona across the Colorado river. It was used by immigrants and foreigners as a crossing point in the 18th and 19th centuries. The historic area also includes a historic park, a prison, a fort and other features of the olden days. The historic park area, situated by the river, makes for an ideal location for weddings too as the heritage area still retains its natural charm.

Located in the Sonoran Desert which is considered to be one of the hottest places in the U.S., is a road trip destination that is known as the "Center of the World". Felicity was founded in 1986 after a fictional town in a children's book. The author of the book, Jacques-Andre Istel arrayed his vision with some interesting attractions that boost his claim. In the arid landscape you will find the official Center of the World, a dot inside the pink pyramid which was erected at the spot of the world's 'heart'. Visitor's are encouraged to toe The Spot as it is called by town officials and are given a signed certificate marking your time here. After the ceremonial center, next in line is the Granite Museum. Discover the world's history etched in these granite walls. A 25 feet (7.62 meters) curved staircase from the Eiffel Tower and a sculpture of Michelangelo's Arm of God acting as a sundial are some of the other fascinating sites in this place. If you happen to be on the road towards the California Desert during Thanksgiving to Easter, then a visit to this quirky town will definitely add some fun in your journey.
