#Travel Vlog: Mining Town in Jerome, Arizona Became a Ghost Town

I hope you are feeling healthy and safe at home. I decided to edit some more footage from the Arizona road trip I took in November 2019. This travel vlog shows our visit to a mining town in Jerome, Arizona.

According to historical facts, Jerome was built on top of what was the largest copper mine in Arizona. It produced three million pounds of copper per month, with the mines eventually closing in 1953. Creative artists came to Jerome after it was left a ghost town and transformed it into a successful historical attraction, including boutiques and shops. Now many people visit this unique town on their road trip through Arizona.

Have you been yet? If so, share your experience in the comment section below. If not, I recommend putting it on your bucket list of places to visit.

You may want to try the popular Bobby D's BBQ and Grill while you're there. They have salads for the vegan folks like me too.
