Love in Jerome, Arizona

Jerome, ArizonaI just finished another whirlwind three-day tour of the southwest, including the charming mountain town of Jerome, Arizona. I fell for this charming gate that is soldered shut — an innocent-looking design denoting love that bars about eight “no trespassing” signs on a pink house that is now decrepit. Many more posts to come, but for now, I have a big party to prepย for!ย One of my favorite parts about living in Las Vegas is how much there is to do outside of town. Just get in your car and drive: You’ll be rewarded with hours and hours of wide open spaces, gorgeous views and plenty of quirky towns to spend your free time. And then you make it home just in time for whatever A-list party is going on that night.

See you there?

  1. I wish.

  2. Hope you have a fantastic time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love that funky gate. An A-list party DOES sound fun, but I’m feeling cozy and very happy to stay at home in my big ol’ armchair under a blanket watching reruns of funny things. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Seems like something that would break open if ‘true love’ were present or something cliched like that lol.

  4. Krista, The party was fun – but tonight will be more of an armchair and reruns evening for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Margyle – someone had high hopes for that house! It was pink with that lovely gate. But now it’s covered in No Trespassing signs lol. Maybe there are ghosts?!

  5. I love this pic!! And Jerome!!!!

  6. How wonderful of you to remind us to take a moment in the “smaller” places which often turn out to be grand.

  7. I can’t wait to do the full post on Jerome — it was the most charming little town!

  8. You have the most glam life lady!!!

  9. Ooh, I like it all rusted like that. I don’t think it would have the same charm polished up and shiny.

  10. Oh, this makes me miss my home state Arizona so much…Regarding Jerome:

    I actually have two very close friends that are happily in love, and absolutely adore Jerome. They actually went to Jerome on their very first date..And celebrated Valentine’s day there!

    I need to take my babe out there! Great post!!

  11. Oh my gosh I love that story!!

  12. That’s not so much a house as a house of ill repute. It’s The Cuban Queen, the most upscale bordello in Jerome, when it was open for business. The fence was put around it about a month ago because the building is so unstable.

    I’m glad you like the new gate and the town.

    Have Fun,

  13. Thank you so much for writing in, Jeff! I can’t believe I can pop up a photo and catch the eye of someone who can tell me its history. We just happen to have parked nearby, and it caught our eye on the way out. Thank you!!
