Nestled in the heart of the Verde Valley, Clarkdale is about a half-hour drive from Sedona, 10 minutes from Jerome and is adjacent to the Tuzigoot National Monument – featuring an 800-year-old Singaua Indian Pueblo and 42 acres of breathtaking trails. The historic town is built on two mesas overlooking the Verde River, while newer sections climb up the Black Hills and toward nearby Cottonwood.

Home to the Verde Canyon Railroad which was laid out in 1914, Clarkdale contains multiple sites listed on the National register of Historic Places, including the original "company town" site, mining and smelter sites, the one-lane bridge on Broadway and the Clark Memorial Courthouse. In addition, Clarkdale houses a vibrant downtown featuring restaurants, bars, an art gallery and a beautiful park, complete with a nostalgic bandstand where summer evening concerts are held.
