I went up the mountain and experienced the very interesting town of Jerome, Az. I ate at the Red Rooster Cafe and it was the best lunch I have ever had. The meatloaf sandwich was awesome and big enough to split with my friend. They had some unique beers and a limited but exciting wine list. I really enjoyed the experience and I will visit Jerome again soon. There are several restaurants but the Red Rooster has a very interesting menu with items I have never seen anywhere else.
The whole town is amazing. Each street is higher than the one before it and all the houses seemed to be perched precariously on the mountain. There is a great historical museum and so much to do and see that I would recommend an overnight stay at the Grand Hotel, The Ghost Town Inn, or one of the intimate bed-and-breakfasts in town. The shopping is amazing, with lots of art galleries and many unique, one of a kind shops.
