    Surrounding Areas
    Yuma just misses the top 10 largest cities in Arizona by one; it's the 11th most populated city in the state. This area of southwestern Arizona does not have much going on besides the proving ground and nearby wildlife refuges. The few towns that are close by offer off-post housing to the proving ground within a 30-60 minute drive. These are Fortuna Foothills, Somerton, and San Luis. Though Yuma is next to the California border, the closest city on that side of the state is over an hour's drive. The major city of Phoenix, Arizona, is a 3 hour drive northeast of Yuma.
