The small town of Cottonwood, Arizona is located in the basin of the Verde Valley. The town’s meticulously restored historical buildings along the main street host unique shopping and restaurants.
If you are interested in a wine tasting adventure, avoid the drive and take a walk down Main Street. There are five winery tasting rooms along the street, each featuring wines made from local Verde Valley vineyards. Whether you’re a master sommelier or an occasional wine drinker, Main Street in Old Town is the perfect place to sample some local wine flavor.
Shopping in Old Town is almost like a fun treasure hunt. There are nine antique shops in the area, six art galleries, and a few unique Arizona gift shops. I would suggest that you definitely visit Art Glitter on your shopping trip. The shop has the largest selection of glitter on the planet, and even if you don’t need any glitter, it’s a fun place to stop in and see all the unique arts and crafts supplies.
Cottonwood serves as a great home base for exploring the surrounding area. Close to Jerome, Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, and many wineries, a trip to the Verde Valley is not to be missed.
