Jerome, AZ

The white-knuckle drive to Jerome, 50 minutes northeast of Prescott, won’t quickly be forgotten. It ascends to above 7,000 feet, then descends to the old mining town, reenergized with galleries, historic inns, and wine-tasting rooms. At 15° to 20° cooler than Phoenix, Jerome’s a fine place to beat the heat.

Stay: Main Street’s 1898 Connor Hotel has a dozen rooms, some with gas-fired woodstoves and windows framing red-rock mountains. From $95; connorhotel.com
