We are planning a January trip to get into the warm. Sacramento to Yuma, to Tombstone, then to the missle site. Any other attractions in the warm part of Arizona?

Hello Neighbor!
There are many things to see and do in AZ.

You may want to consider getting a BLM long term pass if you can handle dry-camping. It will allow you to many areas for unlimited dry camping in certain areas...It allows you to camp on BLM properties during a certain period of months.
Some things in Arizona to explore are:
  • KOFA
    V-Bar-V Heritage Site
    Tuzigoot National Monument
    Chapel of the Holy Cross
    Montezuma's Castle Visitor's Center
    Historic town of Jerome
    Antelope Valley
    Canyon de Chelly

This is a list of only a very few...you did not mention if you were looking for touristy things or off the path things - so I have given you a variety.

We went to Sedona this year and there ere some things we saw and did- BUT I personally prefer the beauty and nature so my choice will always be BRYCE CANYON.

Good luck to you- I hope you have a safe and enjoyable journey!

If you are interested in aircraft The Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson is a must see. The separate "Boneyard" tour is fantastic but now requires "Reservations must be made 10 business days in advance of the desired tour date, and can be made up to 90 days in advance."

Just a heads up that Tombstone in January will probably be cold. Bring a coat. While there plan to take the Bisbee Mine Tour. It's great! Also in the area is Kartchner Caverns State Park. The cave tour is terrific and it's a very nice campground with electric and a dump station. You could tour all three from Kartchner. Have a good trip!
