Just a touch of the old west in food, fights, dancing girls, and a house of mirrors. Fun for those from 8 to 80!

Certainly, Old Tucson is one of those places where "it is what you make of it". For serious fans of old Western movies, it is perhaps a homecoming of sorts. Clearly, it is not what it used to be - before the fire. I can...More

Great fun to see where so many western movies were filmed. There is scheduled entertainment throughout the day...Hollywood stuntmen, Country singers, stagecoach rides, train and panning for gold...just to name a few!

I’m so sorry, I’ve been off my phone. We just drive there and went where we wanted and also had a place to park without a fee. The only costs were to get in the shows, Birdhouse, Courthouse, and etc. We had a great time.
