In the early 1950s, Tucson was a sleepy desert community of approximately 45,000 people. Around this time, a conglomeration of buildings developed into a western-themed commercial complex known as Trail Dust Town. Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse quickly gained popularity and became the anchor of this complex. Today, Pinnacle Peak and Trail Dust Town are rich with their own history, and people come from all over the world to experience the old west at these centerpieces of Tucson. Don't miss a wild west stunt show by the Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros! Showing Wednesday through Sunday at 7 and 8 PM, the shows are full of lots of high-falls, low-falls, gunfights, fistfights, explosions, and family friendly slapstick comedy! Take a ride on the CP Huntington Railroad! The miniature train is fun for all ages, and its path reveals some of Trail Dust Town's hidden gems. Enjoy the carousel and Ferris wheel at Polly Anna Park! This new park is a beautiful area perfect for an evening of rides, popcorn, and taking in the blissful Tucson weather. Polly Anna Park is also available for birthday parties! Home to many shops, Trail Dust Town is a perfect destination for gifts and souvenirs. Trail Dust Town is also home to the elegant Savoy Opera House- a beautiful venue with Victorian charm. The Savoy is ideal for weddings, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras, and more. The Museum Of The Horse Soldier features an impressive collection of original United States Cavalry artifacts. Uniforms, weapons, and equipment dating from the Civil War through the end of the mounted cavalry in 1942 are on display. Also, don't miss the Heirloom Farmer's Market at Trail Dust Town on Friday mornings from 8 to noon in the spring and summer, and 9 to 1 in the fall and winter!

We happened on this location by chance and didn't have much time. I was surprised that it was not open during the morning. You could walk around and enjoy looking, but the attractions were not open early.

Wonderful vintage western town - right here, no need to drive a long ways to Old Tucson or Tombstone - both of which I love. Traildust Town is fantastic. There are two restaurants - one is a steak place where they cut off your tie if you wear one so kids love it if Dad wears a tie. Food is... More

This is located just East of the center of Tucson on Tanque Verde Road. It has a minature railroad that runs through the property. There are several restaurants in this complex. If you go to Pinnacle Peak for steaks, don't wear a tie, because they will cut if off and hang from ceiling. Dakota is excellent for lunch or dinner... More

Many years ago we came to Trail Dust Town and really enjoyed the stunt-show there. A few weeks ago when we were back in Tucson I took my kids and was disappointed to find out that they only do the stunt show on weekends now. We still decided to eat dinner at the steak-house (which was only "okay" in terms... More

I was pleasantly surprised with Trail Dust Town. It's a cool little pretend western town that is really well done. Cute old fashioned buildings around a courtyard. Neat little shops and fun thematic entertainment. The kids and out-of-town guests will love it. Wander around the little town .. and then go have dinner at Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse.

My son husband and I went on our annual anniversary trip and happened upon the wonderful little place!

It's tradition in the wild west where boots and hats are allowed. No ties... so if you want to play a fun joke on someone wear a tie and watch the servers come out and cut it off in front of everyone and hang it from the ceiling. Great BBQ and Steaks. Take the train ride and stop for a... More

Just stopped by for a drink and decided to see the Stunt Show. It was exceptional and the actors did a great job with their antics, fight scenes, and overall performance. A nice stop, but not much else happening in the nice little area referred to as Trail Dust Town. We will return to try the restaurant, but would love... More
