Experience the Old West – Old Tucson opens Friday! Expanding beyond the movie sets and memorabilia of its rich Western film history, Old Tucson is now the premier location in the Southwest to experience what life in the Old West was really like. Just a stroll down the street is an adventure as you learn about the perils of a cross-country trip by stagecoach or the demands of life as a sheriff in the Old West. Turning the corner, you might find yourself learning the ways of Native peoples in the Native Village.

Kick up your heels for a rip-roaring good time! Enjoy world-famous high-flying stunt shows and high-kicking saloon girls in musical revues and fascinating historic tours. Visit unique shops featuring Old West attire, toys that take you back in time, old-fashioned candies, homemade fudge, and keepsakes like an Old West family portrait from the Photo Emporium. Kick back and enjoy authentic Southwest BBQ at Big Jake’s restaurant, fresh hand-tossed pizza at the Pony Express, and ice cold beer, margaritas and more in the Grand Palace Saloon. Treat yourself to a trail ride on horseback or stagecoach ride about town with Bell Livestock. Indulge your inner-child on the vintage carousel, Old West train ride, and antique cars that put kids in the driver’s seat!
