Get ready for gunslingers, horses, and badge-wearing sheriffs. Arizona's second largest city (with its nearby ghost towns) is number one when it comes to shoot-'em-up Wild West fun.
Tour the studios where old westerns were filmed or the caves that hid real-life bad guys from the law. And don't miss a sidetrip to Tombstone, the old mining town where Doc Holliday and his cronies wreaked havoc.
Had enough history for a day? Head to the nearby Sonoran desert, where you'll see some really big cacti that have come to symbolize Tucson and the Wild West.
