Gunfight in Tombstone,
copyright Gill Kenny
Make your first stop the Old Tucson Studios: think Wild West-meets-Disneyland. But this is a must for fans of old westerns.
The 365-acre site, done up like an 1880s frontier town, is part real-life movie set, part amusement park. The movies Tombstone and The Three Amigos, as well as the TV shows Young Riders and Little House on the Prairie, were all shot here. And the studios still make movies today (you might even see one in progress).
The biggest attractions for kids include stunt demos, staged gunfights (at High Noon, of course), costumed characters roaming the streets, live song and dance shows, and rides.
