Day 1 Tombstone-Tucson(70 miles)

Known as the "Town to Tough to Die", Tombstone was home to the true men and women of the West. Outlaws, businessmen, miners, and cattlemen flocked to the area in the late 1870's for their chance to strike it rich. With such a colorful group of individuals in close quarters its no wonder this town was a powder keg waiting to explode. The most famous lawman of Tombstone, and the entire West, was Wyatt Earp. Wyatt and his brothers originally came to Tombstone as entrepreneurs; however, with the increasing unrest they needed to protect their investment in the mining industry and became lawmen. During the tour, guests will be able to stand on the very ground Wyatt stood during the shoot out at the OK Corral!

While in Tombstone, guests have a chance to visit both sides of this "colorful" town. The original gathering spots for outlaws and gunmen who strolled into town were Big Nose Kate's Saloon and the Bird Cage Theatre. The Bird Cage Theatre, which had the reputation as "the wickedest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast", was a saloon, gambling parlor, and theatre show that provided entertainment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 8 years to anyone brave enough to enter. Included in your tour will be entrance to the museum at the Tombstone Courthouse, which pays homage to the brave souls who did their best to keep the peace in this rough and tumble town. True to the reputation of the Wild West, gunfights and stand-offs were a weekly occurrence. For those souls unfortunate enough to be on the losing end of those gun battles, they were buried at the infamous Boot Hill Cemetery. The cemetery aptly got its name from those who died with their boots on and were buried as such.

As we return to Phoenix, we visit the Mission San Xavier del Bac, (also known as the White Dove of The Desert) one of the Southwest's best preserved. Founded in 1692, the San Xavier Mission is still in operation and allows guests to marvel at the ornate craftsmanship showcasing both Spanish and Native influences. Original frescoes and statuary are still on display within the mission for guests to admire as well.

Founded in 1879, Tombstone is a historic town and national historic landmark district. Visitors enjoy reenactments of gun duels, and performances and festivals that celebrate the wild west. Important attractions include the O.K. Corral frontage, Boothill Graveyard, Schiefflin's Mine, Big Nose Kate's Saloon, and Bird Cage Theatre.

Tucson has grown into a modern metropolis without entirely sacrificing its historic quarters. Equal parts college town and retirement community, it's one of the more attractive big cities of the Southwest.

  • Always Visit
    The Mission San Xavier del Bac is a historic, Catholic mission founded in 1692 by Father Eusebio Kino. Still actively run by Franciscans, visitors can admire the beautiful architecture and paintings while attending mass.
