From the Wild West-themed amusement parks and museums to country clubs and golf courses, there are plenty of interesting places to see and things to do in Tucson. A popular recreation area for both locals and visitors, Scenic Sabino Canyon provides a place to hike, picnic, and spot wildlife. Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum focuses on the presentation of the diverse plant and animal life of "the lushest desert on earth." To take a step back in time and relive the Old West, visit Bird Cage Theatre--the original 1880s saloon, gambling parlor, and brothel. Trail Dust Town and Old Tucson offer a far more family-oriented experience with a number of stunt shows.
