Trip Planner:   USA  /  Arizona  /  Tucson  /  Old Tucson
Experience life in the Old West at Old Tucson by strolling down the streets fit for a town from 1853 to 1912. Films like "El Dorado" were shot here, as well as several episodes of the TV show "Little House on the Prairie." Living history demonstrations and saloon dancers bring the town to life, or for more of the movie aspect, take in a stunt show. Tour the studios to get a better picture of specific aspects of life in the Old West, like the demands on the town sheriff, or the danger of rail travel. Don't miss your chance to dress up in Western attire and have your photo taken. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Tucson fast, fun, and easy.

  • If you like western movies you'll enjoy this place. Many buildings were lost in the fire but there's still lots to keep you busy for the day. You can do the guided group tour at no extra cost or visit by yourself, map provided with entrance fee. Fun performances all day long by costumed staff in different buildings. Narrated $4 stagecoach rides available. Many gift shops, good restaurant, bars and coffee shops. Clean restrooms. Large parking area suitable for RV. We had planned to be there for 2 hours and stayed for 4 + hours.
  • I love this place. The shows are entertaining, great for families, and there's one every half hour or so throughout the day. My kids are ages 4-12 and there was something for every one of them. We stayed the entire day. The scenery is beautiful. The food there is good too, and reasonably priced unlike most theme park food. We fed our party of 3 adults and 4 children at the BBQ for right around $50.
  • It just isn't the same anymore. Locals don't gather here often and I think the ticket price is the culprit along with the downturn of the park after it was taken over by the county. It is scenic, provides some great photo ops, and has some fun things for kiddos like the train and carousel. The horseback rides have a good reputation and they seem to have a well cared for herd. A good spot for tourists, but locals will find somewhere else to hang out.
  • The shows we're outstanding. We rode the little train . You can pan for gold there is a lot of things for kids to do that keep them busy . Don't forget your camera . But if you forget" no worries" they have you covered. There's a shop where you can dress up in different themes and you will look like you we're there ," it really is fun"!!! . Depending on the package you purchase . YoU will get a CD to take home with you so you can print as many pictures as you like . "Note" Make sure you go straight there and make appointment for your pictures if you want to get them it is very busy and they do by appointment only . We went as a company party and the food they served was really good . Also I'm handicap and it is handicap accessible. I rode my electric chair the whole time and had no problems getting where I need to go. Thanks ~Robin~
  • Old Tucson is a gem of a place to visit. We enjoyed ourselves so much here that we got a yearly pass the first time we visited. We've taken all of our visiting guests there. Every single one enjoyed Old Tucson. Even as a "studio" you can't help but feel like the place represents the "old west." I can't wait to go back again!
