Just fifteen minutes from Tucson at the base of the Tucson Mountains is a preserved slice of Americana, Old Tucson. Passing through the gates of a western frontier town, visitors from around the globe are transported back to a time when fearless men with six shooters ruled the Old West and the setting for the more than 300 movies and television productions filmed at the location since 1939.
Expanding beyond the movie sets and memorabilia of this rich film history, Old Tucson is now the premier attraction in the Southwest to experience what life in Old West was really like. Just a stroll down the street is an adventure as you lean the perils of a cross-country trip by stagecoach or the demands of life as the sheriff of a Wild West town. Turning the corner, you might find yourself learning the ways of Native peoples in the Native Village.
