For Western-film buffs, a trip to the Old Tucson Studio is a definite must-see. There you can see settings and studios from famous Westerns featuring Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman, and John Wayne and experience recreated pre-prohibition saloons, can-can dancers, and themed restaurants. If youre into magic shows, a trip to the Carnival of Illusion is something not to be missed. Known as the best show in Tucson, the Carnival is a Victorian inspired magic show and with two main characters; seating is sparse (max 35 people), so make sure to reserve seats in advance.
Sampling the local cuisine of a new city is often one of the culinary highlights of any trip. It is no different in Tucson where regional Tex-mex dishes include fajitas, beans, and chillies. Tex-mex cuisine is similar to Mexican food and is more popular in Arizona than the regional Southwest cuisine found in most of Arizonas bordering states. A great place to sample Authentic Sonoran cuisine is at El Minuto Cafe, a restaurant dating back to 1936 set inside an adobe house.
Whether your there for cuisine, a trip into the wild, wild west or a spot of golfTucson is sure to serve up just the kind of entertainment your looking for.
