- Relive the legends of one of the Wild West's most famous towns, Tombstone Arizona, known as "The Town too Tough to Die." You'll also visit Mission San Xavier de Bac on your return trip to Phoenix.
Spend the day visiting Tombstone Arizona, perhaps the most legendary mining camp of Arizona. America's best example of Western heritage, Tombstone's 1880s buildings and artifacts are well preserved and featured in numerous museums.
In Tombstone you'll visit the Birdcage Theatre, which was reported by the New York Times back in 1882 to be to be the wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast. Also, see Boot Hill Cemetery, perhaps the most famous graveyard of the Old West. Buried at the site are various victims of violence and disease in Tombstone's early years, including those from the O.K. Corral. Also, visit the courthouse, now a museum filled with the guns of those who tamed the territory. Of course you'll see the famous O.K. Corral where the most famous gunfight in the history of the Old West took place.
On the way back to Phoenix, you'll stop at the White Dove of The Desert, one of the Southwest's best preserved missions at San Xavier del Bac, just outside Tucson. The historic Spanish Catholic mission is known as the "place where the water appears", as the Santa Cruz River (which runs underground) surfaces nearby.
Relax in the luxury van on your trip back to Phoenix though the Sonoran Desert.
