If you’re looking for an evening of family fun, or even couple fun, try Trail Dust Town on Tanque Verde Road here in Tucson. It is a miniature western town offering two restaurants, an evening shootout stunt show for free, shops that are open primarily in the evening, and even a cavalry museum. Throughout the town are a covered wagon, a stage coach, and a gypsy wagon. It’s one of the most popular eastside fun locations. We often send our guests at Hacienda del Desierto for a taste of the old west.
Small children can enjoy a miniature train ride around the complex. If you are planning to spend the evening there, plan on eating at one of the two good restaurants. The steak house is Pinnacle Peak and the other restaurant is Dakota Cafe, a favorite of ours.
