In the early 1950s, Tucson was a sleepy desert community of approximately 45,000 people. Around this time, a conglomeration of buildings developed into a western-themed commercial complex known as Trail Dust Town. Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse quickly gained popularity and became the anchor of this complex. Today, Pinnacle Peak and Trail Dust Town are rich with their own history, and people come from all over the world to experience the old west at these centerpieces of Tucson. Don't miss a wild west stunt show by the Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros! Showing nightly at 7 and 8 PM, the shows are full of lots of high-falls, low-falls, gunfights, fistfights, explosions, and family friendly slapstick comedy! Take a ride on the CP Huntington Railroad! The miniature train is fun for all ages, and its path reveals some of Trail Dust Town's hidden gems. Enjoy the carousel and Ferris wheel at Polly Anna Park! This new park is a beautiful area perfect for an evening of rides, popcorn, and taking in the blissful Tucson weather. Polly Anna Park is also available for birthday parties! Home to many shops, Trail Dust Town is a perfect destination for gifts and souvenirs. Trail Dust Town is also home to the elegant Savoy Opera House- a beautiful venue with Victorian charm. The Savoy is ideal for weddings, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras, and more. The Museum Of The Horse Soldier features an impressive collection of original United States Cavalry artifacts. Uniforms, weapons, and equipment dating from the Civil War through the end of the mounted cavalry in 1942 are on display. Also, don't miss the Heirloom Farmer's Market at Trail Dust Town on Friday mornings from 8 to noon in the spring and summer, and 9 to 1 in the fall and winter!

I was pleasantly surprised with Trail Dust Town. It's a cool little pretend western town that is really well done. Cute old fashioned buildings around a courtyard. Neat little shops and fun thematic entertainment. The kids and out-of-town guests will love it. Wander around the little town .. and then go have dinner at Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse.

My son husband and I went on our annual anniversary trip and happened upon the wonderful little place! Our son being 1 and a half was a little bit young for some activities but overall it was perfect. They have a train ride, merry-go-round, gold mining, the live performance, candy shop, indoor play shooting range and arcade, and a bunch... More

It's tradition in the wild west where boots and hats are allowed. No ties... so if you want to play a fun joke on someone wear a tie and watch the servers come out and cut it off in front of everyone and hang it from the ceiling. Great BBQ and Steaks. Take the train ride and stop for a... More

Just stopped by for a drink and decided to see the Stunt Show. It was exceptional and the actors did a great job with their antics, fight scenes, and overall performance. A nice stop, but not much else happening in the nice little area referred to as Trail Dust Town. We will return to try the restaurant, but would love... More

We love coming here all year round to enjoy the cute little town and restaurants. The kids love riding the train and carousel. This is a family favorite for us. They have a cute candy store, magic shop, shows, you can pan for gold and take many pictures throughout the town. You won't be disappointed.

Yearly, I have taken groups of students and parents to Trail Dust Town after a exciting day of field trips in Southern Arizona. It is a great western town and I love everything about it except for the rather recent edition of a Haunted House. The entire Haunted House and the people who run it are plain creepy. In my... More

...if you don't have time to go all the way to Old Tucson, this little Old West theme park provides that obligatory taste of the Victorian West that every visitor craves. And there's free parking and free admission so you can bring the kids and all the kids' friends. There's limited shopping, but the Dakota is a decent restaurant, and... More

Several wonderful restaurants, shops, merry-go-round, and western gun show enactments all in one area. Park and wander the grounds, shop, and have lunch or dinner. Dakota Restaurant and Pinnacle Pete's are my favorites. Neckties will be cut off and displayed on the walls of Pinnacle Pete's. Practically next door is Golf n' Stuff for game arcade fun, bumper boats, laser... More
