From Oatman we drove to Tucson, Arizona.  Since we are all members of the Moose we decided to camp at the Tucson Moose Lodge.  Their camp ground was a tight fit but we were all able to squeeze in.

The folks at the lodge were awesome! So helpful and friendly and the meals were delicious!  We met a lady who works at Old Tucson Studios and she gave us admission tickets for the place.

If you've never been to Old Tucson Studios you should do so. This is probably one of the best western towns my husband and I have ever visited.  Just fifteen minutes from Tucson at the base of the Tucson Mountains is a preserved slice of Americana. Passing through the gates of a western frontier town, visitors  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 (including Rio Bravo, Gunfight at the OK Corral, The Three Amigos, and  Tombstone) and television productions filmed at the location since 1939.

You can stroll the streets, peeking in the shops and exhibits, have a meal and purchase goodies. 

Be sure to take the stagecoach ride with family and friends.
There are live dance hall shows to entertain you. This is our friend Dave getting his cowboy on! Hang on to that horse Hoss!

 Be sure to visit the old haunted mine and get the willies scared out of you (really.)

If you love the desert and all things western this is the place for you. Loads of saguaro cactus and a breathtaking backdrop of mountains give this place an authentic old west feeling.
