Yeah, it's touristy Old West kitsch - but still worth the trip to see the famous bit of gunslinger history for yourself. The area is different than you might expect - and it's near the bigger part of Arizona wine country, if that's how you roll.
Raw physical beauty, a somewhat down-on-the-heels townscape ... a mixed bag that's truly a slice of Arizona's copper mining industry and its aftermath. Check out Apache Leap, the perlite quarries and the rock climbing area.
It's not cheap - but that's what you should expect from a place that makes creative dishes from top-quality ingredients. And trust these guys ... even if there's an ingredient in a dish that you don't usually like, they have a way of making it awesome.
Hiking, biking and rock-scrambling fun just minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Right in the middle of the city, but still a great time. You can also check out the zoo while you're there.
A terrific cave that gets overlooked because of the better-known Kartchner Caverns. The Wild Cave tour will really appeal to the more adventurous types - you have to put on coveralls and helmets for this look at the undeveoloped sections.
