Interested in the "old days," pardner? Sure you are. Everybody is. What was it like back then and how did it all get started? That's what folks want to know. Head out north of Phoenix, Arizona for a day trip and you can visit a very interesting re-creation of earlier times. But was it all cowboys and pioneers? No, sir. There was another side of Old West Arizona that's sometimes overlooked: the ancient peoples who established their cultures here long before Europeans arrived. This trip includes both the pioneering world and the Native American world. And at the end of the day, you can find a place to have a meal with an Old-West feel.
