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 Wednesday through Sunday 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!

Touristy-YES! But why not. They have a live-action gunslinger show, a train, small little kiddie Ferris wheel and other rides, and a Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse. Plenty of shops and a good time for everyone of all ages.

Trail Dust Town's fate is inexorably bound to Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse, even though they are actually a collection of distinct entities. There's highbrow shops, lowbrow shops, silly shops, executive offices, period perfect static displays and modern rides, a shooting gallery, a mini "train", a gaudy...More

Having not been by in many years it was nice to reacquaint ourselves with the venue and its offerings, although the pricing seemed a little high for the quality of beef, which was good, albeit slightly less than the price levels they charge. Beyond this...More
