Owner description: In the early 1950s, Tucson was a sleepy desert community of approximately 45,000 people. It was then, as legend has it, well outside of the Tucson City limits, several 'Old West' buildings were constructed as a set for a Glenn Ford movie. Afterward, this 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.

“Must-see for visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Trail Dust Town has been around for a long, long time. Once upon a time it really was dusty, with dirt streets and a steak house. It has evolved into a prime tourist (and ok I'll admit it, we locals go there too) attraction. It has the original cowboy steak house, Pinnacle Peak and a variety of cute shops that feature a vintage photographer, old time toy store, chocolate store and art gallery. Fun things to do include the Museum of the Horse, a live gun fight show, a train around the property, and a little kids area with a ferris wheel and merry-go-round that can host birthday parties. It's also fun, after the sun has gone down, to just walk around the little town that has grown from the original dusty Trail Dust Town. Trail Dust Town is very busy during the winter months (prime tourist season).

“Great for dinner and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Trail Dust Town is a great place for kids because there is lots going on. You can have dinner at Pinnacle Peak Steak House, dessert at the candy shop, pick up some gag gifts at the little store and then catch a gun show. Lots of fun, especially for people from out of town.

We ate fabulous steaks at Pinnacle Peak, walked around the wonderful little shops, and ended up watching an hysterical gunfight. It was a great evening.
