Old Tucson Studios

Outside of Tucson, over Gates Pass and into the Saguaro National Park, lies a historical gem, completely touristy, and great fun!

The Old Tucson Studios was built to film western movies and if you have ever watched old westerns than you have most likely seen it featured. It was built in 1939, burned some years later and rebuilt. It is now, mostly, a tourist attraction and theme park, although there is certainly no reason more movies or shows might not be filmed there.

Over 200 films and many TV series and movies were filmed here. You can see a complete list here:

You may be surprised by how many of them you know!

The town was originally made to mirror Tucson in the 1860's

OK Corral?

There are lots of interesting exhibits, shows, and fun things to see and do here, so, if in Tucson, check it out.

Next time, on the 4th, we will return to visiting Vietnam memorials. The first one for 2019, the tenth year of this project, will be in California, so join me there, as we have done for 10 years now, at 9:00am.
