DAY 3: TUCSON – BISBEE – TOMBSTONE
Today we take a trip back to the Old West as we head this morning to historical Bisbee. Whimsical, colorful and perhaps a little haunted, Bisbee is anything but an ordinary destination. Following the discovery of gold, lead, zinc and copper in the nearby Mule Mountains, Bisbee grew to a population of 20,000 residents and the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco in the early 1900’s and voted as the “Best Historic Small Town in America”. Upon arrival we will don hardhats and slickers and experience the “Queen Mine tour” 1500 feet below ground. Following the tour you will have time to explore the colorful and well preserved architecture, winding streets and alleys. Enjoy lunch on your own at one of the many local restaurants.  Next travel to Tombstone, in its early days Tombstone was a rough and tumble silver-mining town made famous by the O.K. Corral gunfight. Today, you can walk where Wyatt Earp walked, see where the infamous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place, visit American Old West historical places such as the Tombstone Courthouse, Bird Cage Theatre, and more. ‘Mosey’ in to one of the many Old West-style saloons & restaurants for lunch. We will also stop at the historic Boothill Cemetery, just outside of Tombstone, before traveling back to Tucson. Dinner tonight at a popular local restaurant featuring Southwest cuisine.(B) Overnight: Waco

DAY 5: TUCSON – SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK – SONORAN DESERT MUSEUM – OLD TUCSON STUDIOS
After breakfast depart for the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, where you will explore over 90 acres the museum has to offer. This unique museum offers exhibits, vignettes, and collections illustrating the beauty & diversity of the native environment. With 85% of the museum being outdoors, you will get to experience over 1,400 native plant and animal species, naturally. Following the museum, we will head over to Old Tucson Studios, one of Arizona’s top Wild West attractions where the Spirit of the Old West Comes Alive! Old Tucson is the perfect location to take a step back in time. Modeled after an Old West town, this living history site is full of Western experiences, from gun fights & saloon musicals to history & film tours. Walk the same streets made famous by movie legends such as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Elizabeth Taylor and more than 400 films and productions. Later this afternoon we will visit Saguaro National Park. The iconic and giant saguaro is the universal symbol of the American west. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park, to the east and west of the modern city of Tucson. We will stop at the visitor center and head into the west end of the park to view large stands of saguaro cacti.
