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 nightly 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!

This little "town" in Tucson is great fun. Steak house has good food with great service and the stunt show is inexpensive and well done. Our grandkids laughed and laughed. There are also lots of gift shops and rides for the little ones.

Delicious steaks while seated below the cut-off ties of unsuspecting tourists in Pinnacle Peak restaurant! Witty server who patiently answered the Wild West questions of our 8 year old granddaughter,too. We enjoyed the old-time county fair ambience of Pollyanna Park with the cute rides and the train ride around the Town perimeter. And, a really good stunt show right in... More

Went to trail dust town with a group in town for a convention. The gun show was a little cheesy, but worth the price. There are shops with some good souvenirs or gifts.

While waiting to be seated visiting the few stores in the village are worth a visit. Pinnacle Peak Restaurant with its traditions has always been a favorite place to eat. The steaks are good and come in various sizes. I enjoy the pulled pork. It is a great family experience visiting the area.

It's a western themed attraction. The kids (up to preteens) would get the most out of it. Though, us empty nesters enjoyed the evening strolling hand in hand. They have a steakhouse which scored very well, (in my book). All the staff was welcoming and courteous. People who wear neck ties,will have them cut off. Everything was clean. The food... More

This place is so stereotypical of the old west but regardless, it is fun to go there. Especially if you have pre-teenage kids, they seem to just love it.

Great family fun. The rides bring it back to old school rides. The shooting gallery is fun. Walking around you feel like you have traveled back in time. The mine train has a neat storyline with the ride. Purchase the wristband for the attractions it's better cost effective. And be sure to watch the stunt show!!!

Trail Dust Town is a small, old school replication, of a small western town. Totally surrounded by a modern city (Tucson) it does give the vibe of the old west. Home of Pinnacle Peak steak house known for "no ties allowed" if you wear one, they'll cut it off and nail it to the ceiling with thousands of others. Back... More
