THE TURQUOISE TRAIL - A HISTORICAL WALKING TOUR OF DOWNTOWN TUCSON


The Turquoise Trail is a 2.5-mile-long loop through downtown Tucson, clearly defined by a turquoise stripe down the sidewalk. This easy trail highlights buildings and sites of historical interest, some of which date back to the 18th century. This is Tucson’s Presidio region, the former site of Presidio San Agustin del Tucson, built by Spanish soldiers. What began as a Spanish fortress, eventually laid the groundwork for the city of Tucson. The Turquoise Trail can be done in segments, and at whatever pace you’d like. The bus will be cruising the same route, so you can jump on, or jump off, as you please. There are more than 20 restaurants within a few blocks of the trail, so you’ll have a lot to choose from for lunch on self, and most of the sites on the tour are marked with historical plaques that provide additional information. Everyone will have their own map, outlining all 23 historic sites along the way. This is a fun and easy walk—a perfect tour for the month of January! *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

Don’t be fooled by the name—the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is more zoo than museum—and it is one of the best zoos in the nation. The Sonoran Desert of central and southern Arizona and parts of northern Mexico, contains within its boundaries, not only arid lands, but also forested mountains, springs, rivers and streams. To reflect this diversity, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum exhibits encompass the full spectrum of Sonoran Desert life—from plants and insects to fish, reptiles and mammals—and all are on display in very natural settings. Coyotes and javelinas are cozy in their compounds, surrounded by fences that are nearly invisible. We’ll see black bears, mountain lions, prairie dogs and bighorn sheep, and explore the fabulous walk-in hummingbird aviary. We’ll enjoy 16 individual desert botanical gardens along an easy walking trail that lopes through the museum. We’ll also enjoy lunch on self, with your choice of either the upscale Ocotillo Café, or Ironwood Terraces, where lunch is served cafeteria style.

THE HISTORIC GADSDEN HOTEL


Just a few miles north of the Mexican border, Douglas, Arizona, once a remote ranching town, is home to the notorious Gadsden Hotel. Built in 1902, then destroyed by fire, the Gadsden was rebuilt in 1929 in the Art Nouveau style—offering a magnificent Tiffany stained glass window overlooking the lobby, and a sweeping Italian marble staircase up which Pancho Villa reportedly rode his horse. The hotel provided gracious hospitality to the growing business brought in by the mining industry and the settling of the Arizona Territory. The lobby of the Gadsden, “the living room” hosted cattlemen, ranchers, copper mining executives and businessmen. For all of the Gadsden’s rich history, the hotel also had a dark side—hosting gamblers, and notable lawless characters of the American West. Famously haunted, guests and staff members have reported paranormal encounters on every floor, with the third floor seeming to be the epicenter. The basement of the Gadsden is beyond fascinating—a 7,000 square foot labyrinth of twenty rooms—which secretly housed a speakeasy, bootleg whiskey tunnels, brothels, and more. Day One: We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee and goodies, on way to Tombstone—The Town Too Tough To Die. Tombstone is home to many great little restaurants where we’ll enjoy lunch on self, and later take some time to stroll the blood-soaked streets, before jumping back on the bus headed for Douglas. We’ll arrive at the Gadsden Hotel, check into our beautifully renovated hotel rooms, and after a refresh we’ll gather at the Saddle & Spur Saloon for Happy Hour—first round included! Later we’ll enjoy dinner on self at The Casa Segovia Restaurant, also located in the hotel. A great favorite with the locals, The Casa Segovia’s affordable menu runs from American favorites to traditional Mexican dishes. After dinner we’ll be joined by Anel Lopez, who along with her husband Florencio, currently owns the Gadsden. Anel will guide us on a spooky tour of the third floor, and then take us down into the basement. Anel loves to lead guests through the maze-like basement, recounting the darker history that arose from the underbelly of the hotel! Day Two: Breakfast is on self at the hotel, then it’s bags out and we’re off to explore Slaughter Ranch, the former home of John Slaught—Civil War veteran, Texas Ranger, trail-driver, cattle-king, sheriff, Arizona state representative and professional gambler. John Slaughter, more than anyone else, brought law and order to the Arizona Territory, with his six-shooter, repeating shotgun and Henry rifle. He was admired by Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok, Billy the Kid and Pat Garret, just to name a few. To visit Slaughter Ranch is to truly take a step back in time. Originally known as San Bernardino Ranch, the atmosphere seems untouched since John Slaughter’s time. We’ll enjoy the spectacular scenery and wildlife, surrounding the old adobe ranch house, ice house, wash house, granary, commissary and more. Slaughter Ranch offers a glimpse of what life was like when John Slaughter rode. From here we’ll head to Bisbee, located 90 miles southeast of Tucson in the scenic Mule Mountains. Founded in 1880, Bisbee was one of the most cultured cities in the American West, the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco. Downtown Bisbee still retains much of its Cosmopolitan charm, with its mining camp roots also fully on display in the notorious Brewery Gulch district, once home to 50 saloons and several brothels. We’ll explore the streets of Bisbee, now home to many interesting shops and galleries, and we’ll enjoy lunch on self with several wonderful restaurants to choose from. Midafternoon we’ll head for home, enjoying the incredibly scenic rolling hills of Southern Arizona and plenty of great stops along the way. This is a fabulous and affordable tour! Do not hesitate to call in your reservations—hotel rooms are very limited. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

If Mumford and Sons hung out with the Dixie Chicks ‘plus one’ at an Eagles Concert, you’d have the Redhead Express. What genre is Redhead Express? Every band is asked the same question, meant to define them, categorize them, to place them in a small box, neatly beside other similar musicians. Certainly their early study of mountain music along with their acoustic instruments suggests an American Folk influence. However, vocal influences are quite varied, reaching into Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop and both early and modern Country Music. Some refer to Redhead Express as Folk-Rock or Folk-Pop while others like the Alternative Country label.

AMERIND FOUNDATION & LUNCH AT THE TRIANGLE T RANCH

We’re on our way to Texas Canyon, situated between the Little Dragoon Mountains to the north, and the Dragoon Mountains to the south. The scenery is just incredible, even by Arizona standards—miles and miles of giant granite boulders, stacked high. The stagecoach route of the Butterfield Overland Mail passed through Texas Canyon from 1858 until the outbreak of the Civil War in 1862 when the stage line suspended operations. The canyon is historically within the range of the Chiricahua Apache, and Cochise made his last stronghold close by in the Dragoon Mountains during the mid-1870. Now Texas Canyon is home to the historic Triangle T Guest Ranch, a long-time filming location for many commercials, movies and TV shows. We’ll enjoy lunch on self at the saloon, offering delicious mesquite grilled burgers and steaks, and also homemade soups, fresh salads and so much more. After lunch we’ll head over to the Amerind Foundation, which is more than a museum—also a research center, library, and art gallery—dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Native American cultures and their histories. “Amerind” is a contraction of the words “American” and “Indian.” The Amerind Museum exhibits tell the story of America’s first peoples from Alaska to South America and from the last Ice Age to the present. The art gallery features works on western themes by such artists as Carl Oscar Borg, William Leigh, Frederic Remington, and Andy Tsinnijinnie, and one room in the art gallery is reserved for the presentation of contemporary Native American art. The museum store offers southwestern arts, crafts, and books on prehistory, history, and Native American cultures. The building itself is a remarkable Spanish Colonial Revival, designed by noted Tucson architect Merritt Starkweather. This is an incredible tour from beginning to end, and you will not want to miss it. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.
