Where the wild west lives

Save to my Account

Need a quick daytrip but don’€™t want to put a lot of miles on your car? Head to Wickenburg, the one-time dude ranch capital of the world. Spend some time at the acclaimed Desert Caballeros Western Museum (www.westernmuseum.org). Displays featuring a ranch, general store and pioneer home provide interactive opportunities for kids. If anyone misbehaves, take them to the Jailhouse Tree, a 200-year-old tree that served as the town jail for nearly 30 years. Don’€™t forget to make a wish at the Hassayampa Wishing Well, if you dare. It’€™s said that if you do, you’€™ll get your wish but never tell the truth again.
