Home of mountain vistas, historic mines and towns too tough to die.
History abounds in Arizona's self-proclaimed frontier land. Heading southeast from Tucson, a new world of caves, artists’ communities, the Old West and more open up. Take a road trip to see reenactments of the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and tour one of the nation's oldest copper mines in the towns of Tombstone, where walking down the street feels like stepping back in time. Ride a real stagecoach and shop for your own authentic cowboy garb.

And with events like the Cochise County Cycling Classic and the Southwest Wings Birding & Nature Festival, Cochise County isn't just for cowboys. Explore vineyards, farms and the lush natural beauty of the San Pedro River Valley, or venture to the towns of Sierra Vista and Willcox for a more modern take on this historic county's heritage.
