Experience the historic old west!

The last surviving stagecoach town in America is right in our own backyard. Nestled in the Superstition Mountain range is the authentic old Western town, Tortilla Flat.

Originally a camping ground for prospectors searching for gold, the town got its start in 1904 as a stagecoach stop for freight haulers heading toward the Roosevelt Dam.

It's a destination drive, and just walking the boardwalk really takes you back in time. 

You can grab a burger and some sasparilla at the Superstition Saloon, or take a seat on one of their saddle barstools and check out the wallpaper. It's made of money from around the world!

For dessert, mosey on over to the general store for their world famous prickly pear gelato.

And you can even catch an old Western gun fight!

From December 26 through Easter, you can really get a look at life in the wild West.

So whether you're just taking a scenic drive on the Apache Trail, or just need an afternoon getaway with the kids, Tortilla Flat will always be right here!
