December 2014 - Old Tucson Studios AZ

Old Tucson Studios is a movie studio and theme park just west of Tucson, Arizona, adjacent to the Tucson Mountains and close to the western portion of Saguaro National Park. Built in 1939 for the movie Arizona, it has been used for the filming of several movies and television westerns since then, such as Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and Little House on the Prairie. It was opened to the public in 1960, and historical tours are offered about the movies filmed there, along with live cast entertainment featuring stunt shows and shootouts.



The park is surrounded by Saguaro cactus and nestled at the foot of the Tucson mountains.

Our World Tuesday - Mesilla NM

Our World Tuesday

December 2014 - Mesilla NM

We stopped in this town before we headed out for Tucson last week. Such a pretty place, it would be great to come back in the afternoon when the restaurants are open.

MESILLA ("LITTLE TABLELAND") IS THE BEST-KNOWN AND MOST VISITED HISTORICAL COMMUNITY IN SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO.

The historic town of Mesilla lies just west of Las Cruces along I-10 and is called New Mexico’s Best Vacation Getaway. It is the epitome of small town charm at its finest, serving as a great location for afternoon shopping and dining, where award winning cafes and restaurants and unique stores surround the town focal point of the historic Plaza. Visitors often enjoy the quiet ambiance of the Plaza with the peaceful back drop of the San Albino Basilica, I posted about the church here..

The history of the Town boasts everything from the Civil War to Billy the Kid.
