Experience The Old West In Arizona With These 18 Amazing Places

If there’s any place in the country that best defines and depicts the Old West, it’s Arizona. Depending on who’s telling the narrative, our state’s history was either a mythos of paradise sprung to life, a romanticized image of a cowboy and his horse, or life interrupted by an exceedingly violent time period. All of those stories create the image that Arizona continues to carry today and can be safely revisited without needing to make a time machine. We’re going to take a look at a handful of those Old West examples today so check out what made the list!
