Speakeasy In Tucson

DillingerWhen you think of the symbols of Tucson’s past, there’s a pretty clear theme: cowboy hat, spurs, lasso, and a six shooter.

While we’re proud of our Southwest heritage, it’s not the only part of our history we celebrate. Every January we hang up our spurs and six-shooters for spats and Tommy guns as we celebrate a legendary criminal’s stay in our state.

Dillinger DaysJanuary 22 and 23, visit The Hotel Congress for Dillinger Days. The two day event celebrates the capture of 1934’s most infamous bank robbing gangster, John Dillinger. On Friday, adults dress up in their best Prohibition-era costumes for a speakeasy party at Side Car. On the 23rd, Dillinger and his gang drive into town to re-enact the capture. Later, mingle with re-enactors, get your historical questions answered, and listen to live music.

Celebrate an Old Fashioned Christmas

holiday lightsWhen you hear the term “Old Fashioned Christmas”, what do you think of? A sleigh drifting through snow? Kids building a snowman?

How about a six-shooter and cowboy hats?

cowboyIn the southwest, we do things a little differently. All December the Western Heritage Foundation brings a little of the Old West to the holiday season with their Old Time Holiday shows. Old Tucson is the stage for the festivities, which begin when Santa Claus comes rolling into town on a wagon. See two live holiday shows set in the Old West, enjoy a Christmas story featuring dioramas from an 1823 storybook, and meet some of the animals that hang out in Arizona during the holidays at our petting zoo.

Stadium GolfAfter a holiday hootenanny, it’s time to celebrate another great Arizona tradition: year-round golfing. One of the benefits of living in the southwest can be found in our moderate winters. Take advantage of our snow-free greens by booking a trip with Tucson and Scottsdale Golf Vacations. We boast trips in Tucson and Scottsdale that can be tailored to fit your needs. Each trip allows you to experience three rounds of golf on the best courses in Southern Arizona. Choose courses that challenge your game, or courses that allow you to sit back and enjoy the diverse beauty of Arizona, whichever option best suits your vacation plans.
