Huachuca Mountain Village – Sierra Vista, AZ
Sierra Vista, Arizona is a sister city to Bisbee, Arizona both a few short miles to the border of Mexico, Fort Huachuca, and Huachuca City. This area is pretty much like a large circle that intersects with State Highway 19, which is a direct route to the second largest city in Arizona: Tucson.
However, if you’re interested in more interesting route, venture up to Tombstone, Arizona (Home of the OK Corral shoot-out) that’s performed most every weekend in front of a large tourist crowd and one exciting, realistic performance by real cowboys you don’t want to miss.
