    Travel - Cochise County, Arizona

  • Kartchner Caverns State Park
    • Two Spelunkers discovered this living cave in 1974. They kept it secret until it's delicate ecology could be preserved and protected, for generations of visitors to enjoy. It was announced to the world in 1988.

      The awesome Big Room was first opened as an Arizona State Park on November 12, 1999 and visitors were able to stand where the two discoverers initially entered. Recently, another equally exotic area was opened to visitors. The newest area includes The Throne Room where the tallest column in Arizona, The Kublai Khan, stands. Still virtually pristine, this massive limestone cave has 13,000 feet of passages and two rooms as long as football fields. This underground wilderness offers visitors a rare tour through multi-colored cave formations. The temperature inside the caverns averages 68°F year round, with the humidity at 99%.

      Visit Kartchner Caverns State Park - one the top ten caverns of the world and the only one open to the public. Located 12 miles south of Benson, Arizona (and Interstate 10), the caverns are open for tours seven days a week from 7:30 am until 6:00 pm MST, except for Christmas Eve afternoon and Christmas Day. Cave tours are scheduled every 20 minutes starting at 8:40 am to 4:40 pm each day. For reservations (highly recommended) Call 520-586-2283.

  • Tombstone
  • - A Registered Historic National landmark

      Stay at the Wild Rose Inn Bed and Breakfast

      This century-old house is the only remaining two story, clapboard, country Victorian house in Tombstone. Built by an affluent attorney in 1904, it replaced the original house that burned down in the 1880's. It is painted in authentic Victorian colors and is listed on the National Historic Register of Homes. The house has been restored to perfection and still retains the original wood and some of the old gas-light fixtures. It is located within walking distance to the O.K. Corral, site of the famous gunfight with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Clantons.

      .....We spent our wedding night in the honeymoon suite (the Garden Suite) at this delightful historic home. The rooms were spacious and comfortably furnished and our hosts were gracious, when we arrived late in the evening. The Wild Rose Inn is 2 blocks (and a century away) from the bustling main thorofare, where tourists and residents alike mingle on a Saturday night. Yet we were able to walk downtown, past the OK Corral to the Crystal Palace and Big Nose Kate's on the boardwalk on Allen Street. The next morning, a delicious gourmet breakfast was served to us on fine china, in the dining room. As we eagerly consumed our sumptuous meal, we sat surrounded by turn-of-the-century furniture, looking out at the picturesque garden. After breakfast we took a leisurely stroll through the garden which is a white-picket-fenced haven with tall shade trees, beautiful rose bushes, fountain and a Wedding Arbor. We sat in one of the patio areas, sipping our coffee and enjoying the serenity that surrounded us. All to soon, we had to return to our busy lives but we look forward to the next time we visit our neighbors in Tombstone!
