Arizona Towns that will Take You Back in Time

Abigail's Adventures

Arizona is filled with a variety of beautiful and distinctive towns. Wilcox, Kingman, Bisbee, and Tombstone are all towns in Arizona that make you feel like you traveled back in time. They each have unique qualities about them that make you feel a glimpse of the past.

Willcox, Arizona

Willcox is a small country town with a Rex Allen Museum, Marty Robbins Museum, a historical theater, and abandoned buildings. The town of Willcox has an old western look and country feel to it that takes you back in time.

Willcox has many abandoned buildings that make you wonder what life was like during the time before the building was abandoned. Near Apple Annie's in Willcox, there is a beautiful old house. When I saw the house, I looked at it and wondered who used to live there and what's the story. Old and abandoned buildings are like history frozen in time.

Apple Annie's is a place in Willcox that has fields of trees to pick apples from. Apple Annie's also has a pumpkin patch. I love Apple Annie's pumpkin patch so much because of its sunflower field. It cost a dollar to pick sunflowers from the field.

Picking apples at Apple Annie's is a peaceful experience. Apple Annie's has cute gift shops and country stores to get jams, honey, and more!

Tombstone will make you feel like you traveled through time to the old west. Explore the western town and watch gunfight shows. There are actors all around the town that are meant to stay in character and make you feel like you are in the old west.

There are endless things to do in Tombstone. You can go on trolley rides, ghost tours, explore inside buildings, and eat at western-themed restaurants. Tombstone is free to explore. Only gunfight shows, tours, and more cost money.
