Tombstone Things to Do!

Arizona Main
Sierra Vista

Jacob's Review:
   The museum is just a bunch of Indian pots and some paintings - it is a little boring for kids, but the rocks and picnic area is really cool - there is little caves and stuff you can go in. And there used to be indians around here for real!

Dad's Notes:
   Museum of Indian Cultures, the Amerind Foundation (Short for American Indian) continues it´s American Indian Culture Research. On display are Shields, weapons, bead work, tools, pottery, clothing and more. Situated among unique rock formations of Texas Canyon.

   The museum has an extensive pottery and artifact collection - some (like Jacob) may not get much from the collection. However this is the perfect picnic place - with free picnic tables and such unique rock formations. Box Lunches are available for group tours.

   Overall recommendation: When driving I-10 towards New Mexico, take the very short jaunt and stop for the scenery and picnic in Texas Canyon!

Jacob Tip:   You should keep a frisbee in your parents car - it should be as important as a spare tire and a spare bottle of water! Trust me - it will come in handy!
