Trail Dust Town
Here's a replica of a 19th-century Western town with small shops offering Old West souvenirs, galleries and restaurants, most notably the Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse and the Dakota Cafe . Of course, there is also a custom leather store, western attire, wooden sidewalks and a central plaza with a gazebo. To enhance the fun, there is also a vintage 1920 Fiesta del Presidio carousel with pinatas, a mining museum and a C.P. Huntington train; in short, it's a great place for kids. Wild west stunt shows are presented Tuesday through Sunday. It's also the locale for Trail Dust Days, an annual cowboy show in late February. Most stores open around noon, but the action doesn't really start until after 5p.
