When the guides and staff at Goodenough Mine Tour opened their 1879 Tombstone silver mine to the public, their achievement was more than a year in the making. They had worked tirelessly, blasting compressed air and water to clear blocked passageways, cutting through solid rock, and mixing concrete that they'd carried into the mine on their backs. Once they finished clearing the tunnels, they built stairs and railings and installed lights. Finally, guides began leading tours through the mine's original passageways.
Today, Goodenough Mine Tour's guides escort visitors as far as 100 feet underground into the mine's 19th-century depths, where they divulge the history and uses of 130-year-old structures and artifacts such as strap-rail, lanterns, and dynamite fuses. They sometimes lead visitors through narrow passageways and into stopes––large chambers created by ore removal––or up ladders and into the living rooms of friendly mole people.
The vintage-style trolleys in Tombstone Trolley Tours' fleet trace the timeline of their town and offer a narrative history of its past during half-hour historic tours. The vehicles drive by architectural and scenic landmarks as a guide recounts their stories, relaying historical information on such topics as the rise of silver mining and the Boot Hill Graveyard. Other tours in the past have covered spectral hauntings, or carried audiences to Helldorado Town for thrillingly staged gunfights. Each trolley is wheelchair accessible and equipped with air conditioning, and the staff welcomes pets on board free of charge. Tours run continuously from 10:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. every day of the week, and gunfight shows begin at 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
Bored with their empty nest and tired of a grinding commute, Rhona MacMillan and Mark Jorve opted to marry their love of wine and the outdoors, and naturally, Zarpara Vineyard was born. There, they oversee a roster of handcrafted wines, all available for sampling at their tasting room, including the recently released sauvignon blanc or the 2012 sangiovese.
Upon planting their first vineyard in 1990, the Callaghan family found their efforts tested by a harsh heat wave that killed thousands of their young vines. But instead of sowing sour grapes for the winemaking business, the Callaghans took it as a learning experience, planting and replanting until they found tempranillo, riesling, and bordeaux varieties perfectly suited to the arid Arizona climate. The hard work in the field also pays off later, as the high-quality grapes require lots of barrels and little else to mature into wines that have been served at three White House dinners and led former Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano to dub the winery a state treasure. Since 2008, Callaghan Vineyards has also earned more than 10 medals in the Jefferson Cup Awards, which honors the best US wineries, and—like the party-hosting leg of a triathlon—includes competitors on an invitation-only basis.
