The Western frontier earned its wild reputation when shifty indigenous cactuses let townspeople sup on their secretly tequila-filled innards. Kick up a Western party with today's deal: for $15, you get two Town Passes to Rawhide Western Town and Steakhouse (a $30 value), located in Chandler. Hours of operation vary by season and are subject to change; visit the website for the latest hour information.
A Town Pass at Rawhide lets weekend cow-wranglers saunter up to many of the Old West–themed attractions as many times as they like for a single day. Teach tots important human-donkey mind-melding techniques at the petting zoo, or let greenhorn lone-guns take a tottering ride atop a stout burro. More advanced cowpokes can attempt to drink a milkshake atop the Widowmaker mechanical bull, clamber up the Deadman's Drop rock climbing wall, or relax and leave the high-flying stunts to the daredevils at the Six Gun Theater, or by perusing the rambling thoroughfare's stretch of shops.
A mythic history radiates from this 1880s outpost, full of lone wanderers and statesmen cleaving land from the Starbucks–free wilderness. For 40 years, its suite of attractions has drawn extensive acclaim, including an award for kid-friendliness and a feature on the Food Network. It will soon return to the TV screen for a 13-week miniseries called "Road to Rawhide," which will air on the Travel Channel.
Multiple press outlets including the Food Network have featured Rawhide Western Town and Steakhouse. AZ Central named it the Best Western Experience in Arizona, and OpenTable coined it one of the most kid-friendly restaurants in 2010.
