This bridge built in 1831 and spanned the Thames River in London was replaced by the British and sold to an Arizona investor in 1968. The Bridge was dismantled and shipped to America where it was put back together and rests along the lake. After time in this scenic setting we continue to Phoenix for the evening.  (B)

A special stop is made to experience the “Spirit of the Old West” with a visit to Old Tucson – one of Arizona’s top Wild West attractions! Step back in time as you make your way through town, walking the same streets made famous by movie legends such as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Elizabeth Taylor, Steve Martin, Sharon Stone and Martin Short. Site of more than 400 films and commercial productions, we have lunch in the ”old town”. Later we travel across New Mexico for an overnight in El Paso, Texas. (B,L)
