"Wickenburg's Great - No Lie!" Wickenburg by Karnubawax

Wickenburg Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 57 photos

Wickenburg is a great little town about an hour NW of Phoenix. It's a perfect place to stop on the Las Vegas-Phoenix run. There's plenty of inexpensive hotels, good food, and an excellent western museum. Lots of folks come here to spend time on the dude ranches - of which there are quite a lot of.

The main attraction in town is the suprisingly good Desert Caballeros Museum. The Hassayampa River Preserve is supposed to be really nice as well. Legend has it that if you take a drink from the Hassayampa, you'll never tell the truth again!

Wickenburg is really the first truly "western" town you hit on the drive from Vegas. Don't gloss over this delightful little stop. What's your hurry to get to Phoenix, anyway?
