A railway stop since the late 1800s, Benson is now best known as the gateway to the famous Kartchner Caverns, among the largest and most spectacular caves in the USA. The town itself is spread out and sleepy.
About 15 miles to the east of Benson, in Dragoon, is the Amerind Museum & Art Gallery. The complex is near Texas Canyon in the Little Dragoon Mountains, which is known for its clumps of giant and photogenic granite boulders. For a closer look, swing by the historic Triangle T Guest Ranch, which got a professional revamp on the reality show Hotel Impossible.
