Douglas and Sonora Mexico
Douglas and its environs boast a wealth of attractions for birders and hikers. Douglas' avenues are lined with historic buildings including the Gadsden Hotel, one of the last of the turn-of-the-century's grand hotels. You can relive the 1880s at the historic John Slaughter Ranch Museum just 18 miles east of town. The international border crossing takes you to Douglas' neighboring city, Agua Prieta, Sonora. It's a portal to the wonders of northern Mexico. Bustling streets are lined with beautifully decorated shops and a downtown square fronts the Iglesia de Guadalupe.
