Benson's Annual Lantern Festival
926 N Madison Ave Benson, AZ 85602 Benson, Arizona 85602
In the heart of Cochise County, Benson proudly calls itself home to the living caves of Kartchner Caverns State Park and the peaceful Holy Trinity Monastery. Its history as a stopping point on the Southern Pacific Railroad line is ingrained in the city's culture. Before heading to Kartchner Caverns or elsewhere in Cochise County, stop by the visitor's center for tips on where to eat and things to see. Kids (and adults) can even try the train simulator for free and earn themselves a nifty souvenir Benson Train Engineer Certificate.
