There are so many shops to see and walk through, you need all day to accomplish this. We saw everything from jewelry, to boots, Stetson hats, saddlery shops, bars, and on and on. Old wooden sidewalks with townsfolk dressed in era-clothing, gave the visitor a bit of living in a different time. Well worth a visit!!

Not sure what we expected from a visit to Tombstone. But we didn't really feel the "old west" vibe, since it's not really a preserved or restored Old West town. We felt Old Tucson Studios gives a better sense of what life was like in 1880. There are lots of fun and funky shops on Allen Street, so it's a... More

There's nothing like Tombstone. I had gone to Dodge City for the Western history but it's so built up and modern, you have to go Tombstone to see the real thing. I hope they can keep taking care of the history for years to come so the next generation can see it.

Shops, saloons, cowboys, stagecoaches and other sights line historic Allen Street. You'll feel like you stepped back in time. Think about the Earp brothers, Doc Holliday, the McLaurys, the Clantons, Big Nose Kate, the Birdcage Theater, the Crystal Palace and, oh...don't forget to bring your wallet.

We loved the period costumes that everyone wore; the feel of the place was very authentic. We had an "old time" picture made, wandered in the shops and museums and had a great time.

I lodged in Sierra Vista and enjoyed several drives through the vast desert with lonely windmills, scrub, distant ranches, etc... before arriving. The towns still cool, historically, though a bit "touristy" and gingerbread to be that authentic in many respects. The Birdcage creeped me out (definately haunted), but the shops and townspeople were friendly and not pushy. The corral shootout... More

This is a great tourist area. Plenty of shops for all your tourist needs. Decent places to eat and all the history of the area. There are a number of places that charge for their museums, etc. But this is great history and worth the money. Plan on a few hours for just walking the street.

As a native of Arizona I've been to Tombstone a few times and have seen it change to it's now commercial insult. It wasn't that long ago when you could walk the streets and an 'unannounced' gunfight would break out preceded with the usual cowboy argument. Now... as you make your way up Allen St or back a cowboy hustler... More
