My family and friends visit Tombstone at least 3 times a year. (If not more). We love walking Allen Street. Lots of little shops and boutiques to take in, cafes to grab a bite to eat, and entertainers in the street. Something for everyone! My personal favorites: The Crystal Palace, Longhorn Restaurant, Birdcage Theater, OK Corral and the Historama. There... More

Lots of shops and historic places to visit. It seems a little touristy, but the town wouldn't be what it is without that. Several bars and restaurants. Parking only a couple blocks away. Fun afternoon. On a Monday afternoon in January it was mostly retired folks visiting, which was nice. 😊

The old western town feel is there, but it's a facade for tourists. There are people in period costume, a stage coach, great boardwalk, lots of restaurants and shops. You go here to see the old west buildings, but they are mostly shops. Shopping can be fun as they offer local art, and Arizona and southwest gifts. But...the town feels... More

The best part for me is walking down a proper wood boardwalk. Th shops and saloons off to the side are great and all have really friendly staff.

I've been to Tombstone several times since 1984 and haven't been back since 1993 and was rather disappointed. The authenticity of Tombstone has been compromised by the almighty dollar. The street is closed down now, full of stores that don't belong in an "authentic" setting, such as Harley Davidson, clothing store took over an old saloon, all kinds of crap... More

While most of the buildings are not original from 1881, due to fires, it is well worth a visit to Allen Street. It's highly recommended to walk Allen between 12Midnight and 3am. Many people report encounters with people of the past.

There is so much shopping, exhibits, history to see and do, it's a long day. Everybody on the street (locals) are very informative, they are full of history and eager to share it with you. There are people ( local actors) everywhere there to show you things and tell you the history. Fun day!

Many shops, OK Corral, Watt & Tarbell Undertakers Ghost Tour, Bird Cage Theater. Lots to see and do on Allen Street. Our favorite place was the night time Ghost Tour with Sister Paranormal located in the Watt & Tarbell building. VERY active!!! We haven't been disappointed yet. The ladies there are very nice and respectful. Totally worth the price. Make... More

Must see to believe. You're walking into the 1800s without a doubt and the people are wonderful. Good food, good service, and good folks
