We were at a restaurant in Benson which is about 20 miles away when I saw Tombstone on a map. The waitress confirmed it was *the* Tombstone so we decided to go and check it out - I am glad we did. Allen Street is the center of Tombstone's tourist attractions, it is closed to traffic and is almost like... More

If you like the old west like I do,then this is for you. With folk dressed like they were in the 1880"s,the wooden sidewalks, stagecoaches, & old buildings this is a great place to visit. It is also very good that the street is closed for motor traffic. Also everybody you meet is so friendly....loved it!!!

This is all very amazing, and if you suspend reality for a bit you will find yourself back in your favorite western. The bar maids hang out on the street if not busy inside and of course the are gun fighters wandering around. Don't miss the stage coach.

If you ever wanted to ride in a real stagecoach Tombstone is the place. They have two companies that offer stagecoach rides around the historic town. The stagecoach ride is bumpy so if you have a bad back you may want to skip the stagecoach and ride the trolley. Both offer informative facts of the old western town.

As the author of several books on Tombstone's history, I highly recommend this building. While some of the things in the museum aren't historic to the theatre, they are interesting. Tombstone, at its height in 1883, boasted 7000 residents! Sherry Monahan

If you love the wild west, Cowboys and those classic movies you will love tombstone. Take a stroll around town, or go have a drink amongst Cowboys in the saloon made to look as if your in a 1880s saloon. Highly recommended.

Fantastic on a Saturday with so many people from the local area dressing up and playing the part, putting little shows on all day. Really felt like you were win the old west. Great atmosphere

Walking down this street with buildings preserved from the end of the 1800s, it was for me like entering into history. It made me remember all the films I had seen about the Old American West. On one hand it´s nice to see that most buildings are preserved and restored in this historical town. Like for instance the Court House... More
