If you enjoy the old wild west 1800's this is the place for you...just wish they had dirt roads in town. Lots and lots of stores salons and restaurants line the streets. Keep in mind though that not all the buildings are original. But still a great place/small town with lots to do

If seeing Tombstone, you must take a stroll down historic Allen St, where all the action happened. Stroll the wooden sidewalks of yesteryear and step back in time to see Stagecoaches and horse drawn wagons parade up and down the street, get in touch with your inner Wyatt Earp and shoot a real Colt 45 peacemaker, take an old tyme...

Yes, it's a bunch of stores. Yes, there are a lot of people dressed up as cowboys. Yes, it's a little goofy that there's a sign with an arrow pointing to the place where Morgan Earp died inside a shop...right on a table of 2 for $20 souvenir t-shirts, apparently. But if you can overlook the commercialism and the kitsch,... More

Walking on Allen stredt is like your back in time. Seeing cowboys and cowgirls walking around, stage couch coming and going, hearing the music from the saloons were something else... I sure didn't want to leave....

You can spend a whole day walking up and down Allen Street and you will never be bored. It is so much fun, between the shops and the interesting characters walking around. Loved it.

Allen street is great during the day but dies down at night. It really feels like you are in 1882. Dont buy mixed drinks at any of the saloons because they are watered down stay with beer and wine.

History buffs, fans of the old west, and almost everyone else can talk a walk back in time to the Old West of the late 1800's. Tombstone nearly became a ghost town in the 1930's, but was able to successfully revive itself and now is a thriving tourist spot, with Allen Street serving as the center of the action and... More

This is well done the street is shut off for tourists and has the stage coach rides up and down. The last time I was there the locals put on a show of the gunfight with the Earps. This time the show was not on I was a bit disappointed as the show was well done. Every dresses up for... More

The Saloons, the horse carriages, the people dressed up. If you dont like this, then done come to Tombstone at all. The Saloons are probably the best experience. Good food too.
