Allen street was closed off to vehicular traffic. In its place we're horse-drawn carriages and lots of walkers! We had fun walking on the wide sidewalks or down the middle of the road. The sidewalks and street were well-maintained, making it easy for handicapped patrons. Fun!

We thoroughly enjoyed strolling down Allen Street, stopping to browse the many gift shops, historic buildings, restaurants, saloons and western wear. When the heat is beating down, a stop in the saloon makes for a great respite. We made sure we had our photo taken in one of the gift shops dressed in latter l800 garb. Brought home some great...

There some mighty fine eatin' places on Allen Street and I've tried them all. There are a lot of tourisity shops on Allen Street with many quality goods offered and a lot of touristy things. Good food and stuff. Like a desert Pismo Beach.

We loved the little town and all of the cute storefronts. The history was cool and it was a great way to spend the day!

We loved the complete throw back in time this town has to offer! They have embraced and preserved their history and it is well worth your time to check it out. There are many shops to duck into and buy souvenirs and western wear from, as well as old time photo studios, preserved buildings and gun shows to choose from.... More

While on a motorcycle road trip we decided to stop by this famous tourist trap. We were so pleasantly surprised! The people seemed so proud of their town and genuinely wanted to make sure we were having a good time. They happily pose for pictures in their period costumes, even giving photo tips on how to take the best pic... More

The town of Tombstone is filled with so much history, and Allen Street was specific to so much of it. Walking the street for me was like walking in the shoes of the old West.

The most interesting thing about Tombstone is that folks are dressed in western outfits with pistols in the holsters and the like. One can take a tour in a horse drawn carriage or simply stroll the streets. I liked that the streets are closed off to cars from north to south. It's a neat place to take a day off.... More

At first glance it looks pretty historic but then you start to stroll down the street and realize its tourist city. Every kind of junk store you can imagine. Not unexpected though. A few good locations that sell native American art and the storefronts are very Tombstoney looking. Many of the saloons are quite interesting inside with many doo-dads from... More
