If you want to dress up in the style of the "Old West", then this is the place for you. Otherwise, avoid this tourist trap like the proverbial plague. Shops filled with junk made overseas and restaurants overflowing with patrons who do not mind paying exorbitant prices for less than mediocre food. The streets are filled with smokers and they...

Tombstone seems like it was in the 1800's. Good restaurants in the original buildings. Interesting shops along the street

All it takes is a little knowledge of what went on here for Tombstone's decade or so of fame and you can just fit yourself right into the 1880's. Or just enjoy the sights, shopping and dining. Sure, it has all been commercialized, but it's been done in a nice way and you can take as much away from here... More

The main tourist area blocked off for gun fight re-enactments and easy street crossing is only a couple of blocks long and manageable for people with walking challenges - lots of benches along the way. Even bowls of water set out in front of some shops for the four-legged tourist.We shopped at Russel's Roadrunner for the best hat selection but... More

I was amazed at how it looked better than I had imagined. The town is just like it was in the old days. Well except the road is paved. But just enough to drive down. It doesn't really spoil the beauty. Lots of shopping and many places to eat. Put this place on your bucket list. You won't be sorry.

Allen street is a great place to hang out and just inhale that whole Wild West-feeling. As Tombstone had some major fires through the years most buildings are not originals, but they still offer a great background for experiencing this lovely town. There are even retired people dressing up like cowboys and just wandering about. It's not a big street,... More

In Tombstone, AZ --- this is such a famous street. You'll see it right away. Park your car and talk a nice walk back into time...Allen Street. It's the real deal. History right there. I'm not sure if Doc Holiday's house is on Allen Street, if not, it is very near there.
