We spent most of the day on Allen Street and must say that it feels far more authentic than many of the tourist old west attractions we have visited and that includes Dodge.There are many quality stores to browse around and no hard sell by their owners. The saloon was a great place to pop in for lunch and a... More

So many adorable shops all done up in the way of the old west. You need at least one whole day just to browse through the abundance of merchandise offered. The wooden boardwalks lining the street add to the authentic feel. Love Tombstone.

My husband and I had a great time just watching all of the people in period clothing, the stagecoach rides, and looking at the historic buildings. Everyone was friendly! We didn't have time to watch the 'shootouts', but was a fun day.

Allen Street is the main drag in Tombstone. It's where a lot of the 1880's action happened, and is one block away from the famous Ok Corral gunfight. This is the busiest street in town. If you visit Tombstone, AZ, you'll be sure to find yourself walking down this street containing saloons, shops, and historical markers. Much of this street... More

What can I say. It is a street with lots of little stores. Just a heads up if there are no special events going on and you are not there to go to the bars, everything shuts down about 4 or 5 PM.

I absolutely loved Allen Street in Tombstone. People very often are dressed as bar girls or gunfighters to add to the atmosphere. Visit the Birdcage Theatre and OK Corral, or take a Stagecoach tour of the town. Of course the townspeople milk the tourism aspect, but who can blame them? Lots to see and do and be a part of...

Plan on spending the day, do a carriage ride, explore the stores, saloons, birdcage, graveyards. So much to so, would like to go back!

A highlight of our drive through the Southwest. From purely a photographer/visitor's perspective, this place was the real deal. In Tucson we visited Old Tucson where they filmed the old western movies on sets and sound stages. Tombstone has that same feel, except that it's a real town, and the people there don't feel like actors or employees. The people... More
