Very dynamic Old West town, looks authentic to the time. Many characters dressed in period clothing, loads of food choices and no cars. Bring the entire family and explore, historic signs will give you insight or, pay for a tour. Great fun.

So authentic! Loved walking the streets knowing that the Earp brothers, actually walked in the same spots. See the stage coach going by and people in costume, were all just amazing to me. You could almost feel the old west around you.

Tombstone is a fascinating place anytime. Like a time warp the locals still live a Wild West life. Costumes, nope, just everyday garb for the residents who you will find everywhere around town and ever so friendly. A good majority of the action happens on...More

Tombstone is out of the way for every single traveler. You cannot say you just dropped by, as you have to exit the I-10 and drive some 20 mi on a road leading to Tombstone and further - to nowhere. Therefore I cannot understand people...More

Just shops offering standard southwest goods intermixed with old west period schlock. Assorted eateries and bars. It's a "fake believe" environment some may enjoy for entertainment, or the pleasure of hearing their boot heels resonate on the wooden sidewalks. Okay for sitting on a bench...More

This is the actual Allen Street in Tombstone, Arizona, folks. The buildings are real, and original. The sidewalks are wooden, so wear your cowboy boots if you like the sound they make on a wooden side walk. It's fun to pretend, isn't it? Oh--and the...More

Tombstone is mostly a tourist trap with many, many ways to take your money - souvenir shops, trolley or stagecoach tours, and several staged gunfights. We strolled the main streets for an hour or so and were ready to leave. It did look like an...More

Yes... Allen Street is stroller friendly. A stroller certainly can be rolled on the wooden boardwalks. And Allen Street itself is stroller friendly.

Hello: my mother and I are taking one of the dreaded Chinatown buses to New York on Thursday. We are staying in Jersey City and looking for the easiest way to commute from Allen Street in Chinatown over to the Journal Square area of Jersey City. If it were simply myself I would walk down Canal to the World Trade Center path station and take the path across. However I am with my 65-year-old mother, and we both have suitcases as well.

Depending on exactly where on Allen St you'll be, the F train up to the 23rd St station then the Path seems to be the easiest to me. The transfers within stations are usually easy, just across the platform or up some stairs and over. But I'm not sure of the situation at the 23rd St station. Total trip is 41 mins on a Thursday morning according to Google maps. Will you have pull-along suitcases? They're usually easy to drag around. It's only stairs you'll have to think about,
Bus Dropoff - Which location? (10 Replies)
Can someone familiar with the NYC area tell me which of these locations would be the best to get dropped off and picked back up at for 3 ladies who are coming on a Saturday to do some shopping in Chinatown and the main part of the city (TImes Square, etc. I guess!.) Is Chinatown within walking distance of the main shopping areas? Any help would be appreciated.

West 33rd is best for being in midtown. Its probably the bus area right next to Penn Station, where you have a choice of subway routes - or you can walk to Times Square/surrounding area if the weather is good - in about 10 minutes or less. Poppa - all of the other locations are pretty much Chinatown. Most Manhattanites would know them.
