Although a bit hokey, the street has some charm as an old Wild West town. There are period actors, stage coaches, horses, etc. Lots of smokers up and down this street, which makes me sick. I realize that smoking would have been prevalent in 1880’s,...More

Go to Bisbee instead. Tombstone is a rip off, and every place charges $1 to use your credit card. You can’t even see the OK Corral without paying $10. The history is great there but it’ll cost you to see anything, and you don’t know...More

The main part of any visit to Tombstone and worth the trip. There's many old buildings and good shops to visit. The prices can be all over so don't buy before checking a few shops. The street performers were good as well.

So much potential. Allen Street, the main street in an 'old west' town Tombstone, has so much potential to offer entertainment and a real old west experience. Unfortunately, it seems like potential is all it really has to offer as it not only doesn't live...More

The place seemed deserted yet we had a tough time finding parking. The buildings are nice to look at. There is signage throughout the block of events that happened at that particular spot. We entered about 5 shops and most of them had few items,...More

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

Chinatown to Journal Square Thursday morning (6 Replies)
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. Any suggestions as to the best way to travel? Is it possible...More

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.
