Tombstone AZ

Years ago, when it was first founded, Tombstone was a silver-mining town that was not known to many. That was until the O.K. Corral gunfight that made Tombstone such a popular town. Today, when you visit Tombstone, the echoes of the gun fires can still be heard from re-enactments of that memorable time. Proud of its history, Tombstone is still an Old West town despite the fact that it isn’t nearly as dangerous and wild as it once was.

Visitors to the town will find much more to do and see with history around every corner typically presented in family-friendly, engaging ways. Whether you visit a museum or a live performance, you’ll feel as though you are truly in Tombstone’s past.

The history doesn’t stop there, though, as it is reflected in Tombstone’s lodging as well. There are numerous inns that were built in the 19th Century with unique, vintage furnishings. There’s even a few local RV parks that allow visitors to experience the outdoors of Tombstone and what the landscape has to offer.

There are also plenty of eateries, but they aren’t modern restaurants. Instead, you will walk into the real draw: saloons. They aren’t nearly as wild and unruly as they were back in the day, but they don’t lack history.
Offering a unique spin on things, Tombstone is the perfect place for an Old West-themed wedding or other special events.

When you choose to visit Tombstone, there’s no shortage of things to do. If you need a unique vacation and want to make certain that you won’t be stuck in your hotel your bored, Tombstone is the perfect destination.
