Founded in 1877 as a mining camp, Tombstone became one of the most storied towns of the "Wild West." As one of the last frontier boomtowns in the United States, Tombstone prospered between 1880 and 1890, attracting cattle rustlers and outlaws.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Sat): look for gifts at Arlene's S.W. Silver & Gold, look for all kinds of wild species at San Pedro House, then take an in-depth tour of Tombstone's Historama, then get your game on at Old Tombstone Western Theme Park, and finally steep yourself in history at The Tombstone Epitaph.
