Tombstone, The Town Too Tough to Die

This is a place where you feel like you are either on a movie set or like a time stopped still in 19th century. Of course this is only in the historic district, which is most of the town, but it feels cool!

Tombstone is the famous town where Wyatt Earp and his brothers, Doc Holiday, Johnny Ringo and the Clanton gang had their shoot out at the OK Corral. There is many movies made about this gunfight. This is the most authentic Western Town left in the United States. Everything is preserved as much as possible from those days, from the Boothill cemetery to the OK Corral.

The shops along the streets are done in cowboy style and even the shop keepers dress the part, and many of the locals are dressed in the same manner.

Everybody on the streets are wearing guns and it was interesting to see the hostess at the restaurant who was making bullets in between customers.

The stores are full of historical clothing, hats and boots. If you want to find something western you can find it here!

If you go there I would also recommend to visit a small museum of Victorian clothing, which is located right behind the main street, close to the Court building. Everything is very old and real here!

We had a wonderful time at Tombstone. I hope we will do this again soon!

So, back to map… Our next destination ?????? See you next time soon :)
