Town Too Tough to Die

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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Fort Bowie National Historic Site, Tombstone Trolley Tour, The Tombstone Epitaph, and other attractions. Kick off your visit on the 4th (Tue): examine the collection at Gunfighter Hall of Fame, steep yourself in history at The Tombstone Epitaph, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Fort Bowie National Historic Site, and finally get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

Houston

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Buffalo Bayou Park and Glenwood Cemetery. Museum-lovers will appreciate Buffalo Soldiers National Museum and Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, take an in-depth tour of The Heritage Society, learn about all things military at Houston Maritime Museum, and take a stroll through Historic Downtown Hico.
