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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at O.K. Corral and Arizona Hops and Vines. Take a break from the city and head to Kartchner Caverns State Park and Coronado National Memorial. Explore Tombstone's surroundings by going to Elgin (Sonoita Vineyards, Callaghan Vineyards, &more) and Sonoita (Dos Cabezas WineWorks & Rune Wines). And it doesn't end there: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Old Bisbee Brewing Company, explore the different monuments and memorials at Boothilll Graveyard, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.
