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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Tombstone Epitaph and Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Arizona Hops and Vines and Old Bisbee Brewing Company.

There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Rose Tree Museum, get engrossed in the history at Tombstone's Historama, get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour, and stop by Arlene's S.W. Silver & Gold.
