  • Wow! The history here is awesome! To step back in time was surreal! I would love to visit again! The whole town of Tombstone AZ was simply like stepping back in time! We also went into Big Nose Kate's, The OK Coral, the Town Hall and was able to experience so much. We would definitely be back! Ps.. make sure you have lots of water! It's HOT there.. food is expensive there as well as most of the souvenirs.
  • I have been wanting to go there for many years. It was everything I wanted it to be and then some. The staff was wonderful and answered every question that was ask. Tombstone Arizona is a place where you will not have a boring minutes at all . I will be back one day.
