Tombstone Tours

Tombstone
The dusty streets of Tombstone, Arizona, are what Wild West movies are made of—quite literally. The historic mining town, now restored to its 1800s glory, has been the setting for numerous Hollywood flicks and is a tourism hotspot. Catch recreations of notorious gunfights, get a drink at a saloon, and stroll the wooden boardwalks.

The Basics
While the 1877 silver strike that inspired the rush to develop Tombstone is long gone, the “Town Too Tough to Die,” as some called it, did not disappear like the surrounding ghost towns. Instead, the town pulses with eclectic Wild West shops, costumed performers, reenactment shows, and more. Visit the iconic O.K. Coral, stroll through the Boot Hill cemetery, take a ghost tour at the Bird Cage Theatre, and learn more about the town’s legendary past on a guided walking tour. Alternatively, you can see Tombstone’s highlights on a historic trolley tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Fans of Wild West history and movies will enjoy the immersive experience in the streets of this iconic town. 
  • Allen Street—the main historic thoroughfare—is closed to cars, making it easy to navigate with a wheelchair or stroller.  
  • Get in the Western spirit by bringing cowboy attire or purchasing costumes at the local shops.
  • Book tickets in advance to catch a gunfight show; the popular ones sell out.

How to Get There
Tombstone, Arizona, is located about a 75-minute drive from Tucson. If driving, take I-10 East to AZ-80 East. Some shuttle services transport travelers from the Tucson International Airport to Tombstone. Tours that include round-trip transportation depart from the state’s capital, Phoenix.

When to Get There
Tombstone’s relatively mild weather makes it a popular year-round destination, with fall, winter, and spring being the most popular times to visit. Summer can get hot, with daytime temperatures peaking higher than 90°F (32°C). Most of the businesses in the historic district are open from midmorning until early evening, while restaurants and saloons stay open into the night.   

Where to Watch a Gunfight Reenactment Show
Gunfights made Tombstone infamous in Hollywood, so don’t miss the opportunity to catch one of the town’s frequent reenactment shoot-outs. You can see a recreation of the famous O.K. Corral showdown at the historic O.K. Corral’s Streets of Tombstone Theater. Or, head to the Old Tombstone Western Theme Park to see one of three daily gunfight shows.

Private Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission Day Trip

Private Tombstone Arizona and San Xavier Mission Day Trip

star-5
Travel back in time to one of the most famous Old West towns with a day on the streets of Tombstone. The home of the famous OK Corral lets you experience the lives of outlaws, businessmen, miners, and cattlemen who flocked to the area for a chance to strike it rich on the frontier. A ride straight from your hotel takes you out of the city for your visit to the historic town. While you're in Tombstone, pay a visit to the original gathering spots for outlaws and gunmen, like Big Nose Kate's Saloon and the Bird Cage Theatre, which earned a reputation as the wickedest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast. True to the reputation of the Wild West, gunfights and stand-offs were a regular occurrence, and many of their victims are buried at the infamous Boot Hill Cemetery—named for the men who died and were buried, with their boots still on. On your way back, visit the White Dove of the Desert; one of the Southwest's best-preserved missions at San Xavier del Bac.
