Tombstone, Arizona

Today we visited Tombstone-"A Town Too Tough to Die"!It claims to be Arizona's most renowned mining old mining camps.
Truly a Historical American Landmark, Tombstone is America's best example of our 1880 western heritage, which is well preserved with original 1880's buildings and artifacts featured in numerous museums.
Austin showing you how cool this place is.
Tourism is the primary industry in Tombstone, enjoying over 400,000 visitors each year. With its colorful past and present, Tombstone's tourism industry is likely to be thriving well into the future.
Several of the saloons in town offer live music on weekends, and most can accommodate dancing.
There are a number of gunfight shows in town, stagecoach and wagon tours, and a city park.

There are a bunch of little shops here too. Nathan and I finally bought cowboy hats. I know, I've been rambling on about the hats since we hit Texas. We bought the kids their hats and thought we didn't need any, especially since I just use Auburn's when I want one. Clearly we did need our own though, so what better place to get them than here.And last, but not least-the O.K. Corral. This is the world's most famous gunfight site and is where Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Virgil and Morgan Earp fought the Clantons and McLaurey's on October 26, 1881.Living the life in hot and sunny Arizona!
