Tombstone

Getting Here and Around

Start your tour of this tiny town and pick up a free map at the visitor center. As you drive into Tombstone on U.S. 80, historic Allen Street parallels the highway one block west. The visitor center sits in the middle, on the corner of Allen and 4th Street. Park along any side street or at one of the free lots on 6th Street. There's a self-guided walking tour, but the best way to get the lay of the land is to take the 15-minute stagecoach ride ($10, $5 for kids) around downtown. Drivers, dressed in cowboy attire, relate a condensed version of Tombstone's notorious past. You'll also pass the Tombstone Courthouse and travel down Toughnut Street, once called Rotten Row—because of the lawyers who lived there.
