  • There is NO Entry Fee to the town of Tombstone itself - because it's an actual community with regular residents that live here. Yes, some have even wondered if the town of Tombstone is fictional! But no - NO ENTRY FEE, it's a town with quite a bit of real living history!
  • Google Tombstone & you may see a Theme Park listing! Well, there's a theme activity park here (purchase tickets for activities) - but that's not the whole of Tombstone, the authentic, historic town.  
  • Tombstone doesn't have a closing time, per-se! Many shops do end their day about 5 p.m. Most places to eat stay open later. Tombstone at Twilight on one Saturday each month, with evening hours, events & fun.
  • What is there to do? Lots! Something for all - family style, kids, adults, history buffs, shoppers, learners, festival-goers, outdoors enthusiasts, etc., etc.!
  • Is there anything else nearby to do? There sure is! A lot more adventures and historical areas are quite close.
  • The streets of downtown are laid out in a grid. Allen Street is the "main street" with the numbered streets in between. Most places to visit are between Third and Sixth Streets. The outside blocks that parallel Allen with sites to check are Toughnut Street and Fremont Street.
  • Pick up maps at many shops along Allen. Shop-keepers, bartenders, wait-staff, most locals will be glad to point out anything or answer questions. That's the best tip we have for your on-the-fly local need-to-know info.
