People arrive here in Tombstone, and often ask similar questions. We answer some FAQs here - right off the bat!

  • NO Entry Fee to the town of Tombstone itself - it's an actual community with residents. But it's a town with quite a bit of real living history! 
  • NO Town Closing Time - per-se! BUT - Many shops end their day about 5 pm. On Special Events days some may stay open later. Most Places To Eat are open later.
  • Google "Tombstone" & see a Theme Park listing? Well, there's a theme activity park here (purchase tickets for activities - lots of kid friendly stuff in there!) - but that's not the whole of Tombstone, the authentic, historic town. 
  • What's there to do? Lots! For everyone - family style, kids, adults, history buffs, shoppers, learners, festival-goers, outdoors enthusiasts, etc., etc.! Check tips about the Best Time & Top Must-See/Do - Here>
  • Many shops, restaurants & places to stay are pet-friendly. Check with the staff.
  • Look for Directional Arrow Signs on corners - they point out the town Attractions and Tours.
  • Cell/WiFi? T-Mobile & Verizon only will work here. No WiFi provision in town businesses - except possibly for your Hotel!
  • Pick up a Map at many shops along Allen. Shop-keepers, bartenders, wait-staff, most locals will be glad to point out anything or answer questions.
  • Downtown streets are laid out in a grid. Allen Street is the "main street" with numbered streets between. Most places to visit are between 3rd & 6th Streets. The outer blocks that parallel Allen with places to check are Toughnut Street & Fremont Street.
  • Anything else nearby to do? Sure is! Lots more adventures and historical areas are quite close. Whether you're here for the day, a weekend, or an extended trip!
  • Special events are scheduled during many months of the year. None, though in November, December or January. But... there are Holiday events scheduled during that season - for more details see our Events Page.

We have the 1st book on Kindle - even though the rating was kind-of demoted by 1 person, we think it's not a bad guide. We also have a couple of her other books & she researches her writings pretty well. If you want to do your own tour through Tombstone AZ - it's helpful enough. I have books I like by the other author. The last book I've read a portion - is quite interesting, helpful local insider preview, well done.
