1880 Historic Tombstone
70 miles from Tucson
This historic Western town is one of the most famous and glamorized mining towns in America. Prospector Ed Schieffelin was told he would only find his tombstone in the San Pedro Valley. He named his first silver claim Tombstone, and it later became the name of the town. The town is situated on a mesa at an elevation of 4,540 feet. While the area became notorious for saloons, gambling houses and the O.K. Corral shootout, in the 1880s Tombstone had become the most cultivated city in the West. Surviving the Great Depression and relocation of the County Seat to Bisbee, in the 1930s Tombstone became known as “The Town Too Tough To Die.” You an your leashed dog are welcome to take a step back in time and walk along the wooden sidewalks and dirt streets. Here is a side note about the town: dogs are not allowed inside the O.K. Corral shoot-out area. This historic town is a must visit when you go to Arizona!
