Attractions in Tombstone
Walk the Streets of the Historic Old West
Many of Tombstone's historic buildings are in an area bounded by Fremont, 6th Street, Toughnut and 3rd Streets- along Allen Street.
Some of Tombstone's popular places to visit include St. Paul's Episcopal Church, built in 1882 and the Crystal Palace Saloon, one of the most luxurious saloons in the West on Allen Street. The Tombstone Epitaph building, where the oldest continuously published paper in Arizona, still prints today.
Walk the town's famed Allen Street where many of the shops, saloons and restaurants stand in their original buildings from the 1880s. Spend the entire day browsing quaint stores with western memorabillia, Tombstone souveniers and true Western food. Virtually walk with streets of Tombstone.
Occassionally, gun fight demonstrations are performed along Allen Street, especially during Helldorado Days, the annual celebration of Tombstone's wild days. There are daily reenactments at the OK Corral on Alan Street.

by Gary L. Roberts (Author), an authority on western history, takes on John Henry Holliday, legendary gunman, drinker, gambler and dentist (hence "Doc"), best known for some adroit shooting at the OK Corral on October 26, 1881. This is part biography, part debunking of myths and part archive of accounts of the lives of Holliday and the Earp Brothers written from the time they were alive up to the present. Roberts is effective in evoking the influences that formed his subject's character. Born in Georgia in 1851, Holliday absorbed the manliness and rebelliousness instilled in young men of his prosperous class in antebellum Southern culture. Holliday also acquired expertise in drinking, whoring and gambling, as well as a taste for violence.Paperback: 544 pages. Purchase on Amazon: Doc Holliday: The Life and Legend.
