Day trip to Tombstone Arizona

Thursday, July 31, 2014
Tombstone is a tourist city but it was more enjoyable than I thought it would be. I could have easily spent an entire day here leisurely learning about the history of the town, the mining, and it's people. Tombstone is perhaps the most famous Western town due to the people who lived there, came there to make their fortune, or to take that fortune from them. Like so many other places in the Old West with violent histories, Tombstone is said to be one of the most haunted in Arizona. 

We stopped  to Tombstone to check out some stores. We got a shirt made by red dirt shirt and  a little potted cactus.  Both fun souvenirs to bring home.  It was cool walking along the boardwalk, looking around in the stores, and seeing the cowboy people have their gunfight and driving around with their horse and buggies. We wish we could have stayed longer when we visited. The entire town silently screams of haunted Old West ghosts & spirits. You can practically feel the living essence of history and energy around every turn.

Tombstone is in southeastern Arizona about 65 miles southeast of Tucson. It is 23 miles south of I-10.

The town of Tombstone. Apparently the whole downtown is haunted by screams, cries, etc. Possibly a town with more than its share of domestic disturbances but ghosts?
The "town too tough to die" is filled with history even in its dust.
Authentic 1800 stagecoach tour
History preserved by dedicated residents

There are yet more haunting in Tombstone, such as a ghost who allegedly haunts Room 119 at this old Tombstone Hotel. Sometime in the past, a man evidently hanged himself in the room, and now, guests report hearing voices and witnesses objects moving in the room.

Well made 100% pre-washed cotton shirts with memorable artwork from Tombstone Arizona. The Red Dirt dye will fade. So, be sure to wash it in cold water several times before washing with like colors.
The dirt is a volcanic by product found all over the Hawaii islands and Southwest United States.

  2. Looking at your pictures and reading your experience, I feel like I am watching a movie hehehe. Thanks for sharing sis.

  3. Scary. If I would visit there, I'd do it in the daytime. No haunted houses for me.

  4. i love it when towns like that are well preserved, nice to take a walk always with history, makes us feel how it was like then

  5. Yikes! Like Aio Kona, I would only visit this in the daytime because I'm a big coward. LOL.

  6. Wow! Back to the old Wild, Wild, West lang ang peg. Wish I can visit this place.

  7. Wow! I would love to visit that place, too! Super interesting naman ng name. I bet it is so full of historical stories...

  8. I'd love to read about the history of this place and to look at the photos, but I wouldn't have the guts to go there because I'm afraid of ghosts. Lol!

  9. It's nice that they were able to preserve that culture of Arizona. A great palce to bring the whole family for some interesting fun and history.

  10. I've never been into this state but seems like Arizona has a nice place to visit since you'll be able to witness those old era things
