We stopped In Tombstone Arizona on the way back from Los Cruces New Mexico. My wife and I had both finished reading a couple of books about Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the OK Corral.

So we decided to make the detour and go see it

First the Bad News, while the parking is free, any attraction you might want to see charges admission

The Ghost town part of town reminded me to much “Knott’s Berry Farm” and or Calico. I would have preferred a deserted set of buildings and a walking tour

Again I sort of figured it was a tourist place so was not expecting too much

The road in / out of town is heavily patrolled so watch your speed

The Good News 

We ate at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon”  the food was quite good , the service was great , the entertainment  was pretty good, and was a neat place to eat and let one’s imagination take over and be there with Doc Holiday, and the others.

My wife and split a brisket Sandwich and a bowl of chili and each had a “Doc Holiday “to drink (Mr. Pub) but hey indulge me

They had a gentleman doing some street dancing for tips that while not western was rather interesting to watch

A lot of the residents are dressed in period clothing which gives the place that western look.

My wife bought some earrings at a Native American store as souvenirs.

Tombstone is a neat place to stop and visit , check off the bucket list, eat at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” and enjoy a couple of hours to break up that LONG I -10 drive BUT I do not foresee it has my favorite destination site yet
