Founded in 1877 as a mining camp, Tombstone became one of the most storied towns of the "Wild West." As one of the last frontier boomtowns in the United States, Tombstone prospered between 1880 and 1890, attracting cattle rustlers and outlaws.
Take a break from the city and head to Kartchner Caverns State Park and Turquoise Valley Golf Course. Boothilll Graveyard and Our Lady of the Sierras - A Marian Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Tombstone side-trips: Willcox (Chiricahua National Monument, Coronado Vineyards, & more), Elgin (Callaghan Vineyards, Flying Leap Vineyards, & more) and Sonoita (Arizona Hops and Vines & Dos Cabezas WineWorks). The adventure continues: make a trip to Allen Street, learn about winemaking at Silver Strike Winery, take an in-depth tour of Tombstone's Historama, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Old Bisbee Brewing Company.
