Town Too Tough to Die
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. The town eventually slipped into total lawlessness, which culminated in the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Though it only lasted about 30 seconds, this brief episode remains Tombstone's main claim to fame. Today, this tiny town of just over 1,000 residents survives largely on its lively tourism sector, which centers on daily reenactments of the famous shootout. The walkable historic district contains most of Tombstone's major attractions, including an authentic saloon and many souvenir shops.
