Create an itinerary including O.K. Corral
The O.K. Corral (Old Kindersley) was a livery and horse corral from 1879 to about 1888 in the mining boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona Territory, in the southwestern United States near the border with Mexico.

Despite its association with the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, the historic gunfight did not take place within or next to the corral on Allen Street, but in a narrow lot on Fremont Street, six doors west of the rear entrance to the corral. The lot was between Harwood's home and C. S. Fly's 12-room boarding house and photography studio.
The 1957 film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral made the shootout famous and the public was incorrectly led to believe it was the actual location of the altercation. Despite the historical inaccuracy, the corral is marketed as the location of the shootout, and visitors can pay to see a re-enactment of the gunfight. The corral is now part of the Tombstone Historic District.

  • There was a lot of action and the actors were really funny at times. The show was very informative and talked about a lot we didn't know. A must see!

  • Whole Lotta good clean fun.. Walk around, get something to eat, watch some shows.. Do some shopping.. Lotta of cool shops.. Ride in a stage coach.. Fun for all ages.. Lots to do.. Cool Old Town..
  • Yes, it is touristy, but it is fun and serves the purpose. The staff was fine, the actors did a great job. Overall, great way to learn about an American West during the "cowboy" days. Remember it is an event which has been made into an iconic piece of the American West, so reality never quite will get to the myth of the event. But overall fun and entertaining for all ages!
  • This was so much fun! Well worth the $10. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We weren't sure what to expect and had a great time at the gunfight. My favorite part was the Vincent Price narrated Historama. A little bit of Americana. After seeing the Tombstone Courthouse, this brought the history of Tombstone to life. Thanks for a great visit!
  • Why would anyone come to Tombstone and not watch this 'show'? It's a well done reenactment along with some corny humor and audience participation. From what I've read, it's pretty spot-on with actual events. Bonus - you get to tour some otherwise inaccessible areas and see some really cool stuff. Double bonus - a free copy of the October 26, 1881 Tombstone Epitaph (the local newspaper.) Contained therein you'll read trial transcripts including witness statements and 'the verdict'.
  • A fun show with some clever lines. Deliberately campy and lots of laughs. The bad guys are the best. The Sam Elliot- like character who played Virgil's a bit wooden, but overall quite entertaining for all ages. Our party ranges from age 2 to 70 and we all enjoyed it. The Vincent Price-narrated diorama/ movie was cleverly done. See pic of the instructions you are given. Gift shop was touristy but our grands enjoyed getting a pop gun or two.
