  • After wandering up the hill we found Boot Hill, complete with five pairs of boots. I guess I'm comparing it to the one in Tombstone, AZ which is very interesting. This one mainly has a nice view of th...  more »
  • Spent time checking out the area and feeling the old west! Enjoyed a few hours in shops and town. Visited in late September so not everything open, but enjoyed the flavor of the town. Shop owners were...  more »
  • A totally western history experience, along with the various sights, and museums in both Virginia City and Nevada City. Go on your own or take in the tour, both are great!

  • The lady at the front desk greeted us and was very pleasant. We bought the $3 booklet which told us about the people buried in the graveyard. A map would have been better but we spent time just meandering around and matching the booklet to the gravestones. Great piece of history!
  • I am usually weirded out by cemeteries, especially ones that are randomly in the middle of the desert, but this place was actually really interesting to walk through and visit. But, like I had to remind a mother w/two young and unruly kids, be respectful and remember it is still a cemetery and those are actual graves you are walking on. I did the full cemetery loop and not only did I get to see some really punny and funny tombstones, I also saw some cool desert wildlife as well. Definitely worth a stop to peruse the different headstones and it was especially interesting to see all the different and Darwinian ways people died in the desert at the turn of the last century...
  • I loved this place. It was just enough tourist trap, and historic truth to give me the feeling of really being there in Tombstone when the cemetery was used to bury some of the most famous characters of the Western era. There is a fee, but it is almost nominal. I believe it was $5.00. Very much worth the pictures, and the time.
  • This place was interesting a historic site. One thing that I wish would have been an option was to have a tour guide with some stories about some of the Graves. You do get a pamphlet that talks a bit about some of the Graves and who is buried there but a whole lot of info. Its free to walk the cemetery but they do also accept donations
  • Another great little gift shop right beside Boot Hill. The cemetery was interesting with some humourous grave markers.
