  • 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...  read 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! 
  • Very quick stop that you can drive up to. Only took 15 minutes to walk around learn some history and take a few pictures. Look out for tour bus. Not a great place to park at when a tour bus is trying ...  read more »
  • 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 $5.00. Very much worth the pictures, and the time.
  • This place was interesting a historic site. One thing that I wish would have been an option was to have a tour guide with some stories about some of the Graves. You do get a pamphlet that talks a bit about some of the Graves and who is buried there but a whole lot of info. Its free to walk the cemetery but they do also accept donations
  • This is a great place to visit. Read the head makers. Some of them are delightful.
  • Warning: you won't think this place is as cool as it is unless you've got some familiarity with its the town's history or at least have seen the most recent Tombstone movie. If you're up to speed on your history, this place is a must see. Don't be a cheapskate, donate the 3$ to help these folks out in preserving this amazing location.
  • My husband and I were staying in Tombstone and decided to go to Boothill before we drove back to Gilbert where we were staying with our cousins. I lost my sweater near one of the tombstones.It belonged to my mother who has passed and it was a sentimental . I was so upset because we had to back at Gilbert at 6PM and it was going on 3:30. I left my info to the sweet blonde haired girl at the reception area and she called me back to tell me she had found it. I was willing to pay postage as I know it is hard to upkeep a historic site. I received my sweater today and the cemetery paid my postage. Thank you so much. I loved the cemetery and Tombstone and we will definitely be coming back. God bless your staff at Boothill Cemetery. They are a treasure.
