Tombstone, Arizona, is a historic western town known for its legendary gunfights, mining history, and interesting characters. The town, founded in 1879, quickly became a center of silver mining and attracted thousands of prospectors and entrepreneurs looking to strike it rich.
Today, Tombstone is a popular tourist destination offering a glimpse into the Old West. You will find historic buildings, reenactments of famous gunfights, and museums showcasing the town's rich history.
I know about Tombstone through watching western movies with my dad. So when Tony added the “Town too tough to Die” to our State Buckletlist Book, I was ecstatic. This podcast episode discusses things to do in Tombstone, Arizona, with kids.
