Tombstone brings any study of the American west to life. Wonderful historic monuments, townspeople dressed in old west costume, assistance located throughout the town eager to share Tombstone's history with anyone willing to listen. The bars and saloons have been refurbished to look as they did during Wyatt Earp's time, and the food and drinks they serve are delicious. History truly comes to life and becomes fun and exciting for any homeschool child as well as their parents. I highly recommend this wonderful field trip anytime. The weather is beautiful almost year round.

This is a great historical place of the west.
If you get a chance to see it before it closes. They have all kinds of old west stuff there and it is just a very pretty setting in front of the court house under the rose bush tree. My last visit there was 11 years ago.
It is sad that this is one of the parks that will be closing March 29, 2010.

Tombstone is an interesting place in history. It has been kept just as it was when Wyatt Earp lived there. The old theater is very interesting to go into. It is not as large as one would think it would be. There is an interesting bar/restaurant that has a cave an tunnel under it that an old gold miner dug. It is fascinating to see. You can also go to where the gun fight happened and go to the grave yard where Les Moore was buried!

We brought our son to Tombstone when he was going through his cowboy phase, and he loved it! Our first stop was Boothill Cemetery, and we got a booklet that talked about all of the people who were buried there.

Next, we went into town and loved that there were still wood sidewalks (my son loved the sound they made when he walked on them with his cowboy boots. :) We took one of the stagecoach tours, and visited the Birdcage Theatre (it's tiny inside!) and the OK corral.
