Tombstone - The Town Too Tough To Die

It was a rainy day on Labor Day and we wanted to actually take a day off so we took a drive over to Tombstone. There weren't as many tourists as normal because of the weather but there were still quite a few people wandering about.



 There are at least three different outfits offering wagon/stagecoach tours.










These guys said their stagecoach was actually from the late 1800s.










I love the historic old buildings! :)




















A lot of the original buildings on Allen Street were lost to fires over the years and have been rebuilt.


















The interior of the Crystal Palace is really neat! They have a reproduction of the original bar that they brought in that is very ornate and probably 30 feet long!





The Bird Cage Theatre is down on the east end of Allen Street and is one of the few original buildings remaining.







Can't forget the O.K. Corral! They have it all walled in and you have to pay to go inside!!



















This is my favorite place to go in Tombstone! They have the CUTEST clothes, I got a pair of overalls with embroidery on the bib and the pant cuffs this time! :)





We had to get a couple of Sarsparillas for the ride home. The guy told us "Now ya'll drink responsibly, ya' hear!"







They were REALLY good and are now a "must have" whenever we take a drive over to Tombstone!








Check out the cute picture on the bottle cap! :)

We always enjoy taking a drive over to Tombstone and wandering around looking at the "tourists!" :)

I love your touristy old west town. Reminds me a bit of Virginia City in Nevada where I'm from and also the Gold Country in California too! Thanks for the trip down memory lane... I miss the old West!!!

My boys will love this post - they like to hear about Tombstone. I think it would be fun to visit the Shady Lady!

Deb,
I have visited your old stomping grounds and except for the lack of piney trees, it does have a similar feel! :)

Annie,
Hope you get a chance to bring Lil Sassy Shasta down this direction sometime soon!

Amy,
Your boys would definitely enjoy Tombstone! They even do a "Ghost Tour" at night! :)

I can't believe it! I finally got to leave a comment on your blog! I have tried several times to leave a comment... today, though, google gave me an error code. (I never got an error code before.) So I looked up that code and found out that other people have had the same problem and they solved it by logging completely out of their own blog and then logging back in through www.blogger.com, instead of through their blog. And also delete all cookies. THEN come to blog they want to comment on, and THEN they could leave a comment. So that's what I did. I don't know why I have to do that to be able to comment on your blog but at least now I know what to do to be able to leave a comment!

homegrown countrygirl,
Hey, thanks for the tip on leaving comments! There are a couple of sites I have been unable to leave a comment on and I'm going to give this a try! The internet is a total mystery sometimes! LOL!!
