This historic town is definitely a tourist trap. The reenactment of the gunfight at the OK Corral used to be free, but now families have to pay $10/person to see the show.
That being said, the show is pretty fun, although my four-year-old was probably too young to understand that it wasn't real. My older girls liked the show and loved walking the streets of Tombstone while pretending they were part of the old west.
Prepare to have your kids beg for lots of old-time souvenirs.
Tombstone is a little tourist trap in southeastern AZ but it's worth the trip. The town has the Old West feel, complete with saloons and some of the original restaurants. It's not exactly a kid-friendly restaurant, but we enjoyed having lunch at the Crystal Palace. The reenactment at the OK Corral is great for older kids but the gun shots can be a bit startling for the younger crowd. There's a "haunted" Tombstone attraction that you can walk through (my 9 and 10 yo boys enjoyed it) for a small fee.
While in the area, be sure to check out Bisbee. It's an artsy mountain town not far from Tombstone. There are some great shops and restaurants (Screaming Banshee Pizza, Bisbee Breakfast Club, etc.) and it's home of the Queen Mine tour. Parking can be difficult at times as this town is literally built into the mountains.
Another local spot to check out is the Ramsey Canyon Preserve in nearby Sierra Vista. It's free for kids under 16 and always free the first Saturday of each month. There are some great hiking trails, historic cabins, and water (in the desert!) that attracts many species of birds and other wildlife. Lots of fun if your kids enjoy the outdoors! It's pretty accessible- moderate grade and wide trail suitable for strollers.
As far as town mottos go "The town too tough to die" is pretty rockin'! This small town is located within a short drive of Tucson, AZ. It is the site of the legendary shoot-out at the O.K. Corral that has inspired many a movie and television show. The town itself has been preserved to capture the feeling of the Wild, Wild West. It is fun to walk around, eat and shop. There is a live action show that depicts the showdown between the Earp brothers (and Doc Holliday) and the Clantons. If you are visiting the area, this is a fun way to kill a few hours (pun definitely intended).
