We've passed through Tombstone, AZ three times before on the main highway and never stopped to see the sights. Actually, I have to amend that. Craig's driven through a lot more times than I have, and he's been up and down Front Street a few times, so he's always vetoed getting out of the car when we're headed to Bisbee.
And you ask, why would we even pull over in a tourist trap like Tombstone? I noticed Casa Paloma had Mexican imports and thought it might be the Jackalope of Tombstone, so we looked for a parking place. Unfortunately, the Cerrado never switched to Abierto.
Here's Front Street in Tombstone. It's paved! Craig has the explanation since he actually dealt with some of these people when the street was dirt. The dust when it was still authentic was horrendous, so they paved it.
The town is full of fake outlaws hanging about hoping to have their photos taken with the kiddies. We also saw a lot of characters in this part of Arizona who were groomed like Tombstone characters, but decided the tourist trap couldn't employ that many people!
The extras stroll the streets in their spurs and Old West getups.
In order to actually see the O.K. Corral, you have to pay the big bucks. Craig said it's not much, so we decided to skip it. Here's the historical link in case you missed one of the many movies.
We were hungry, but decided the O.K. Cafe might be a tourist trap with bad food.
