The town of Tombstone is best known for the events of Oct. 28, 1881. On that day, Wyatt Earp, his brothers and Doc Holliday gunned down three cowboys in what is remembered as the “Gunfight at the OK Corral.”
This town, once among the largest in Arizona, holds an important place in the state’s history, even if more for the mining history than the gunfight.
A fun way to start the day in Tombstone is with a stagecoach ride. The bumpy ride is an informative way to see the town. And, with a knowledgeable driver, it can provide a back story about the places that helped shape the town.
