[/QUOTE]Been their twice, and I think you are a little out there. Yes it is still a living town, and the people who work there live there, that's what makes it nice. They have pretty much left it as it was in the day, and Boot Hill is a real Cemetery. They do have some charges to see things because like you said it is not a movie set it is a living town. If they didn't make a little money it could very well be it would turn into a Ghost Town. Did you know that some people who live there, if they come into town wearing Cowboy attire, riding their own horses ect., their only pay is free drinks/food from some of the establishments. Any fees they charge are well worth the visit.
----------------------------------

I agree completely. I have been there twice and love the town and the atmosphere you find there.
Sure there are charges but nothing we felt that was extremely high.
Would go back for a third time if I get the chance.

Not sure how a family could afford to visit the sights since every venue has a charge. In my personal opinion is was way overhyped. We loved Boot Hill which was free and only asked for donations which we happily provided. Each to his own but to us Tombstone was just a big tourist trap.

We went to the courhouse museum and the OK Corral. Strolled the town and saw some "gunfights". Spent about 20 bucks all day. Worth it. Will do again!

There is a RV Park in Tombstone. It takes 3 or more days to see and experience everything in Tombstone without exhaustion as the streets roll up early. Wells Fargo RV Park. Tombstone Arizona Across the street from the RV park is an American Legion Post. Great place to get away from the tourist prices for food and drink.

Also recommend Karchner Caverns, a marvelous experience.

Stop enroute in W TX at Balmorrhea State Park. Nice sites. Largest spring fed swim pool in the World, I think. Kids can also observe a colony of bats take off around sunset.

Stayed at this park in Benson, AZ. Nice park and they have a free show every night in their own observatory. I think the kids would get a kick out of it. Not too far from Tombstone.

We are scheduled to stay here for 5 nights in September. The DW has a niece that lives in Benson. The DW had no intentions about seeing Tombstone until the show "Ghost Adventures" did a story about the "Birdcage Saloon".

There is also a museum at Fort Huachuca, in Sierra Vista. Ft. Huachuca was a Buffalo Solder post. It has been probably 30 years since I have been in the museum, so not too sure how big it is. There is also a historical cemetery that is still in use. Ft. Huachuca is not the home of Military Intelligence, so there my be some additional things to see. It is about 20 miles from Tombstone.

From Benson you can easily drive to Tombstone and also take in nearby Bisbee which is a very unique town built on a hillside. The mine tour is great in Bisbee. It's given by former miners. You don a yellow slicker, a yellow hard hat with a mining light and board the mine car which takes you on the tour - no walking. It's fun!

Unless the train is right there they will not bother us. We hear them all the time in our S&B and find the sound soothing.

Triangle T Guest Ranch

Triangle T Ranch is a nice little RV park very close to I-10 , various old hollywood actors have stayed there over the years. Filmed 3:10 to Yuma there. Nice owners/park, reasonable prices...plenty to explore on their property, nice horse rides for the family if you ride. Exit 318 We stayed there and enjoyed ourselves
