Description:

Allen Street is the main business and Historic District/National Registry of Historic Places of the famous Old West town of Tombstone, Arizona. It's full of history having once been the main thoroughfare of Tombstone during the boomtown days, so has certainly seen plenty of sights in its time.

Allen Street became famous for being at the heart of the action during the time of the Old West. It saw plenty of gunfights in its day, and continues to be the primary tourist destination for tourists and Tombstone visitors. Today, it attracts people from all over who are looking for the excitement and enchantment of the Wild West days.

The first stop on any trip to Allen Street should be the Tombstone Visitor and Information Center, where people can pick up a map of the area along with all the information that they need to plan their day. After that, they can head on down the Street to see what they come across.

Allen Street is home to plenty of attractions, one of the most notable being the O.K. Corral. The O.K. Corral is the site of the most famous gunfight of the Old West which took place on October 26, 1881. It has daily re-enactments of the fight and is also home to the Historama, a multimedia performance showcasing Tombstone's long and varied history.

After that there's plenty to choose from, including the Tombstone Ghosts and Legends Tour, guaranteed to give everyone a chill, or the Birdcage Theatre. Visitors can ride along the dusty road on the Tucson Stage Line or Butterfield Stage Coach, and can enjoy travelling as it once was with the road being closed to all other traffic.

There are lots of options in terms of food and drink as well including the Crystal Palace Saloon and Big Nose Kate's, and there are countless other souvenir and gift shops along the Street for visitors to find a memento of the day. And, the Street is an attraction in its own right, with western re-enactments often being performed by the Six Gun City Players.

Allen Street is open daily and entry to the road itself is free, however admission fees and opening times are sure to vary with each individual attraction. Be sure to check with the attraction first for their terms and conditions, and it's worth checking with the visitor center if you want to know when any staged gunfights and the like will be taking place.

A trip to Allen Street really gives people a chance to see what life was once like in the Old West. With plenty of attractions to choose from, as well as re-enactments of famous showdowns, visitors will truly get a glimpse into the history of the time. And, with everything so beautifully preserved it really feels like you're back in the days of the Wild West, which will appeal to history fans and general tourists alike. Allen Street is a must-see for any visit to Tombstone.

Visited Allen street and saw all its beauty and shops. Loved it all. Restaurants were all good. Loved all the Cowboys on the streets of Tombstone. If you ever want to see what it was like back then, just travel down Allen street.

Everything you want to see is in the various stores. There are restaurants, ice creme stores, clothes, stores, and theaters and it is only about five blocks long. There are also stagecoach rides leaving from this street

First time in the town and here to learn about history and to walk in the foot steps of the big people. Had a ice cream and had a nice sit down doing some people watching. The weather as coming up and a good time for a photo.

We didn't do much shopping, but still interesting walk along the street. We did go into some of the saloons for a brief look.

If you've ever watched a western, you'll feel like a part of history. There are many places on both sides of the street, some reasonable souvenirs & places to eat or snack. It's well preserved & inviting.

Such a fun & cool little town!! They really make you feel like you're back in time. And seeing the Earp Brothers & Doc Holliday walk down the street will dang near give you chills. All the shops are pretty much the same, but it's fun to browse. They have lots of awesome restaurants too with an awesome atmosphere. On... More
