Tombstone, Arizona. It sounds spooky, right? It's not! I had the chance to visit the town with my friends Raven and Cody while I was in Arizona. The town is pretty small- the main thing you do is walk up and down a street with lots of little shops. Raven was joking that it's pretty puny compared to New York. She was right, but it was still fun!
Cody's family likes to eat a saloon called Big Nose Kate's, so we went there. The three of us kids stood on the piano for a photo. Please excuse the naked lady!!
Raven and I had fun climbing on the hitching posts outside the restaurant. The main street has a dirt road, which makes it feel old timey. Fun!
Here's Raven with some cigar store statues. We definitely learned that Tombstone, in its heyday, was not a good place for kids. It was full of saloons, cowboys, and dancing ladies. There were even gunfights. Yikes!
Still, Tombstone is a pretty fun place to visit. There are stagecoach rides and you can have your family's photo taken in cowboy and saloon girl clothes. The best part is the old fashioned candy!
Have you ever been to a place like Tombstone? What did you do?
