Overview

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.

Like stepping into the 1880's. The people all over Tombstone are absoultely the salt of the earth. They make you feel welcome. They are good listeners, kind, helpful and treat you like old friends. NO rush, "gimme the cash" attitudes. They all became dear friends...More

This was our third visit to Tombstone. The main street is still pretty much the same but more commercialized with some of the new stores.

Nothing like walking on the streets of Tombstone where Earp's and the Clantons once walked. Some of the buildings look like the original places from the old days. Great for anyone who loves western and the kids will love it, even us older big kids!

We visited Tombstone and walked down Allen Street where some of the most notable characters in western history walked. It was great to see the old west town preserved and like it was in the 1800's. Lots of little tourist trap stores along the street...More

All along Allen Street are plaques with information on historical sites in front of them. Sit awhile on the many benches and reflect on the history of the many people that have lived and died here. You can meet people from all over the world...More

Tombstone is has 3 streets with Allen being the middle. Lots to see and quite interesting on all sides. Go day or night, the do have a visitors office in this area that has brochures, worth stopping in to see.

Yes... Allen Street is stroller friendly. A stroller certainly can be rolled on the wooden boardwalks. And Allen Street itself is stroller friendly.
