We did Tombstone about 20 years ago - and then again about 6 years ago. We also hit Bisbee the same time. Tombstone wasn't nearly as fun the 2nd time around and we enjoyed the quirkiness of Bisbee including all the parking on the hills. The Queen mine tour was still good when we were there. Not sure about now.

Well we did a canvern tour and Tombstone. Had a supper at Big Nose Kate’s. It was an enjoyable day.
Just got back to our camp at Patagonia.
Thinking about going to Nogales tomorrow. Some fellow campers here say they do. Park on this side and walk across. Any of you done that lately.?

Tombstone is pure tourist trap. Not a thing is original. Bisbee totally unique.

We did the mine thing last May. The guide was a long time employee of the company that owned the mine, it was the only job he ever had. He rose from grunt to upper management. He was a wealth of information with good patter on top of that.
The amount of money that they pulled out of that mine was staggering.

For those interested in southwestern military history, Fort Huachuca is nearby and was established in the mid-1870's to protect the border and provide security from Indian attacks. There are two museums on the base. One details the history of the US Army in the area and emphasizes the role of the Buffalo Soldiers (African American Cavalry) and the second is dedicated to Army Intelligence with an example of a German Enigma Code machine from WWII. We actually used a variant of that, the KL-7, when I was stationed there in 1969-70.

The museums are open and there is no charge for visiting but you will have probably have to go through a background check in order to get through the gates. The post cemetery is also worth walking through.

Both excellent> I got interested in the Buffalo soldiers a few years back. Interesting history and for gotten heroes. Tombstone has too much to see in a day and Big Nose Kate's had great food.
