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.

We didn't know that this festival was going on and were amazed by all the people who were dressed up. Most were from around Tombstone. They loved posing for pictures. Almost everyone was dressed up

Great to get to see what the old west town would have looked like. Well done to the authorities for keeping this as close to the original as possible.

What a great day we had in Tombstone. Allen Street is Tombstone's "main street" offering shops, museums, stagecoach rides, restaurants, saloons etc. The western town takes you back to the 1880's. The walkway along Allen Street is so cool, the western rustic feel takes you...More

Not exactly a tourist trap, but they have just about any souvenir you could want. Most of the stores offer locally produced products for sale, in addition to import, from this continent as well as foreign.

Love Allen St. Several visits later I am sad to see many of my favorite stores out of business and still empty. Love the street entertainers. Fun to sit on one of the many benches and people watch.

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