Go Gun Slinging and Golfing on Your Next Vacation

Wyatt_EarpIn 1881, Wyatt Earp, his brothers Virgil and Morgan, and Doc Holliday strolled down the empty streets of Tombstone to face the Clanton Gang at the O.K. Corral. The gunfight that ensued is one of the most storied in Old West lore. Though the face-off between the Earps and the Clantons lasted a mere 30 seconds, it’s left a lasting impact on American history.

This May, celebrate the outlaws and lawmen of Arizona’s Old West at Wyatt Earp Days in Tombstone. Held during Memorial Day Weekend (May 24-26), you can walk the preserved streets of Tombstone and learn about life in the Wild West. Visit a saloon for a sarsaparilla, take a ride on a stagecoach and tour the local graveyards.

Wyatt Earp DaysYou’ll also get a chance to experience the most dramatic moments in Tombstone’s history when re-enactors take to the streets to perform live. There will even be a chili cook-off, where you can see if you have the toughest taste buds in the west.
