The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral

The most famous gun fight of the Old West and the highlight of many movies was the gunfight at the O.K. Corral (October 26, 1881). This 30-second battle between the Earps and Doc Holiday against the Clantons and McLaurys is now reenacted every day. Indeed, in Tombstone, gunfights occur regularly around town between noon and 4:00 p.m. Be careful who you insult!

Address: O.K. Corral, 308 E. Allen Street, P.O. Box 367, Tombstone, Arizona 85638; 520-457-3456; 800-518-1566. Email: okcorral@ok-corral.com. Web: http://www.ok-corral.com.


World's Largest Rose Tree

The canopy of the World's Largest Rose Tree in Tombstone, Arizona spreads across more than 8,000 square feet. That's a lot of shade! Planted in 1885, the Lady Blankia rose has more than a million blossoms. That's a lot of scent! Take it all in while visiting the Town Too Tough to Die.

Address: Rose Tree Inn Museum & Gift Shop, 116 South Fourth Street, P.O. Box 808, Tombstone, Arizona 85638; 520-457-3326. Web: http://exploretombstone.com/rosetree.html.
