For Thanksgiving, Dave and I went to Tombstone, Arizona. The movie Tombstone is pretty historically accurate. Tombstone was a boom town in the 1880s because of silver mining. Now, it is a small town with many tourist. We arrived on Thanksgiving Day and the entire town was closed except for one museum at the courthouse, a gunfight, two bars, and a gas station. At least we were able to get good pictures of the town without any people in them. We really felt like we stepped back into the 1880s! Friday, all the shops, museums, and gunfights were open and the town was very busy. If you enjoy the movie, you would love visiting Tombstone. If you ever find me missing from home, I might be hiding in Tombstone waiting tables!
