Grew up watching Westerns like: Terence Hill– They Call Me Trinity, Robert Conrad– The Wild Wild West, Bonanza, 3:10 to Yuma, both Tombstone and Wyatt Earp. We were curious about Tombstone. I expected something similar to the Pioneer Village, in Phoenix, but if you take time to read all the placards you can imagine the rough & dangerous life they led.
“…over 90 acres of an old 1800’s town…blacksmith shop, sheriff’s office and jail, to Victorian ladies… take a step back in time,” say the Pioneer Village website. It takes about 2 hours to walk around this Western town, including attending a short gunfight show. Our stroll in this dusty, desert landscape reminded me a lot of the TV series, Little House in the Prairie, I grew up watching.
