Best to go when the sun is shining during winter months. 55 degres with a slight wind at closing time is very cold, remember you are at 4600 feet above sea level.

I’m not sure what I expected from this, but it was actually really cool. They give you a little guide of all the known graves and it really gives you a feel for how short and violent life could be at that time. The cairns...More

It was interesting to see all the graves of famous people. I never realized how many people died on the streets of Tombstone! Wild wild west indeed.

Some people forget that Tombstone is a tourist location. You go there to see to learn a little about history. The Boothill cemetery is no different. It was restored in the 1920’s. For the $3 fee you get a pamphlet that gives you a line...More

Interesting visit to see the actual grave sites of several of the key folks involved in Tombstone history. Takes less than an hour to go through the entire cemetery. Good news is that its $3 to go through so it's worth the time spent.

Very reasonably priced at $3 per person to check out some interesting graves. Well written pamphlet to explain the history. Definitely worth visiting if your in tombstone.

This is a wonderful half hour stop. Be sure to follow and read the brochure along the numbered path to make the most of the visit. By the end you get a good feel for the harsh conditions of the Wild West.

Boothill Graveyard, Tombstone is an interesting reflection of the early, volatile history of this frontier town. There are plenty of "stories" about Tombstone, some fact, some fiction but all fascinating ! The epitaphs are a mixture of hilarity and the sad reality of the time....More

While this graveyard is the first thing you see when entering this small town, we spared it for the last thing to visit, logically. This graveyard is a final resting place for many famous and infamous characters of this mining town - miners, gamblers, business...More

Most all grave sites are marked. The more famous ones that you are looking for are clearly designated. Remember this is a cemetery from the 1800s.... ppl were not always buried 6ft under 😉
