You will definitely want to have a car to travel around Tombstone. Although the city itself is not that big, getting from one historical site to another is not that easy without having your own transport to get you there. Rental cars are readily available from the nearest airport, located in Tucson. A number of major car rental companies also have locations in Benson, located 27 miles north of  Tombstone.

A great way to see the main sights of Tombstone, while actually learning about what you're seeing, is to take a walking tour of the city. Check with the visitor center in town to find information about tour schedules and meeting places.
