Visit the O.K. Corral

While you are in the West, you will probably want to visit some of the old West historical sites. One of the most popular sites to see as a historical location is the O.K. Corral and it is still in operation to this day. You can see the museums and learn about the history before you get to see a reenactment of the famous gunfight.

All of this is open to the public and the O.K. Corral is one of the best historical places to visit that you could possibly consider going to in the West. As a matter of fact, you would really be missing out if you did not visit this great site. Since it is a  must see, you should know some venues to catch while there.

The town is called Tombstone and surely you are familiar with that famous name. At the same time, maybe you only know it from movies or as a brand of frozen pizza but it has a deep history. That is why you will want to make your first stop the Tombstone Historama.

There, you will get to watch a 26 minute video detailing the history of this quaint, historic town. That will get you ready for the other sights to see while you are there and it will also prepare you for viewing the gunfight reenactment later in the day.

It is a good idea to see all of the rest of the spots at the O.K. Corral and Tombstone before you venture into watching the reenactment. This is because you will want to have some familiar sense of the history before the show and also because the venues get very crowded after the gunfight.

Besides, you will want to have time to get your pictures taken with the gunfighters and that is part of what is offered for a small fee.
