It always feels a bit dicey each time I visit a place I have always wanted to see. I build up all kinds of expectations (even thought I try hard not to). Now, Tombstone Arizona hasn’t exactly been on the top of my list, but growing up watching old western’s does spark a good bit of curiosity. Tombstone was one of the last boomtowns of the west in the 1800’s. Silver, silver, and more silver produced $40 to $85 million in cold hard cash! Can you imagine that amount in the 1800’s? It’s like hittin’ the big one on every state lottery combined!
Lot's of people (I used to be one of them) think Nevada is just one endless desert with not much to do other than gamble. We have found it to be quite the contrary! There are some great historic, haunted and animated towns to explore. Virginia City is one of Nevada's small towns you don't want to miss.
