Like an Old West theme park, The Town Too Tough to Die brings its history to life on Allen Street. Located in southern Arizona's Cochise County, historic Tombstone embraces its Wild West roots. The Tombstone of today brings history to life with daily re-creations, actors in period garb and preservation of landmarks.

At the O.K. Corral in The Streets of Tombstone Theater, actors playing the Earps and Doc Holliday rapidly re-create a long-simmering feud against the Cowboys—cementing 30 seconds of history in hundreds of visitors' minds every week. Some have said it’s the most famous shootout of the American Wild West, and Tombstone keeps it top-of-mind.

Below: The Mule Pass tunnel is believed to be the longest tunnel in Arizona. Locals call it "The Time Tunnel". It created a new gateway into Bisbee and cut 10 minutes off the drive over the 6,030-foot-high pass on US 80 into the southeastern Arizona mining town of Bisbee.

Mule Pass Tunnel is largely taken for granted now, but it was celebrated as a vital road improvement at a dedication Dec. 19, 1958. Two Arizona governors, other dignitaries and two bands showed up for the ribbon-cutting on a 68-degree day in Bisbee. “It’s clear sailing thru the Mules now,” read the headline in the Bisbee Daily Review. You could read all about it for a nickel. The tunnel builders dusted themselves off from 23 months of work to celebrate the occasion.“It was just dang tough the whole way,” said Ray Paulson, who engineered the $2 million project for the Peter Kiewit & Sons construction company.That's the equivalent of about $17.2 million at today's prices. Federal dollars paid for 87 percent of the project.
