The Southeast End of Allen Street, Tombstone, Arizona USA
Arizona
Tombstone, Arizona is known as the town too tough to die. Formerly a mining boom town, today, Tombstone is a tourist center for replaying the old West. Tombstone is not a remade movie set or a theme attraction, it is the real thing. The buildings and artifacts are authentic. Located close to the Mexican border in southern Arizona, the town originally was the county seat of Cochise County. The county seat is now in Bisbee, a few miles away, but the old Court House and County Building is still standing and is now a museum. The main street is blocked off to vehicle traffic except horse drawn wagons and stagecoaches. Mock gun battles are held in the street where one of most famous gun fights in history, the battle of the O.K. Corral actually took place. This is a destination worth visiting. When Ed Schieffelin, a soldier stationed at Fort Huachuca, left to go prospecting, he was told that rather than find silver he would find his own tombstone. When he struck it rich, he named his first mine the Tombstone and the town that grew around the mine took that name.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
