Tombstone is one gold rush-era "ghost town" that isn't, well, a total ghost town. With a year-round population of about 1,500 (the town's motto is "The Town Too Tough to Die"), Tombstone hits its stride around Halloween, when travelers descend on the town to celebrate "Helldorado Days," which began as an anniversary commemorating the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral (it went down Oct. 26, 1881). The annual event features a variety of Old West-themed activities and is usually held the third weekend in October. While you're whooping it up Old West-style, don't forget to visit Big Nose Kate's Saloon to buy tickets for the "Gunfighter and Ghost Tour," featuring Tombstone's "most haunted" destinations, and check out famous Boothill Cemetery (pictured), where many of the outlaw gunslingers -- and their victims -- are buried.
