I had thought that Boot Hill Cemetery still had some original graves, so I was disappointed when I found out there were none left. Since there are no longer any original graves or tombstones there, I found the whole Boot Hill areas of Dodge City simply a tourist place and not really a historic site. But it was well maintained and had good people working there. I don’t recommend making a special trip just to see Dodge City, but by all means stop there if you’re in the neighborhood.

Some of the highlights of our visit to Old Dodge City were watching the citizens of the community line up for and perform an old fashioned can-can dance in an attempt to achieve a record for the longest can-can line ever. This was a special event lined up for the Memorial Day weekend celebration and was held outside the museum in the parking lot.
The museum itself housed an awesome collection of guns. This was one of the most impressive exhibits on the site. The Long Branch Saloon was also a nice attraction. Historical reenactment actors wandered the grounds and were more than happy to visit with anyone.
The morning we visited they were offering a Chuck Wagon breakfast at $1.00 per plate -- biscuits and gravy and a beverage. There were plenty of picnic tables available for the guests.
