Bisbee

Delve deep into Arizona's mining past in Bisbee, a town of colorful architecture and equally colorful characters.

Whimsical, colorful, and a perhaps a little haunted, Bisbee is anything but an ordinary destination.

As with all worthwhile treasures, Bisbee is a hidden gem tucked just beyond the point where you think you’ve gone too far as you approach Arizona’s southernmost border. In Bisbee, however, there’s no such thing as going too far; unless of course, you live more than 70 steps up on one of Bisbee’s 350 historic staircases. Recently voted “Best Historic Small Town in America” by USA Today Readers and “Frommer’s Best Places to Go in 2018, Bisbee is a unique place where the past collides with the present in a kaleidoscope of passion, art, color and kindness.

As you stroll through Bisbee’s winding, narrow streets and alleys, the town’s historic role in mining resounds through remarkably preserved architecture, museums and the underground Queen Mine Tour. Beautifully landscaped parks, cultural activities like the Bisbee Farmers Market and Arizona’s oldest baseball park, along with unique events like the Historic Home Tour, the Bisbee Stair Climb, Bisbee Pride, Mariachi Festival, Annual Chocolate Tasting, Altered Book Show, Sidepony Music Festival, and Alice in Bisbeeland embody a community dedicated to acceptance and entertainment for locals and visitors alike.

Those interested in the town’s spookier side, an evening walking tour with Old Bisbee Ghost Tour will introduce the town’s dearly departed. Stay at one of Bisbee’s many comfortable hotels or bed and breakfasts, but don’t be alarmed if you find a ghost in your quarters – many of the town’s locales are rumored to be haunted.

No matter your passion, Bisbee is sure to become one of them. Once you’ve discovered Bisbee, there will always be a place in your heart for this place like no other.
