Bisbee Arizona

Bisbee is a mining town with a glorious history.  Bisbee mining was quite successful, it proved to be one of the richest mineral sites in the world.  It produced nearly 3 million ounces of Gold and 8 billion pounds of Copper, also Silver, Lead and Zinc.  The success of the mine led to the city being a cultural center for years.   And as you would expect with miners, Brewery Gulch had saloons and brothels in abundance.  

Today Bisbee is a sleepy town, proud of its heritage.  The old brick buildings give the town a very different feel compared to the big cities these days.

Be sure to take a tour of The Queen Mine.  Dress appropriately it gets quite chilly underground and reservations required! Maybe you would like a ghost tour, or just a stroll through town exploring the unique shops.  

Where to Stay?  We had a blast with friends when we stayed at The Shady Dell.  A Glamping experience!  No RV needed, stay in one of their vintage RV’s fully equipped with record players and LP’s. The trailers range in size and were all built in the 1940’s and 50’s with plenty of Kitch to go around! Grab a bite at Dot’s Diner or use the charcoal grills to cook up your own goodies. 

We had a great time with friends and we will be back! ~ Copyright © 2005 ~ All Rights Reserved
