What To Do in Bisbee Arizona






Located 90 miles from Tucson, Bisbee AZ, founded in 1880, is a once booming copper mining town that was once the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco. Today it is an attractive city filled with historic Victorian buildings, cafes and restaurants, galleries, boutiques, antique stores and old time saloons. There is even a wine tasting room for Flying Leap Winery at 67 Main. I sampled their Syrah and Rose wines in Wilcox and recommend you do the same when in Bisbee.

Bisbee After 5: This is an Art Walk, starting at 8pm, the second Saturday of each month. Over 20 shops and galleries participate. There are also food, wine, art and music festivals throughout the year.

Bisbee Olive Oil at #8 Brewery Gultch offering a full range of olive oils, marinades and balsamics.

If you have time, you might consider the Queen Mine Tours, where you go into the old copper mines for a tour lasting more than an hour.

The Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum: This museum is well-worth the visit as it features wonderful displays on the immigrants, the people working the mines and life in Bisbee during the boom. No. 5 Copper Queen Plaza. It is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution which explains the reason for the great quality of the collection and displays.
