A few months ago, Only In Arizona highlighted some historic towns found across the state and we knew these places were pretty darn special. But did you know that one of them was recently voted as the Best Historic Small Town in the nation? If you’ve ever visited or lived in Bisbee, you probably wouldn’t be surprised to know it was awarded this top-notch award.
Awarded through popular vote in USA Today’s 10 Best list, Bisbee beat 19 other similar towns including popular locations like Williamsburg, Virginia. So what exactly led people to vote this tiny town as a national favorite? As you’ll see below, it’s a combination of its rich history, good looks, and small town charm.
Have you been to the ever lovely Bisbee? We’d love to hear your favorite memories of the town and what you love best about it!
