This Tiny Arizona Town Was Named One Of The Best Places To Visit
Arizona has a lot going for it: breathtaking views, delicious food, and a surprising number of fun-filled activities to do throughout the year. With all of those, it’s no wonder our state has become a tourist destination no matter the season.
That’s why we’re not surprised that one Arizona small town was just named one of the best places to visit in the world! And, if you’ve ever visited, you’ll probably agree.
Bisbee, a small mining town located just miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, was just named one of Frommer’s Best Places To Go In 2018. This placed the little town on the same playing field as international locations like Malta, Nicaragua, and Switzerland.
The travel guide named Bisbee’s small town appeal, perfectly historic areas, and artist community as reasons for including it on the list. And, we have to agree! Let's take a look at some of the things you can find when staying a night or two in town.
Bisbee looks exactly like the little mining town you would expect to find in the West. Winding streets, Victorian era buildings, and even more recent testaments to the town's past.
You can even visit the old mine for yourself! Throw on a hardhat and hop aboard a mine cart to explore the tunnels of the Queen Mine with a retired miner.
And, if you're looking for a place to spend the night, check out the Shady Dell. It features a number of vintage Airstream trailers decked in retro decor within view of the desert mountains and hills nearby.
And, if you want something a little more historic or spooky, try a night at the Copper Queen Hotel. The historic hotel features beautiful grounds, cozy accommodations, and even a couple of ghosts!
When you get hungry, Bisbee also has plenty of restaurants to choose from! You'll find all-day breakfast options, steakhouses, Mexican food, vegetarian restaurants, and even a spot to get a hot bowl of pho!
