Venture 1,500 Feet Underground For A Tour Of The Historic Copper Queen Mine In Arizona

Arizona still has a few hundred active mines, but the industry’s heyday is nothing more than a distant memory. Our state’s mining history is far too rich to let fade into oblivion, which is exactly why tours like this one exist. Copper Queen Mine, where some of the largest copper amounts in the world were found, lets curious visitors descend 1,500 feet underground into its depths. The tour guides are all former mineworkers, so rest assured you’re in for an authentic experience.

We're aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
