Arizona is rife with abandoned mining towns, but Bisbee is unique in that it’s still a thriving, populous community. Not only do over 5,000 people live in this small city, but a generous amount of unseen visitors — or ghosts, as they’re more commonly known. Many workers met a tragic demise in the copper shafts, and their souls have unfinished business in the most haunted town in Arizona. Despite this, even if you don’t have any paranormal encounters, the town is absolutely charming.

Feel free to explore on your own, or visit the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour website or Facebook page to learn more about their guided walking tours.
