When we were in Bisbee, Arizona last, we took in the Queen Mine Tour, which was great and recommended. We are going back again soon, as there is so much to do and see. The reason we only did the mine tour last time we were there is that we wanted to do “local stuff“. We thought that the best way to do that is to not plan too much, and just walk around a lot. We did, and we stumbled on a sign for a thrift sale at the Old Bisbee School (money donated to its renovation), next to the Gym Club Suites (great place to stay). And, not only was it fun walking around the creeky old school house stairs, but we met some friendly folks in there. And to top it off, we found a Bisbee treasure! We discovered an old table for $15, that we now call our “Bisbee table“. The unique table top is pictured with the rocks we bought at the Bisbee mine (click on the image to enlarge it). It is so Bisbee.

The Daily News-Sun reports, “Tourists dig Bisbee on Fourth“. This is an excellent article about the unique 4th of July celebration in Bisbee, Arizona. The tradition is over 120 years old, long before Arizona was even a state.
Bisbee is truly a step back in to time. For information about places to stay, eat, and visit, go to VisitBisbee.org

BISBEE, ARIZONA is located in Cochise County, and sits at an elevation of 5,538 feet above sea level. It was named after Judge DeWitt Bisbee, of San Francicso, one of the financiers of the Copper Queen Mine. Phelps Dodge halted mining in Bisbee in 1975, and subsequently sold the mine to Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold.
It is a great place to visit and take photographs!
