Students, parents, and University of Arizona fans will soon be descending on Tucson in anticipation of starting school and watching the U of A Wildcats. For places to eat, stay, golf, hike, and shop while you are in Tucson, be sure to visit

If you are traveling a great distance to visit Tucson, you may want to consider all the great places to visit just to the south. Tubac, Tumacacori, and the Santa Cruz Valley wine Country. Another great nearby area is Cochise County, which includes Bisbee and Tombstone. All are easy day trips.

Mining for treasure in Bisbee, Arizona

Bisbee rocks on our Bisbee table

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. to find your Cochise County treasure!
