Market Area

Nestled in the mile-high Mule Mountains of southern Arizona, Bisbee has maintained an Old World charm seldom found anywhere in the United States.

The fine collection of well-preserved turn of the century Victorian structures are full of old west history and copper mining lore. Old miners' boarding houses have been refurbished into many charming small bed and breakfast establishments, of which no two are alike.

Former saloons are now quaint shops, antique stores or art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Many travelers return year after year to relax and enjoy a quiet week in Old Bisbee re-discovering these many pleasures.

A popular activity is Bisbee's excellent self-guided fully illustrated walking tour The tour details each historic structure and guides the visitor with a map. Included in the walking tour is world famous Brewery Gulch, which in its heyday boasted upwards of 47 saloons and was considered the "liveliest spot between El Paso and San Francisco."

Other activities include the Queen Mine Tour, a trip down into the now inactive copper mine, a visit at the Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum (a must for history buffs), the historic Muheim House, an outstanding example of 19th century architecture and elegance, and the Lavender Pit.
