Bisbee is more than just a geographical location—it’s a state of mind. Nestled in Cochise County’s Mule Mountains at an elevation of 5,350 ft., Bisbee is a free-thinking oasis that appreciates its past while constantly reinventing itself for the future. In Bisbee you can step back in time and know your neighbors. You can be a laid-back trendsetter as well as a community activist. You can follow your passions and ultimately have the freedom to be yourself.
Bisbee’s history and its art are intertwined as one strolls the narrow streets and alleys, as well as Bisbee’s 350 historic staircases. Imagine yourself transported to another time and place. Visit a museum housed in an 1890s building that was the first rural Smithsonian Affiliate. Go underground and experience what it was like to be a miner at the Queen Mine Tours. Watch artists create in their galleries on Main Street. A short five mile drive to the suburb of Warren, Arizona’s first master-planned community, offers visitors a chance to experience baseball at one of the country’s oldest ballparks.
The Bisbee area offers bicycling and hiking opportunities with paths and trails within the Mule Mountains, surrounding valleys, and in and around the city’s historic district. The high elevation (5,350 feet) gives Bisbee a distinct advantage in summer months when temperatures are typically several degrees cooler than most other areas of Cochise County and Southern Arizona.
Come and see for yourself why Bisbee was voted “Best Historic Small Town in America” by USA Today and “Best Small Town in the West to Live” by Sunset Magazine.
