Bisbee is a mining town, or was. Like many mining towns it is situated up against a steep hill. Walking the streets of Bisbee is a journey back to the late 19th and early 20th century. Just exploring the shops, restaurants, galleries, and other establishments housed in these fine old buildings is a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon.
Take a Golf Cart Tour of the city. Much easier on the knees than walking and get a good dose of history to boot! There are also jeep tours of the historic district and mines. The primary historic district includes Main Street, Brewery Gulch, OK Street, Tombstone Canyon, and much of the surrounding hillsides.
Bisbee has several fine art galleries and antique shops. A lot of folks go there just to people-watch. One might describe Bisbee’s hippy & biker inhabitants as “colorful”. The old saloons, such as St. Elmo’s along Brewery Gulch, are good places to make acquaintance with the indigenous population.
