Bisbee is a most unexpected place. A bustling mining town of the nineteenth century was reborn into the funky artist asylum of the 21st Century. Bisbee has a thriving art scene including theater and music. Painters, sculptors and jewelers haunt the shops streets and cafes. Frequent public events like the Blues Festival and the Great Stair Climb bring a lively edge to the quiet mountain community separating it out from many small communities in the Southwest. Bisbee was carved out of a mountain to become the small town it is today. But don’t expect it to be just like all the other towns, it is singularly unique.
