Bisbee, Arizona: Part 2 :The Historic Downtown of Bisbee

Bisbee was once a thriving copper, gold, and silver mining town in the mid 1880's. There is a particular style of turquoise found there called Bisbee Blue. Today it thrives on tourism.  The historic downtown is bright, lively with artists, and well preserved.  The streets are narrow and wind up the hillside.  It is about 50 miles southeast of Benson, Az. SInce the 70's with the demise of mining, it has become somewhat of an artists colony.

Yep, that is a street winding up the hill!

They had some cool art deco type building mixed in.

There is a club environment down by the brewery

Some business venues are only as wide as the sidewalk

Lots of nooks and crannys to peer into
