Bisbee is wedged between the steep walls of Tombstone Canyon, its roads narrow and twisty, the buildings old and fragile, and there's a monstrous open-pit mine gaping toward the heavens at the east end of town. But take a closer look. Those 19th-century buildings are packed tight with interesting galleries, splendid restaurants and charming hotels. As for the citizens, well, just settle onto a bar stool at a local watering hole and a chatty local will likely share all of the town's gossip before you order your second drink.
Hwy 80 runs through the center of town. Most businesses are found in the Historic District (Old Bisbee), along Main St and near the intersection of Howell and Brewery Aves. Many businesses and restaurants close from Monday to Wednesday, so plan your visit for later in the week.
