Bisbee, AZ

Spending Mother's Day weekend in Bisbee, AZ at Queen Mine RV park.

Bisbee is a cool, quirky little town with a personality of it's own. It was once one of the largest cities in AZ due to the copper mine. The mine is now closed but you can take an underground tour, riding in modified ore car rails, guided by one of the former workers. The mine tour office is around 50 yards from the RV park.

Bisbee has great restaurants, art, gift shops (of course) and music venues. If you're here for Halloween they close the street in front of the Copper Queen Hotel for a street dance and the whole town is in full party mode. You'll see things you've probably never seen before.

The park itself has 25 sites and sited up on a knoll overlooking the city. It offers full hook-ups and has nice clean restrooms with showers and laundry facilities. It's dog friendly (no charge) and quiet. Downtown is directly across the road under and underpass- around a 5 minute walk

We took our maiden voyage in our "new to us" RV to the Queen Mine RV Park two months ago. Great people, park and destination. It contributing to our being glad we became RV'ers.

We live about 50 miles from there and it is a great place to spend some time. Also there is Tombstone not that far away that is a good place to stop and see. When it is Cold and snowing in the Mid and East come see us In Arizona.

I went on a car tour, (convertible) of the Southwest with a buddy two years ago and we went to Bisbee. We did the mine tour and had lunch at the Copper Queen Hotel. I'm a big fan of J. A. Jance, (she grew up there and I met her last month). I liked seeing some of the places in her books. I thought it was a delightful little town.

High points of the weekend were:
- amazing dinner at Cafe' Roka
- wandering around town sampling beverages on the outdoor patios and beer gardens
- finding the perfect Mother's Day gift in one of the many jewelery/gift stores
- the old fellow dressed in prospector garb leading his burro down the sidewalk. Burro had burlap saddle bags inscripted with the words "Feed my hungry ass". We did
