I have been living in Southern Arizona for a couple of months now. Since I’ve been here, I have heard about this little placed called Bisbee. There is magic and wonder when people describe this place, I was extremely intrigued.
If you’ve visited Bisbee, Arizona or a small town like it, comment below. I would love to hear all about it!
About Bisbee, Arizona
“Located 90 miles southeast of Tucson and nestled among the Mule Mountains, Bisbee is the picturesque county seat of historic Cochise County.
The community was founded in 1880, and quickly became a thriving urban center, driven by a booming mining industry that thrived on the area’s rich reserves of copper and precious metals.
Today, Bisbee’s extraordinarily well-preserved early-twentieth-century downtown draws visitors from around the world, who appreciate its historic architecture, it’s welcoming, creative spirit and its cool climate. Bisbee also serves as an ideal overnight home-base for visitors – birders, hikers, wine-tasters, music-appreciators, and others who wish to explore our geologically, biologically and culturally rich “Sky Islands” region. “
I LOVE antique shops. Growing up my parents would drag me to antique shops and thrift stores and I hated it! I don’t know what it is about getting older, but now they are my favorite. You can find so many unique items, it’s incredible.
Here are some places that we visited:
Classic Rock Couture
This amazing little shop was filled with vintage clothes that I wish I looked good in! Check out their Etsy shop here: Classic Rock Couture
Items I’m loving from Classic Rock Couture’s Etsy Shop:
Old Bisbee Brewing Company
Old Bisbee is a micro brewery located in the heart of Old Bisbee.
Not only do they have beer, but you can also rent out their ‘penthouse’ to stay for a night. Check them out here: Old Bisbee Brewing Company
The beer that I tried is the ‘Salut!’, here is how they describe it:
“Don’t like beer? Try Salut! Some say it tastes a bit like Prosecco or sweet Champagne. French brewers developed this beverage in the late nineteenth century as an answer to the Great Wine Blight. We use champagne yeast, and extracts of peach and Bulgarian elderberry flower in this crystal clear refreshment. GLUTEN FREE – ABV 4.8%”
It was an interesting beer, I had never tried anything like it. But you have to be careful because it is SO easy to drink, you’ll get drunk fast.
They also sell some food items, such as bratwurst & chips, chili and chili brat.
Although the day was nice and cool, we decided that we needed something refreshing. We stopped at the local Gelato shop. I got a scoop of their passion fruit gelato that was absolutely amazing. This shop is actually also located in Scottsdale, Arizona and Sedona, Arizona. Check them out here: Pussycat Gelato
Here is what they say “True Gelato” is:
“The easiest way to assess gelato is simply by looking at it. True gelato has muted natural colors, nothing bright. Pistachios are not actually electric green, and neither are kiwis, while cantaloupes are light orange, not bright orange. Gelato should be the color of its ingredients slightly lightened by milk so when you see gelato that looks like neon, even in Italy, it means it’s jacked with ingredients not found in nature and should be skipped. Not every gelateria in Italy is good. PussyCat Gelato has no artificial colors, flavors. or preservatives. Our sorbets are vegan and gluten free. Our gelato is gluten free unless infused with a cookie, brownie or something of that nature.“
They are extremely passionate about their product and it shows!
