I Heart Bisbee

I heard about this little town called Bisbee and didn't really know what to expect. It's really close to the Mexican border, and after we hit up Tombstone it was only a mere 25 minute drive. The husband wasn't too thrilled at first, but once we got there, we were both blown away by how charming and different the town was.

Bisbee is an old mining town that at one point was the biggest city between St. Louis and San Francisco. It's nestled into the mountains and has a lot of cool Victorian architecture, hidden alley stairways, cute antique shops, and quirky buildings.

We ended up having dinner at this Mexican restaurant called Santiago's. It seems like we always eat Mexican food down here (when in Arizona...). It was delicious! The margaritas (I had the Pink Cadillac, husband had the Horni Toad) were amazing, chips and salsa were yummy, and our dinners were great.

Next time we come, we want to stay at the Copper Queen!

Or this cute little Inn... it's very Louisiana Bayou!

We found this awesome gate in my favorite color with my initials (my maiden name)!

We found this interesting building with all these random pieces painted red and hung on the outside. It was definitely quirky, but fun to look at! Love it.

A little art deco on the doors to the court house.

And an interesting railing on some one's stairs.

The husband found the weird animal structure, and of course, BBoy had to try to lick/chew it.

I fell in love with the little town and we both vowed we would one day come back for a long weekend and stay at one of the many bed and breakfasts. I heart Bisbee!
