Bisbee, Arizona.

"With a population of 20,000 people, Bisbee was the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco. Not only was it a city known for it's culture, it was also known for it's famous Brewery Gulch district. Today you can still see the remains of the stairs leading up to the red light houses."

"In the mid 1970's, the mining operations had stopped and Bisbee was slowly dying. But, thankfully, Bisbee was discovered and taken over by various artists. You can still see flashbacks to the late 1960's and early 1970's. In fact, some people have never left the time frame."

"Bisbee is now a thriving community with gourmet restaurants, coffee houses, art galleries, book stores and specialty shops. One of the favorite places is the Bisbee Coffee Company, where you can enjoy a variety of coffee and teas, and wonderful soups and sandwiches. But the best part is people watching. Just sit outside and watch. Bisbee-ittes are fascinating."

I am super excited to go here this summer!! It will be the best roadtrip ever.
