Bisbee, AZ


We moved on to Double Adobe Campground (and Shotgun Sports!), only 9 miles from Whitewater Draw, and 8 miles from Bisbee. We stayed here for a few nights in 2009 and although it isn’t the most attractive RV park, we are more protected from the strong winds that are affecting southern Arizona. Right now we are having gusts to 45 mph, a good day to stay inside and off the roads.

Yesterday was less windy, so we went to Bisbee for lunch, window shopping, and “hiking” the hilly streets and some of the many steps.


Bisbee is a quirky little artist town that used to have a prosperous copper mine. There are some nice shops and galleries along the main street, and this was one of our favorites.


Sam and Poe are two different artists with quite the imaginations and creative talents. Nothing would fit in our RV but we liked their unique art work.





We also saw some interesting things while walking the streets.


Including unusual decorations on many of the houses.

Bisbee March 2011


The streets are more like alleys, but cars actually drive on them to get to the houses.


We ate lunch at Bella Roma Pizza, which sounded and looked good, but turned out to be just average. Why is it so hard to make a really good pizza? Guess we’ll just have to keep searching!


  1. Me and Nilda once ate at that Cafe Cornucopia which is little more than a hole in the wall a little ways up the main street hill. They had the jim dandiest meatloaf sandwich this side of my Aunt Carrie Sue's kitchen, and she were my favoritest aunt besides being a good cook.

  2. Thanks for the Bisbee report. When we were there a couple of years ago, we didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked. We'll be sure and try something other than the pizza place when we return!

  3. Great pics of Bisbee. We visited their last year and it is one of favorite little towns in the entire southwest.

  4. Bisbee is on our list of places to visit.

    Thank you for the kind words on our blog.Have a good week.
