DAY 3: TUCSON - BISBEE - TOMBSTONE Today take a trip back to the Old West as you visit historic Bisbee. Whimsical, colorful and perhaps a little haunted, Bisbee is anything but an ordinary destination. Following the discovery of gold, lead, zinc and copper in the nearby Mule Mountains, Bisbee grew to a population of 20,000 residents and the largest city between St. Louis and San Francisco in the early 1900’s and voted as the “Best Historic Small Town in America”. Upon arrival we will don hardhats and slickers and experience the Queen Mine Tour 1500 feet below ground. Following the tour you will have time to explore the colorful and well preserved architecture, winding streets and alleys. Next travel to Tombstone, in its early days Tombstone was a rough and tumble silver-mining town made famous by the O.K. Corral gunfight. Today, you can walk where Wyatt Earp walked, see where the infamous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place, visit American Old West historic places such as the Tombstone Courthouse and Bird Cage Theatre. ‘Mosey’ into one of the many Old West-style saloons & restaurants. Stop at the infamous Boothill Cemetery, just outside of Tombstone, then travel back to Tucson. This evening dinner is at a popular local restaurant featuring Southwest cuisine.
