Mile-high Bisbee for Cochise County exploring.

Mile-high Bisbee for Cochise County exploring If you think of summer in Arizona as one continuous expanse of Phoenix heat, go to Bisbee. In this hilly, picturesque 1880s silver- and copper-mining town, you can explore a historic district loaded with turn-of-the-century shops, restaurants, a theater, and lodgings ranging from the stately brick Copper Queen Hotel to a half-dozen bed-and-breakfasts--in temperatures that usually don't break 90 [degrees]. The hamber of commerce will send details and sign you up for inexpensive mine and walking tours; call (602) 432-2141.

To explore farther afield, try the nearby small towns of Tombstone and Douglas, and the Mexican border towns of Naco and Agua Prieta. For outdoor beauty, it's about 90 miles northeast to Chricahua National Monument, 80 miles north to the Cochise Stronghold hike in the Dragoon Mountains.

Bisbee is 100 miles from Tucson, 200 from Phoenix.
