DayTrippin’ in Bisbee…an Event Planner’s Tale

Bisbee is my new “I want to live there” spot.

This little town once known as the “Queen of the Copper Camps” has captured my heart as only a weird, eclectic, funky, vibrant little town can. I took the tip today with Nat from Bati’Mamselle Boutique, and if she ever decides to quit her awesome job as the owner of the first mobile boutique in AZ, she should be a Bisbee tour guide 😉

Bisbee is full of B&Bs and hotels that would suit any lodging need, be it traveling for one of the many local events, weddings, weekend getaways, etc. We were afforded the opportunity to tour the seven suites and six rooms of Bisbee Grand Hotel and heard a few spooky tales from the staff at The Grand Saloon.

The many antique and thrift shops that line Main St. are a treasure hunter’s dream; you are sure to find whatever you’re looking for and a trunk full more.

Lunch was at the High Desert Market and Café, where the menu is chock full of awesomely delicious food, and the deli counter is “sandwiched” between a juice bar on one side and a culinary market from which I purchased the last few items for a gift basket that will be auctioned off at an event later this month. (Check us out on Instagram for a peek.) High Desert does offer catering for all event types, including custom wedding cakes!

As an event planner, it is my job to know local vendors and their offerings to best serve my clients. Today’s trip allowed me the opportunity to connect with services outside of Sierra Vista, and who knows, maybe my next client will choose to make this gem of a place the setting for their next soiree.

HAPPY PLANNING!

So, when are you going to Bisbee? Let us know, maybe we’ll meet ya there 😉
