What a great town to visit - the Historic district has so many neat shops and taverns. You must go to the Drift Inn Saloon. There is some much history on Doc Halliday and Wyatt Earp and their wives/girlfriends around the town. Well worth the trip from Phoenix.

Globe has a terrific walking tour that tells the history of Globe the downtown area. What make's it like Mayberry are the people. Stop into a shop or one of the local coffee shops and start chatting with the shop keepers-they are all friendly and will tell you where you can find what in town. Like lot's of specialty shops and antique stores to find hidden gems. I have several favorites, like the Pickle Barrel where you can find antiques, interesting wrought iron, local jewelry, native apache crafts and so much more-they are open 7 days a week and also have an antique map you can pick up for both the Globe and Miami antique stores. Another favorite store is Pretty Patty Lou's-love her specialty soaps and gifts-especially her sugar scrub and face cream. Their are several restaurants to choose from as well as local bars to hang with the locals. The Cobre Valley Center for the Arts hosts downtown festivals and wonderful art-as well as plays and musicals throughout the year-Don't miss the annual quilt show in the spring-Beat the heat and have an old fashioned 4th of July at their annual Summer fest-stay another day to watch the fireworks!

My fiance' and I enjoyed walking around the historic district. The old county courthouse was very interesting with lots of local artist paintings displayed. The guide who greeted us was extremely friendly and accommodating even showing us things to do in the area on a map from the local paper. She even offered to call the volunteer guide for the old jail to give us a tour. Unfortunately, the downtown is not booming with many shops uninhabited and deteriorating. I think this downtown has a lot ot potential if the town would encourage businesses to move in and attract all of us folks from Phoenix! It is a beautiful area!
