Turns out we're just a short drive away from a top travel destination in 2018. 

TripAdvisor named Bisbee one of the 23 Great Small American Cities to visit in 2018.

"We were able to spend the whole week entertaining ourselves without driving anywhere. Bisbee is a cool little historical, artistic, colorful place,” one TripAdvisor reviewer wrote.

While there, the travel site recommended visitors check out the Bisebee Mining and Historical Museum, stroll through historic Old Bisbee and take a historical home tour of the Warren neighborhood.

TripAdvisor said they picked the top cities based off of the events, character, neighborhoods, culinary scenes and low prices.  

Bisbee was the only town in Arizona to earn a spot on the list. Other cities in the Western United States included Ogden, Utah, and Hood River, Oregon. 

These weren't the first accolades Bisbee received this year. The old mining town also snagged a coveted spot on Frommer's 18 Places to Visit in 2018 list.

Bisbee again was the only Arizona town — and actually one of the few spots in the United States — that earned a spot on the well-known travel book's list.
