Visiting Tips

Any time is a great time to visit Sierra Vista, but the spring and fall months are particularly popular for birders who come to see hundreds of species travel through the area as part of their annual migration. The majority of trails are free for hikers, birders, or mountain bikers. Ramsey Canyon Preserve has a small fee for day passes.

Hoppin' Grapes offers a fantastic selection of wine and beers, to include some samplings of the local area, which is situated in the heart of Arizona's wine country. Broxton Coffee is a beloved gathering place and serves up delicious coffee and treats. Sierra Vista is a melting pot of cultures and its culinary scene is highlighted by Asian and German influences. Tanuki Sushi Bar & Garden, Indochine Family Restaurant, and the German Cafe are among the standout eateries and have received statewide recognition.
