Welcome to Cochise County, Arizona

Official site for the Cochise County Tourism Council

Visit southern Arizona's Cochise County, the “Land of Legends.” Cochise County is where you can find out about Tombstone and the Old West, learn about military history at Fort Huachuca, go birding and hiking in our high deserts, visit mining towns like Bisbee, taste wine from local vineyards and visit U-Picks farms in Willcox, go underground at Kartchner Caverns State Park, and see the historic Gadsden Hotel in Douglas. 

You can find lots to do in Cochise County!

The small communities sprinkled throughout Cochise County celebrate the Christmas season in uniquely colorful ways that reflect the heritage of the southeast region of Arizona. Cowboys, Spanish heritage, Railroading, and Mining all blend together for a great mix of Americana. Each community has their own home grown themes that are interwoven into the tree lighting ceremonies, Santa’s arrival, parades, and other festive events. Click Here to view the 2014 Holiday Events!

The Cowboy & Indian culture of the American West is alive and well in Cochise County, Arizona preserved in song, poetry, on the streets of Old Tombstone, historic ghost towns, and in the vast landscapes of the Chiracuahua Mountains where Geronimo and his warriors would vanish like smoke.
