A couple weekends ago, I headed east out of Phoenix on Rt. 60 towards the cities of Miami and Globe. Both of them are old mining towns in different states of repair. Globe, maybe due to its location at the crossroads of 3 highways, was in much better condition than Miami, which is a few miles west of Globe.
Miami, AZ - Two words: Beat Up. It was Sunday morning and there was little to no activity that I saw. The downtown area was in various states of disrepair with many boarded up and vacant buildings. There were a fair amount of antiques shops, but all were closed. It was kind of eerie.
Globe, AZ - This town was in much better condition with more activity. Although, being Sunday, a lot of places downtown were closed.
