Globe (Arizona)

Globe is in Eastern Arizona.


Globe was founded in 1875 as a mining town, and still today is dependent on mining. The town has many well-preserved buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and can make a pleasant stop. Together with the neighboring town of Miami, Globe and the surrounding area are often referred to as Globe-Miami.

Get in

Globe and Miami are about 1.5 hours east of Phoenix on US Highway 60, and about 2 hours north of Tucson on Highway on State Route 77. Safford, Payson, and Show Low are about a 1.25-1.75 hour drive away.

Get around

The downtown areas of both Globe and neighboring Miami are very pedestrian-friendly, although to get from one to the other you'll need a car.
