Southwest Wings festival-goers: make reservations early!

If you’re planning to attend the Southwest Wings Birding and Nature Festival, make sure you’re an early bird!

A major conference will be held in Sierra Vista at the same time as the festival, so rooms will be in short supply. Visit SW Wings’ lodging page for info on sponsoring hotels, bed and breakfast inns or motels.

Be sure to make any lodging reservations well in advance!

If you can’t find lodging in Sierra Vista, You might also visit lodging facilities in the neighboring communities in Cochise County. Click on each city to find lodging within these communities (numbers in parentheses indicate mileage to Sierra Vista). Benson (35), Bisbee (24), Douglas (50), Tombstone (32) and Willcox (70).

Happy bird watching!

Darn Good Digs

Great accommodations on a budget

I ran across a site today called Darn Good Digs thanks to Kelly, a blogger I follow on Twitter. (If you don’t know about Twitter, it’s a hot social media site that has grown hugely over the past year. You type in a response to the question: “What are you doing?”)

At first I didn’t “get” Twitter, but now, I’m following a bunch of people that I think have interesting things to say, and I learn lots of new things like, for instance, about this site, Darn Good Digs.

On Darn Good Digs, people nominate hotels, bed & breakfast inns and other accommodations they’ve stayed in that are… well… darn good!

What hotels or bed & breakfast inns have you stayed in that you think belong on the site? You can use their nomination form to tell others about a great place you’ve stayed in that you think should be on the site.

I invite you to visit the site and nominate some! Their tagline says that they highlight “out-a-sight inns for in-the-know travelers,” and their version of budget is below $150.

I can think of a few in Cochise County that could qualify: the Shady Dell ($55-$145 a night), the Letson Loft Hotel ($130-$185 a night), the tipi at Cochise Stronghold Bed & Breakfast and the Copper City Inn ($110-$135 a night). The Casa de San Pedro is just over the $150 mark at $160, but I think it’s “darn good” too.

What others? Let us know by leaving a comment below and adding a link to the hotel’s Web site. Thanks!
