What Sierra Vista is like for active adults

Sierra Vista is a town in very southern Arizona, not too far from the Mexican town of Nogales. It offers many attractions such as the panoramic views of the natural beauty and grandeur of the Dragoon, Mule and Huachuca Mountains; the Nature Conservancy's Ramsey Canyon Preserve, hummingbird capital of the US; the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area; Chirachahua National Monuments.  In nearby Bisbee you can tour the Copper Queen copper mine. Historic Tombstone - "The Town Too Tough to Die" with it's infamous "OK Corral"- and historic Fort Huachuca are also nearby.  Picture of Huachuca Mountains in the Winter courtesy of Wikipedia and Alb8001.
