Talk to Strangers, But Not All of Them
Most people in Willcox are pretty friendly, and will talk to you willingly. However, if someone LOOKS like a crazy character (or anyone you wouldn't want to talk to), then you should probably trust your instincts and end the conversation before it begins. The local yokels aren't all bad--just a select few.
Cheap Books and Other Thrills
On Railroad Avenue, across from Rex Allen Park, is a little store called "Friends of the Library." There is a table of old, dusty books out front, and the door is a bit difficult to open. Inside however, are hundreds of books for super-cheap prices, Avon products, Western movies, tourism information, and tons of other stuff. This little treasure trove is a place you should definitely step into. I guarantee it'll be a while before you step out of it!
It is a small, rural town with a population under 5,000 and a need for growth. Within WIllcox, there is little for one to occupy him or herself with. There are several festivals throughout the year, such as Rex Allen Days, Wings Over Willcox, and Warren Earp Days. During the rest of the year, you can go to the Rex Allen Theater and choose from two titles to view, play a couple of games at Willcox Bowl, or swim at the City Pool.
"The Surrounding Area"
Surrounding Willcox, you can do a lot of good sightseeing in areas like Dos Cabezas, Mt. Graham, the Willcox Playa (dry lake), Chiricahua National Monument, Cochise Stronghold, and Fort Bowie. My personal favorite is the Chiricahuas--it's a whole heck of a lot cooler in temperature, the rocks are really neat to see, and its such a change from the desert below.
