Downtown Tucson

Buoyant culture, rich history, and tantalizing amenities.

Welcome to Downtown Tucson

Buoyant culture, rich history, and tantalizing amenities at your fingertips
Cradling six distinct districts - Main Gate, Fourth Avenue, Congress Street, Presidio, Convention, and Sentinel - Downtown Tucson blends vintage charm with a modern vibrancy. The area is an international hub for gourmet dining, fancy shopping, and sunset hikes in the park. A four-mile Sun Link Tucson Streetcar connects all six downtown districts, and locals are especially drawn to the area for its glitzy nightlife scene, cultural diversity, and bustling atmosphere.
Once a neglected area with decaying buildings, city planners gave Downtown Tucson a facelift in a massive revitalization effort called Rio Nuevo around the end of the 20th century. With a myriad of awe-inspiring projects underway, downtown Tucson exudes historic beauty, and the art, architecture, food, and culture, make it a terrific place to reside and raise a family.
An oasis of architectural styles reflecting the different cultural eras of the past, Downtown Tucson flaunts diversity in its range of residential structures. A mix of Sonoran townhomes of exposed adobe blocks, Pueblo revivals, and modern ranches are all painted in earthy tones of muted brown, cream, or clay to blend into the gorgeous desert backdrop.
