Downtown Tucson is a fabulous base to explore the rest of the city and the region surrounded by four glorious mountain ranges. Located just a few minutes from the Tucson International Airport and a short 90 minutes to the south of Phoenix, Downtown Tucson is the next hip urban center.

Staying Downtown means being in the middle of all that is happening. It’s situated right around the corner from the University of Arizona, Main Gate Square, the bohemian Fourth Avenue and the new Mercado District.

From Downtown Tucson it is just a brief drive to the artist haven of Bisbee and historic Tombstone, just three hours to a margarita on the beach of the Sea of Cortez in Rocky Point, Mexico.

From the urban core, the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert is just minutes away. Tucson Mountain Park features glorious mountain trails and the park’s Gates Pass is one of the best places in town to drink in a Western sunset. Visit the cooler weather with a 45 minute drive up to Mount Lemmon and the charming town of Summerhaven for day hiking or snowboarding in the winter.

But with an unbelievable variety of shopping, culinary and cultural venues and a fabulous nightlife, why would you ever want to be anywhere other than Downtown Tucson?
