Tucson's Urban Core
Downtown Tucson As You've Never Before Seen It
A haven for the free thinkers and the free at heart, Tucson's urban core is thriving. New restaurants, bars and shops are opening in historic buildings alongside galleries, museums and theaters on the 3.9-mile Sun Link Tucson Streetcar route. This modern and vintage blend creates a totally Tucson vibe more interesting, more authentic, and more comfortably real than any cookie-cutter chain development.
Plan your visit with award-winning UniquelyTucson.com. Get to know the local scene at 2nd Saturdays Downtown--a monthly street festival with free and ticketed entertainment for all ages. See the schedule on 2ndSaturdays.com, and watch the video below for scenes from the event:
15,000+ Parking Spaces
Yes, you can park! Downtown Tucson has more than 15,000 parking spaces, including free space, metered street parking, and multiple patrolled garages. Visit the Park Tucson website for a complete guide to parking in Downtown Tucson.
Sun Link Tucson Streetcar
The City of Tucson started service for its first electric railway streetcar in July 2014. The 3.9-mile Sun Link Tucson Streetcar connects five major districts in central Tucson - the University of Arizona, Main Gate Square, 4th Avenue, Downtown Tucson, and Mercado San Agustin. Riders can enjoy permanent displays of public art and/or poetry, provided the University of Arizona Poetry Center, at most of the streetcar stops.
