Congress Street District

Where hip meets history. Meet-up downtown and find much more than there was before.


Downtown’s Main Drag is Everything But

Congress Street District

In Tucson’s cultural core, in and around historic Congress Street, enjoy the excitement of old colliding with new. Concrete-and-glass skyscrapers align with colorful barrio dwellings and preserved historic sites. Sidewalk cafés, acclaimed restaurants, and vintage shops are neighbors to theaters, live music venues, renowned art havens, and paint-spattered startup studios alike.

Hotel Congress, celebrating its centennial in 2019, is infamous as the place where the FBI’s Most Wanted, John Dillinger, was captured by local law enforcement during a 1934 fire. This cornerstone of downtown Tucson lodging is also known for its restaurant, bar, and music venue, while its homegrown events, like HoCo Fest and Agave Heritage Fest, keep the city buzzing year-round. (Don’t mind the ghosts.)
