Near the end of the best vacations – the ones where you get caught up with everything the place you’re visiting has to offer – there’s inevitably a moment when you’re walking by a cute house you’re trying to guess the price of that you say to yourself: “What’s it like to live here?”
Why not start out your vacation with that experience? Downtown Tucson is ready for you to explore and you can take it all in at a nearby bed and breakfast.
At the Blenman House Inn, built in 1878, you can enjoy a bit of Tucson history while remaining within walking distance of Tucson’s vibrant nightlife and spectacular downtown restaurants. The Blenman House was constructed is thought to be the only example of San Francisco-style Victorian architecture built in Territorial-style adobe mud. The Adobe Rose Inn
is just two blocks east of the University of Arizona and offers serene courtyards and rooms ready for parents visiting their children at school who also could use a romantic getaway. The Catalina Park Inn tucked away in Tucson’s desirable West University neighborhood offers a breakfast that will start off any morning in the best possible way (the banana bread will have you asking for the recipe).
The Big Blue House Inn, perfectly located between the University of Arizona and the unique offerings of Fourth Avenue, shows off some of Tucson’s creative style with their suites, one themed with Asian décor, another enveloped in original Art Deco design. The El Presidio Bed and Breakfast Inn
reminds you of Tucson’s Old Mexico past from the minute you walk up and is less than a five-minute walk from the Tucson Museum of Art and the historic Old Town Artisans buildings. The Sam Hughes Inn Bed and Breakfast, a 1930s Spanish-inspired 1930s home with a red-tiled roof, original oak floors, and Art Deco architectural details, adds to the incredible variety of early Tucson homes in this residential area.
Live like a local (maybe even a bit better) for a while in Tucson at one of our downtown bed and breakfasts.
