Going To 4th
I find myself on 4th Avenue at least once a week for any number of reasons. I love that it’s so close to all the mini downtown areas of Tucson which includes 4th Aveneue, Congress Street and Main Gate Square (University of Arizona’s mini downtown).
The Sun Link Lightrail Modern Street Car connects the three, making it so easy to get from one place to the next and if you want you could stroll through the disco led lit up underpass where you can hear many talented street performers adding an eclectic unique atmosphere that is not present in many places.
Did you know Tucson is also one of the most bikeable cities in the country and the city has many current plans for growth and expansions including building and rearranging roads downtown and new unique business’s have been joining Tucson’s downtown steadily.
What To Do on 4th Avenue
One of the things I love most about 4th Ave Tucson is there are almost NO Franchises! Almost everything is a creative, unique, locally-owned small business. The restaurants and coffee shops only serve the most delicious food and drinks, especially if you like authentic Mexican food!
