  • Amazing place. Great selection of unique and eclectic art. People who hangout there are eager to talk and exchange news of the day. It's a relaxing, peaceful place to enjoy Tucson.
  • Quaint artistic oasis! Feels like a hidden magical gem, a little adventure!
  • Perfect place to find last minute presents.
  • Nice gift/art shop with lots of variety, mostly related to Tucson and the Southwest. One of the store owners chatted us up and gave us some interesting history facts about the building and the surrounding area, as well as some of the artists showcased on the store. Very friendly, and not too touristy/clich√©.
  • Great food and shops. Live music is at the perfect volume to eat dinner and chat. Really unique and great place.

Where to stay in Tucson

To discover the tranquility of the Sonoran Desert, book your stay at an inn just a short drive from Tucson. Staying on the outskirts of the city allows you quick and easy access to some of Arizona's wildest areas, though it does require a car if you wish to enjoy Tucson's shops and restaurants. For the ultimate in indulgence, consider one of the city's award-winning luxury resorts, which feature full-service spa and fitness centers, championship golf courses, lighted tennis courts, and indoor swimming pools.
