Take a Stroll Along Historic Fourth Avenue

Nestled between University Blvd. and 9th St. is a destination featuring more than one hundred eclectic boutiques, galleries, and restaurants.

It's called the Fourth Avenue Shopping District, and it is just eighteen minutes from our apartments in East Tucson.

Highlights include:

Mabel's on 4th

Mabel's on 4th boasts it's the boutique that Tucson's kitchen fanatics have always dreamed of. It mixes the past and present and is complete with a clawfoot tub full of cookie cutters and gadgets you saw in your grandmother's kitchen. The friendly staff is happy to answer questions, and other items include rapid whisks, cake testers, and tea towels.

Rustic Candle Company

The Rustic Candle Company is where Old World craftsmanship meets Modern Age. Locally owned, it has served thousands of customers over the last ten years, and everyone can watch as the pillar candles are hand poured. Each one is unique and features a rustic whitewash finish, and scents include Dragon's Blood, Eclipse, and Red Currant Tea.

Lindy's on 4th

Lindy's opened in 2005 and offers a dining experience not soon forgotten. It serves some of the best burgers in the city and has been featured on both the Food Network and the Travel Channel. The servers often know regulars by name, and guests can enjoy their meal in the vibrant dining room or on the quaint patio. Burgers include Boss, Big Bad Beef, and Texas Belt Buckle, and they can be enjoyed with a side of jalapeno potato salad. The menu also features the Challenge Burger, and to make the Hall of Fame, you must finish the monster patty within thirty minutes.

These are just a few of the shopping destinations within a short drive of our apartment community. If you are searching for a place to live, please contact us. Our leasing agents would love to give you a tour.
