Where to Live

This is a residential neighborhood with small businesses peppered throughout. Many law firms and other home-run businesses seamlessly merge with the residential homes. South 4th Avenue is the busiest street, so those looking to avoid road traffic will want to skip living right on this street. Also, the farther north one is in the neighborhood, the closer Downtown becomes, with Military Park Plaza serving as a buffer. Outside of this, really anywhere within the neighborhood is an exceptional spot to call home, especially when searching for a home with character.

Where to Eat

Most of the restaurants are located just north in Downtown Tucson. In fact, because of this, there are few restaurants within the neighborhood itself. The dining options within Armory Park - scant as they are - are eclectic and high quality. Chic and perpetually busy Downtown Kitchen and Cocktails is on South 6th Avenue. Just off of 6th Avenue are several unique dining options that range from tapas to American to brewpubs. Barrio Brewing Company, on the eastern edge of the neighborhood, offers craft beer from an award-winning, local brewery. They are known for their burgers and sandwiches, especially their Reuben sandwich.

What You'll See

Historical buildings are the name of the game in Armory Park. Residents will find classic Spanish-inspired homes, many of which date back to the early 1900s. There are newer homes within the community as well, but most are designed to fit right in with the historical look of the community. Armory Park is also home to Children's Museum Tucson and Military Plaza Park.

Friday Night Fun

As Downtown is just around the corner, walking to bars and restaurants is a popular choice for residents. The highlights within Armory Park itself include Barrio Brewery Company. The brewery, in the middle of an industrial park, is large with plenty of activities and games to play. Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant, located on Cushing Street, is a family-owned establishment that has live jazz performances every Saturday night. Armory Park also has Thunder Canyon Brewery, which has been serving the city local craft beer since 1997.

The Perfect Sunday

Simply walking down the streets in Armory Park to admire some of the beautifully maintained historical buildings is a treat, especially during the early spring and fall months. Take a tour of the Children's Museum Tucson or Museum of Contemporary Art. End the weekend with a picnic in Military Plaza Park.
