Getting Around Rincon Heights

Around Rincon Heights

College students who decide to live off campus often turn to Rincon Heights. Generally speaking, the best area to live in the community is on the streets running north and south. Not only is traffic less of an issue, there are also some beautiful homes. North Cherry Avenue, North Highlander Avenue, and Santa Rita Avenue are usually less crowded and most do not allow parking on the street, so having vehicles left in front of homes during football games is not a problem. Most of the homes are single-level homes. However, most properties have a fenced-in yard, which is great for pets.

As the neighborhood is just south of the university, most restaurants are found on 6th Street, which is the northernmost stretch of the community. Cheba Hut has been serving up toasted subs since 1998 and is a neighborhood favorite. Grimaldi's Pizzeria, a New York-style pizza place, is also within Rincon Heights.

When calling Rincon Heights home, most will see a large number of people going back and forth from the university, especially the closer you get to 6th Street. Plus, taking up several blocks along 6th Street is the Mansfield Magnet Middle School, UA Campus Recreational Pool, and "Outdoor Adventures," so this area of the neighborhood can become busy throughout all hours of the day

Some residents in the neighborhood tend to go out to some of the college bars on the west side of campus. However, for those interested in staying within the community, Brew of a Sports Grill is a great spot to catch a game and grab a beer without heading out too far. It serves up the usual bar fare, but it is an enjoyable dive for those who like this style.

Grab some brunch with friends along 6th Street. Registered students can also check out the pool as well. The perfect Sunday may include taking a walk around the University of Arizona Rugby Pitch, which is a pretty interesting location, especially if a rugby match is taking place.
