Getting Around Sam Hughes

Around Sam Hughes

Locked in between Speedway Boulevard to the north, Broadway Boulevard to the south, Campbell Avenue to the west, and Country Club Road to the east, the edges of the community host most of the restaurant and entertainment options. With Tucson Boulevard and 6th Street sectioning off the community into smaller squares, the best areas to live really are a few blocks in, away from the major intersections. Residents along the northwest area of the neighborhood are more likely to hear fireworks and general noise during football games, which are primarily in the evenings. That is something to consider, but outside of this, it tends to be a quiet and calm neighborhood.

While there are some franchise restaurants off of Speedway Boulevard, the best dining is off of Broadway Boulevard. Check out Tucson Tamale, a local chain that has been a hit with locals since opening in 2008. Pollo Feliz and Lerua's Fine, which opened in 1922, consistently serve up some of the area's best Mexican food.

There is a large array of building styles in this community. Most are brick based with larger front yards and fenced-in back yards. It also has more in way of greenery, including towering trees and lush vegetation. While it doesn't have the kind of plant life neighborhoods closer to the mountains have, it is hard to find anything with more natural desert beauty in such a central location.

Most of the bars and restaurants around the university are in one area, away from Sam Hughes. However, Side Car, on the corner of Broadway Boulevard and Country Club Road, is a great local spot for fresh cocktails and Headquarters Hookah Lounge is a perfect place to kick back and relax. Sam Hughes also hosts the Arizona Ballet Theatre for those seeking a more cultural Friday night.

With sidewalks throughout, it is an enjoyable neighborhood to take an afternoon stroll. For those who went out the night before, tea at Seven Cups Find Chinese Teas off of Tucson Boulevard and 6th Street is a must. It's possible to pick up teas here and to just sip on imported perfection and small cakes. Himmel Park in the north area of the neighborhood is perfect for a relaxing evening before the work week begins.
