Tucson Shopping and Districts
(Tucson, Arizona - AZ, USA)
Tucson has a diverse range of shopping options, but with the emphasis firmly on the Southwest. Great quality can be found among the arts and crafts, clothing and furniture on offer, and you will find better deals here than at the swanky malls of nearby Scottsdale
The shopping malls of Tucson open at about 10:00 and remain open throughout the day until 21:00 at night or even longer on weekends. Other local stores and specialty shops generally observe regular office hours, unless located in the touristy areas of Tucson, where they often remain open later.
The bulk of Tucson's best shopping malls and plazas are in the northern Foothills, where you will also find the city's best galleries and trendiest boutiques. Many of these swanky shopping establishments are in an architectural style reminiscent of the Southwest. Here are Tucson's most popular shopping venues:
