Infused with a collegiate blend of good times and artsy energy, the area around the University of Arizona has an urban vitality unlike any other Tucson neighborhood.

Take the trolley to the university and the nearby commercial area of Fourth Avenue to relive your college years while discovering a contemporary city scene. The U of A grounds are a de facto botanical garden and home to some of Tucson's premier museums.

After a time on campus, head to the student haunt of Fourth Avenue, whose galleries and restaurants also draw residents with decidedly postgraduate tastes.
