Shopping in Tucson

One way to experience Tucson's unique Southwestern charm is to go boutique hopping at one of the city's Old World-style plazas where many of Tucson's independent, locally-owned shops and galleries are clustered. These one-of-a-kind plazas are known for beautiful architecture, handcrafted details, elaborate courtyards, and intimate cafes that invite leisurely shopping.

Broadway Village
Southwest corner of Broadway Blvd. and Country Club Rd. This Joesler-designed mission-style complex boasts eateries, beauty salons, and a day spa, plus a number of interesting shops, from custom jewelry and children's clothing, to art, fine Mexican Colonial furniture, kitchen wares and rugs.

Casas Adobes Plaza
Southwest corner of Oracle Rd. and Ina Rd. This Territorial-style center is an architectural landmark featuring premier import and interior design stores, as well as shops with local art, jewelry, toys, apparel for the entire family, flowers, plus restaurants and cafes, and a neighborhood natural-foods store.
