Congress St.

Downtown Block Party

In the city's cultural hub- in and around Congress Street-residents and visitors enjoy the rich diversity of old and new: modern urban dwellings sit next to colorful barrios and historic sites; sidewalk cafés, restaurants, vintage and music shops are neighbors to theaters, live music venues, and art galleries. The Tucson Museum of Art and Museum of Contemporary Art share outstanding collections from all eras, while live shows at the historic Rialto and Fox theaters draw music lovers of all genres. Hotel Congress-built in 1919 and once the hideout of John Dillinger-boasts an award-winning restaurant, a renowned club, and even a resident ghost. Weekly, monthly, and annual events around downtown keep the city buzzing.
