Things to do in Downtown Tucson
Downtown Tucson is a world away from big cities like Phoenix or Los Angeles. Its elegantly restored historic streets are much more than just a beautiful place to wander and soak up the scenery. The locals call Tucson Celebration City, so when you start your adventure, don't be surprised when the streets come to life with festivals and parades. From the Fourth Avenue Street Fair to the Tucson Jazz Festival, you're sure to stumble upon events as you explore. Ride the SunLink StreetCar to get a grip on the Downtown area, then get started on a sightseeing tour. Don't miss the Presidio, which offers two centuries of history and the fabulous Tucson Museum of Art, and leave an afternoon for the Wild West entertainment at Old Tucson - the set for countless Hollywood westerns. Military fans will adore the Pima Air and Space Museum, which hosts 250 vintage planes, while Biosphere 2 at the University of Arizona is a unique ecological attraction, featuring plants from around the world in its incredible glass-frame biomes.
Arizona's Most Appetizing Destination
While historical attractions and the Old West have an undeniable appeal, there's something even more irresistible about Tucson, and that's its food culture. The city has received recognition as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy due to its unique fusion of ancient O'odham cooking with more modern Mexican cuisine. It's a blend that allows Tucson's eateries to offer dishes that you won't find anywhere else, from tepary bean salads to desserts sweetened with saguaro cactus syrup. When your stomach starts to rumble, make a beeline for 4th Street - the city's premier culinary district - and tuck into everything from massive beef and brie sandwiches to down-home Italian home cooking or gourmet tacos. And before you board your FlixBus bus to head home, make a date to browse the vendors of the Mercado San Agustin. Stuff your bag with ingredients to spice up your home cooking and spend the bus ride back dreaming about the dishes you'll create.

If you're up for a long evening, why not sample some local brews at pubs like the Surly Wench or hit the dancefloor at Zen Rock Night Club? You can catch major music acts at the Fox Tucson Theater or ditch indoor activities entirely and saddle up for a guided cycling tour of the city's after-dark hotspots. It's a great way to mix up Sonoran street food, historical tales and a bar or two to keep things relaxed. However you want to spend the evening, take a Flixbus to Tucson - you won't be disappointed.
Discover Southeastern Arizona's Outdoor Wonders
Tucson's charms don't stop at the city limits. In fact, venturing out into the desert is an absolute must. The city lies in a stunningly beautiful, endlessly fascinating landscape in the Sonoran desert, and there's so much for FlixBus passengers to discover outside town. For example, Catalina State Park is a true gem. Located at the feet of the Santa Catalina Mountains, it offers 5,500 acres of trails, and it attracts birdwatchers, hunters, cyclists, and hikers in abundance. There are the magnificent Kartchner Caverns, with their spectacular 'throne room,' or the even larger Colossal Cave Mountain Park, and you can get to know the region's beloved saguaro cacti at the Saguaro National Park. Hire bikes, lace up your boots, or take the wheel of a rental vehicle and get out into the Arizona wilderness to forget about the stresses of home. Tucson is the ideal place to do so.
