4th Avenue is part of the historic Pie Allen Neighborhood which is listed as a National Historic District. 4th Avenue has a number of interesting shops, bars, and restaurants to tempt you, or you can just enjoy walking down the street watching the people. On weekends and during special events a restored antique trolley runs on the Old Pueblo Trolley Line along 4th Avenue. As you walk down the road you may see people wearing gold polo shirts with a 4th Avenue logo on them. These are the 4th Avenue Ambassadors and are there to answer any question you may have and advise you on how to best enjoy your visit.
Tucson downtown is the cultural and historic heart of the city. There are many places to visit there - click here. Hmm... I was definitely too short there.
I was walking around the Tucson downtown. Skyline was not very spectacular (in comparison to San Diego I visited before) but quite interesting, I could say. Especially just before sunset.

Dedicated to the cowboys who would stabled their horses along the north side, next to the presidio wall. Houses were built over the site beginning in the 1860's.
Sorry I didn't get a better photo, but there was a gentleman sleeping right a foot of this statue and didn't want to disturb him.
It ia statue dedicated to the "Conquistadors"
The elephant is one of the most popular animals at any zoo. These elephants were pretty entertaining.
There is also an area set aside for the birds. I particularly liked the flamingoes. Not just because I am from Florida but because they are so pretty.
One part of the zoo is dedicated to the animals from South America; here you will see animals like an anteater, a caiman, and an ostrich. They also have a nice area for the polar bears.
Slightly disappointing compared to historic districts in other cities. This is primarily a residental neighborhood with a mixture of different period architectures.
