Acaso Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Acaso neighborhood of Tucson is in the 85741 ZIP code, on the far north of the valley floor. The neighborhood pioneered the area, before the newer developments filled the surrounding desert, and has kept the nostalgic look of the original buildings of the city. The skyline between the Safford and Pusch peaks has no shortage of inspirational views.
There are two names for the street this neighborhood encompasses, reflecting the rich history of the area and the city. The neighborhood consists of a strip of homes that face North Cam De La Tierra, although North Pepper Tree Lane is still technically the name of the gravel roadway in front of the homes.
To the north, the residents can play a relaxing afternoon of golf at the Tucson National Golf Course. This 18-hole course stretches over 7,262 yards of greens, sand, and lakes for a 72 par. The Oracle Plaza Blocks retail area is to the west and contains a TJ Maxx; Schlotzsky’s Deli; and a Bed, Bath & Beyond.
The centerpiece of the Silverbell Regional Park is Silverbell Lake, south of the Acaso neighborhood. Residents who are hiking enthusiasts enjoy the Saguaro National Park at Picture Rock, to the west. Both parks are within 10 miles of the neighborhood.
The old, dusty North Pepper Tree Lane is the only walkway through the neighborhood. Pedestrians should exercise caution, taking into consideration that it is still a functioning roadway.
Tucson is a bicycle-friendly city with many of the major roadways around the neighborhood allowing space for bike lanes. For the eco-minded traveler, the public transportation routes of 412, 203-X, and 61 connect the neighborhood to the rest of the city. Interstate 10 to the west offers access to nearly any part of the city in moments.
