Hughes Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Hughes neighborhood of Tucson, Arizona is the centerpiece of the tumultuous South Tucson Government. In addition, it appears to be a second homage to the influential citizen and Alderman Sam Hughes. Before the US Civil War, Sam Hughes had made Tucson his home. After Confederate occupation, Hughes left for his previous home in California, only to return to Tucson with the Union soldiers who liberated the city.
The area of the Hughes community settles between West 25th Street and West 26th Street to the north, the business and government buildings that face South 6th Avenue for the east and west boundary, and ends at West 29th Street on the south. Just south of the city of Tucson, the Hughes neighborhood has a central location brought by the expansion of the city around it.
Of the most notable landmarks, the Hughes neighborhood is the home of the South Tucson Government, and the University of Arizona is just to the north. To the east is the Randolph Municipal Golf Course, with the Pima County Rodeo Grounds to the south. Traveling west takes you to Sentinel Peak Park and the Santa Cruz River Park.
The Hughes neighborhood is a representation of the harmony of the government of South Tucson, with ornately decorated streets above the standard of the usual sidewalks. A center-of-the-street covered pavilion serves as the crosswalk to accommodate a large number of individuals at once and has a stylish southwestern flair.
For the environmentally conscious travelers to the Hughes neighborhood, there are several options. The wide sidewalks make traveling by foot comfortable and easy to see turning traffic. The bicycle-friendly city also has bike lanes for cyclists, and the Sun Tran Bus Line offers public transportation with routes 23, 8, and 421, which connect to the Ronstadt Transit Center to the north.
