Maravilla Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
New single and two-story southwestern style homes in Maravilla border the greens of Tucson National. The neighborhood provides great mountain views and convenient access to shopping, recreation, and cultural sites. It is bound by West Star Trails Drive and Tucson National in zip code 85742.
With two state parks within a short drive, Maravilla residents have many recreational opportunities. One is Picacho Peak State Park, an excellent place to see spring wildflower displays and a good, though rugged, place to hike. The unusual mountain formation, a landmark for thousands of years, has marked the way for stagecoaches and those on their way to California to get rich during the gold rush. The Anza Expedition passed through here in the 1700s.
Tucson has many higher educational institutions, adding vitality and resources for the community. Among the largest are the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. Pima Community College is located near the downtown historic and cultural district.
The Tucson Museum of Art is in this district. Five homes dating to the 1850s house some of the Museum’s finest collections. For example, the J. Knox Corbett House is a mission-revival home furnished with American Arts and Crafts pieces. Art of the Americas can be viewed in the Stevens/Duffield House.
Tucson is a city of festivals and outdoor events. A favorite is held in El Presidio Park. This week-long fall festival is one of the largest in the southwest and features ethnic food, music and dance, folk artists. Cinco de Mayo is another popular event. For classical music lovers, the Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival is a nationally recognized week-long event.
There is great shopping in Tucson, too. Intimate galleries in the downtown historic area specialize in southwestern art and antiques. Upscale malls such as La Encantada or Foothills Mall are nearby.
