The distinctive Overton Heights neighborhood has a true southwest appeal with upscale abodes and red-tile-roofed ranch homes. With walled courtyards, nearby open spaces, and a view of the Santa Catalina Mountains, the Overton Heights neighborhood is an oasis. Sidewalks, large palms, and mature shade trees make for pleasant walks. Many homes have in-ground pools.
Overton Heights is bound by West Overton Road along the south, with access via North Jersey Lane and North Cam De La Tierra in zip code 85742.
Golfers will be pleased to find so many courses so close to home. El Conquistador Country Club and Tucson National, both private, are less than five miles away. Crooked Tree Golf Course at Arthur Pack Regional Park is the closest public course.
Upscale shopping centers are also convenient. Foothills Malls is the closest, though La Encantada is only a few miles farther. Both cater to discriminating shoppers and provide quality restaurants. Shopping for authentic southwest arts and crafts can be done at the downtown galleries. Two popular choices are The Lost Barrio and Old Town Artisans.
Tucson festivals celebrate the diverse culture and long history of the area. The 8-day La Fiesta de los Vaqueros Rodeo features a parade, music, dancing, and of course, rodeo. The Cinco de Mayo festival is one of the best in the southwest, with music, arts, and food. The Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival brings a weeklong celebration of classical music. The festival has gained national recognition.
The downtown historic district combines cultural activities and entertainment with historic preservation. For instance, the Rialto Theater adds variety to the Tucson music scene while the Tucson Museum of Art houses exhibits in historically significant homes. Many buildings have earned National Historic Places designation, including the Pima County Courthouse.
