Paseo Los Altos Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The neighborhood of Paseo Los Altos is upscale, with large and nice homes spaced out enough to allow for some privacy. This could be considered one of the “rich neighborhoods” of Tucson, yet the houses are more reasonably priced than in many other areas of the country. Most of the vegetation between the houses consists of natural bushes and shrubs, and the terrain is uneven. This gives the neighborhood a feeling of casual spaciousness. Though there are few trails in the immediate area, except those created by wildlife, hiking is available for those willing to explore.
Many of the homes have swimming pools to keep residents cool in this hot climate. Many businesses can be found in this area, and Casa Adobes Shopping Plaza is less than a mile away. There are also a number of quality restaurants that are nearby.
Paseo Los Altos is also around a mile from Tohono Chul Park. This park is the home of one of the most outstanding botanical gardens in the world. There are trails in this park, as well as informative tours on everything from the plants, birds, reptiles, and even edible flora that can be found in the Sonoran Desert. The park also has a tea house and shop for visitors and people from the neighborhood, alike. Tohono Chul has been in operation for over 25 years.
Quail Canyon Golf Course is also close to this neighborhood, offering great golf holes and tennis courts to the residents.
Paseo Los Altos is also near the Santa Catalina Natural Area, and within 15 miles of Saguaro National Park, adjoining Santa Catalina. Both offer numerous hiking trails flush with beautiful desert landscape.
