Shadow Roc Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Shadow Roc is a community roughly 11 miles directly north of downtown Tucson, Arizona, within the Catalina Foothills and near the Casas Adobes area. It consists of several streets north of East Ina Road and west of North Skyline Drive. The zip code for this Pima County community is 85718. Some of the many communities situated near Shadow Roc include the Pima Canyon Estates, Skyline Foothills Estates, and Cobo Catalina Hills.
The nearby Santa Catalina Mountains are a benefit of the Shadow Roc community. The mountains not only provide beautiful views for residents, but the surrounding area provides many opportunities for outdoor recreation. Residents also enjoy beautiful views of the city and many nearby commercial offerings.
A little over one mile to the west of Shadow Roc is one of the largest retail areas in the foothills – Oracle Crossings. Situated in an affluent area, this relatively new outdoor shopping center features a Kohl’s, Razmataz, Sprouts, and Peter Piper Pizza, as well as some specialty shops and eateries. Two additional retail centers can also be found in this area.
Just south of Oracle Crossing and directly west of Shadow Roc is the Tohono Chul Park. This popular destination is a unique mix of nature, art, and culture. It has been recognized as one of the best botanical gardens in the entire world. It also offers art exhibits and cultural and educational events. There is a beautiful tea room for dining, and the gardens are popular for weddings.
Amenities abound here, and what can’t be found in the immediate area can likely be found just a short drive to the south, in downtown Tucson.
