Less than a mile from central downtown Tucson is our vintage two bedroom one bath bungalow. It is a detached single family home of approximately 900 sq ft. The walls of the original home are mud adobe. The floors are wood and concrete. The windows are vintage wooden sash, some with original glass. The recent remodel added concrete floors, a modern kitchen, washer and dryer, and a modern bath. It is centrally heated and air conditioned. Each bedroom has a king size bed. Both front and back yards are fenced. In front is a covered porch. In the back is a covered patio overlooking the garden.
Within a mile you will find libraries, restaurants, theaters, museums and Tucson's Convention Center. Buses stop at the corner and go directly to the Ronstadt Transit Center in central downtown. The new Sunlink Streetcar can be caught by walking three blocks North to Cushing Street, then left down the hill to Granada. Running and biking paths are also nearby, including The Loop, a 130 mile loop of paths looping Tucson: http://webcms.pima.gov/government/the_loop/ .
Golf, casinos, national parks, the University of Arizona, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, hiking and mountain biking are a short drive away.
About an hour by car is Arizona's wine country in Sonoita and Elgin, the Mt Lemmon Ski Valley, Kartchner Caverns or Nogales, Mexico (be sure to bring your passport).
A bit further by car you can visit Tombstone, the Town Too Tough to Die, and Bisbee. Both are old mining towns.
