Extremely crowded day today, annual 4th Av street fair. Mostly, a lot of over-priced garbage and heart-stopping food but if you like that, you'll love this. Did catch a band and one good guy singer and one so/so gal singer but I imagine it changes throughout the day. There are a lot of restaurants and wine places down here and... More

We walked along Fourth Avenue on a weekend evening, during the day, and on a Sunday night. Always different. Different crowd, different atmosphere, but always fun and interesting.

Fourth Avenue has been around for decades. This street has lots of eclectic shops, eateries and weirdos. Fourth Avenue is just down the street from the University of Arizona campus. Go check it out...you'll find some good grub around here...especially the Greek restaurant tucked back off the Avenue.

If you like seeing "FOR LEASE" signs, used clothing stores, one nice souvenir store and a few eateries, enjoy getting lost on your way to 4th Avenue in Tucson. Tucson has many great venues for visitors but this is not one of them

Fourth Ave. is close to the University of Arizona and part of a funky neighborhood. The stores are just eclectic: consignment, south western, occult, clothes, touristy.... all can be found on 4th Ave. The recently introduced trolley car is a nice mode of transportation to get around. The place is usually full of young people and tourists. An interesting place... More

Held several times during the year, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair is worth a visit. Numerous vendors line the streets, offering any kind of craft or product you can imagine at this type of event. Of course, there are plenty of food vendors and the people watching is fun too. Based on experience, you should arrive early in the day... More

If you are a fan of the 60's and 70's a trip to Fourth Avenue is for you. All sorts of small shops and eateries, featuring everything you could want or see from that era in our history. Go ahead; take a stroll back in time. you won't be disappointed.

There are great stores/bars/ etc. Prices are reasonable. We also liked the pizza joint on 4th. Wish there were more cabs in the area.

This is a great place to wander around and kill a couple of hours with visitors. Check out Mabel's; it's not really a kitchen store - it's more like a really cute gift shop, and Antigone Books is right next store - two winners! I also love the B-Line and Epic cafes.

Dozens and dozens of street vendors. Most prices for items are fairly reasonable. Expect lots of people to be wandering around. This tour is a LOT of walking. Lots of fun, though.
