Catalina Foothills

Healthy mix of upper-middle class and upper class Tucsonans from retirees to families, professionals

Located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains north of the city, the foothills offer some of the best views of downtown and are still only a 10- to 15-minute drive away. Rather than pave and concrete the desert landscape, the area has a minimalist feel with few sidewalks and narrow streets that wind through the hills. The mix of Southwest-style custom homes and subdivisions painted in muted browns and creams have been built to blend with the natural desert landscape. Front yards have natural desert landscaping, leaving them covered with saguaro cactuses, desert flowers and the occasional tumbleweed. The area is home to the best school district in the city, which has made it popular with families. It’s also got some of the city’s best restaurants and a growing number of art galleries and shops, all housed in upscale shopping centers.
