The Marriott in the hills outside of the city is the best hotel to stay at. The Hi-Fi is the frattiest club/bar, with a good scene for football. Party between 4th Ave and 6th Ave, as well as University Ave. Amy's Donuts, ZineBurger, and No Anchovies are all great places to visit.
Dante's Fire: Fun spot! The owners are really nice and manage to make the food taste great. The pasta was to die for, especially when made by chef Ken Foy. The fact that the restaurant has been here for 7 years makes me feel like they really are intune with the community.
Pasco's Kitchen and Lounge: Located on a very busy street, this collegetown restaurant strays away from the undergrads and adds some class to an otherwise party heavy strip. Without a doubt, Ramiro Scavo is one of the best chef personality interviews we've done! I went out and hung with the crew, who were absolutely great. Food was solid, and the drinks were even better. I'll go back here the next time I'm back in Tucson!
The Parish Gastropub: A creole and cajun restaurant that is rated the best in Tucson, rightfully so. Chef Travis Peters is self-taught and does food right. I’m not a master of Cajun cuisine, but the food seemed authentic and done really well. The people here were super grateful and helpful and it shone in the restaurant experience. I'd definitely recommend.
Food and drink sampled:
Go hiking! If you go during the monsoon season, there will be a lot of bugs that bite. It's a university town, so definitely go during the school year for a great time.
