By far Tucson’s best, most-distinctive and most-popular boutique shopping district, Fourth Avenue stretches north from downtown along its eponymous boulevard. More than 100 stores line the “Ave” and side streets, almost all of them local or regional. Among the most interesting are How Sweet It Was (419 N. Fourth Ave.), a vintage clothing store whose compass goes all the way back to Victorian times; Toxic Ranch Records, an eclectic music store (424 E. 6th Ave.); WGH Woodworking, a furniture maker specializing in Southwest woods such as mesquite (419 N. Herbert Ave.); and Creative Ventures Craft Mall (522 N. Fourth Ave.), an indoor flea market—style mall featuring everything from regional foods such as jalapeno jelly to Mexican folk art. Dozens of small restaurants offer everything from pizza to pastrami, and the Historic Y Theater (300 E. University Blvd.) is the home of Tucson’s avant garde Rogue Theatre company.
