While you’re in the area of the University of Arizona campus and are looking for more fun things to do in Tucson, be sure to continue walking west toward Main Gate Square. Main Gate Square is a great place to go for shopping, dining, and even a ride on Tucson’s oldest trolley!
Main Gate Square includes over twenty sit-down restaurants (we love Wilko!) plus a large selection of cafés and places for dessert like Caffé Lucé and Malibu Yogurt and Ice Cream. One fun place to check out in Main Gate Square is The Cereal Boxx, which serves, you guessed it, cereal from morning ‘til night! The Cereal Boxx serves fun blends of your favorite cereals plus offers many flavors of oatmeal, parfaits, protein shakes and smoothies.
If you are still searching for some UofA gear, Main Gate Square is definitely the place to go. You can go to the Main Gate Arizona Bookstore, Arizona Wildwear, or Campus Athletic to find some great UofA apparel. In addition to UofA clothes, Main Gate Square is also a hub for boutique clothing stores like Cry Baby Couture, Grand Central Clothing, and Finally Made.
Main Gate Square also contains the Ben’s Bells Open Studio for people to go and create pieces for one of Tucson’s favorite local charities.
In addition to shopping and dining, Main Gate Square also has a number of salons, including the Aveda Institute of Tucson, which not only offers a wide array of salon services but also is one of the leading cosmetology institutes in Arizona.
While it’s a fun place to visit during the day, we also love heading to Main Gate Square at night to grab a drink and enjoy the beautiful Tucson weather!
