Just off the I-10 and Congress in downtown Tucson, Arizona is a beautiful neighborhood with vibrant color and southwest flavor. Barrio Viejo is one of my absolute favorite places to visit when I'm in Tucson. I just love the Southwest / Mexican architecture and the colors here are simply stunning. In a world of ugly track housing and the idea that sameness is good, Tucson's Barrio Viejo has beautiful Mexicolor style all it's own. I love the rustic look of the vibrant homes and it is all visible within a short walking distance. If you're in Tucson and have some time, spend a bit in Barrio Viejo, it is wonderful.
