Tucson Retail Therapy

June 28, 2022

Recentering under the Sonoran sun is a summer must; however, after hiking in the desert and exploring unique caverns, it may be time to rest from the rays and switch up your schedule. Recharge with the help of retail therapy and make space in your suitcase for souvenirs!

Conveniently located down the street from Westward Look, rests a Tucson favorite. La Encantada takes pride in offering 60+ exclusive stores and restaurants to the Southern Arizona region. Enhance your shopping experience surrounded by enchanted hacienda-style architecture making up the courtyards and gardens. Aside from retail and eateries, La Encantada hosts an array of special events. On select dates, grab a yoga mat and practice your breathwork in the courtyard during a serene Moon Glow 520 yoga session. If you happen to be in town for a “The Store Is Yours” event, this unique opportunity allows shoppers to rent out a store for a private registry tour, while sipping on espresso and getting VIP treatment. La Encantada also hosts philanthropic events throughout the year, like the Art Supply Drive from now until August 31st, allowing shoppers to donate various art supplies to benefit the homeless youth of Pima County.

Alive with vibrant college-town energy, Main Gate Square is comfortably disguised around the popular University of Arizona. This retail hub houses some of the town’s most delicious coffee and lunch spots, in addition to trendy boutiques, beauty bars, and museums. Main Gate is home to The Ben's Bells Project; 20 years of kindness in the form of ornaments that are handcrafted by volunteers and can be found all over the world. Head to the Square if you’re looking for art walks, live music, special events, and libation tastings.

Book your stay now with Westward Look and enjoy the exclusive Summer Escape deal that includes a $50 daily food & beverage credit.
