“an evocative night experience”
Throughout the middle of the 20th century, Miracle Mile, Oracle Road, and Drachman Street were together known as Tucson’s “Miracle Mile Strip.” This was the northern segment of Tucson’s primary automotive corridor: the vehicular route into the city from the North, a crossroads for those traversing the nation on Routes 80 and 89, and an economic arterial that fostered development in several regionally popular architectural styles. For many, this defined their Tucson experience; for others, it shaped their first impression of the Old Pueblo. Swimming pools, flickering neon and lush grassy courtyards welcomed visitors to motels with names like La Siesta, El Rey, Frontier, and El Rancho. Restaurants served steak and music for under $2.00.
If you want to get some really good photos of this, the best time to go is really early in the morning, when there is no traffic around.
If your gonna visit Tucson, this is a good postcard pic pose in front of.
This was a waste of time. The real cacti are taller than the sign. The sign is in the median of a very port area filled with homeless. Not a place to be at at night. Thanks goodness we drove during broad daylight. And it was still sketchy.
