One of the highlights of the downtown housing areas is the Willo Historic District. It is a popular destination to just drive through and see the homes. The annual 2012 Willo Historic District Home Tour attracts thousands of people each year because of this love affair with cool homes in this awesome downtown Phoenix location.
The Willo home tour is a self guided tour and lets you peek into some of the best houses as well as see the tree lined streets and there are also shuttle busses as well.
There will be 13 homes on the tour and the historic firehouse at 13th and Jewel will also be available for a tour. In addition to touring the homes, there is a LOT of excitement around the Willo street fair that will have food, artisans, music and more. Its a great way to spend a Sunday.

If you don’t already live in downtown Phoenix, here is an idea – TAKE LIGHT RAIL! Just a hunch, but I think it might just make the parking situation slightly better for you and your family.
