It’s easy to find people who love the Willo Historic District in Phoenix. And for good reason. Charming homes, great location and a lifestyle that fits people from many different walks of life. These are some of the reasons why the annual Willo Historic District Home Tour attracts thousands of people each year.
Many come to see historic properties that are nothing like the cookie cutter tiled roof, stucco exterior of some of our AZ neighborhoods.
For about $15.00, people flock to this self guided tour of Willo so they can peak inside these beautiful homes while walking the tree lined streets of this downtown Phoenix neighborhood.
This year’s Willo tour will showcase approximately a dozen homes. In addition to touring the homes, the Willo street fair will have food, music and so much more. Heck, even the people watching is worth the price of admission. It’s a really great way to spend a Sunday.

Do you want to get there the easy way? TAKE LIGHT RAIL: Seriously, why would you try to find a place to park when thousands of other people are looking for a spot, too?
As we have said many times before, the light rail is a great way to get to and from the Willo Home Tour.
The proceeds from the tour benefit the Willo neighborhood, the park and the overall community. This is an huge volunteer effort that ultimately benefits Willo and the surrounding areas.
“A variety of homes from Tudor to Spanish Revival - Bungalow to Ranch style homes dating from the 1920's through the 1940's will be on tour.” – Willo Home Tour
