Tempe, Arizona is located in the heart of Metropolitan Phoenix. Refreshingly offbeat, Tempe is a college town with a personality all its own. It’s a welcoming destination with a spirited lifestyle where you’ll find fun-filled activities at every turn.
Cheer at an Arizona State University basketball game. Go on a shopping spree at Arizona Mills, Tempe Marketplace or IKEA. Cruise around Tempe Town Lake on a kayak or paddle board (note that due to dam construction, Tempe Town Lake will be closed for boating until mid-May 2016). See a Broadway show at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed ASU Gammage. Take in an art exhibition or performance at Tempe Center for the Arts or on the ASU Tempe Campus. Celebrate with a night on the town in historic and lively Downtown Tempe. Experience the Sonoran Desert by hiking along a cactus lined trail or simply lounge by the pool.
