LGBT Travel

From its beginning, Tempe has exhibited a certain flair starting with its name, which was bestowed by a visionary Englishman “Lord” Darrell Duppa in 1879. If he happened upon Tempe today, he would be pleased to find a city that’s progressive, hip, with flair to spare, and just a hint of attitude. Tempe offers a blend of cosmopolitan culture and style, a welcoming spirit, scenic desert beauty, more than 330 days of sunshine and year-round activities.

  • See a Broadway show at the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright designed ASU Gammage or for something a bit edgier, Stray Cat Theatre is just the ticket.
  • Check out an exhibition of contemporary works of art at the ASU Art Museum.
  • Soak up some sun while attending a spring training game at Tempe Diablo Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
  • Tempe’s hospitable hotels range from resorts to all-suite properties. Many are located near METRO light rail lines, making it easy to access Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and LGBT nightlife and events in downtown Phoenix.
  • Channel your inner fashionista at Arizona Mills and Tempe Marketplace.
  • Exercise and work on your tan at the same time at one of Tempe’s many hiking, biking and running trails. Go boating at Tempe Town Lake or hang out poolside at your hotel.
