Fall in Tempe is Festive and Fun

As the temperatures go down in the fall, Tempe really comes to life. Enjoy the sunshine by strolling along a cactus-lined desert trail, boating at Tempe Town Lake or driving through the city on a self-guided mural tour. Try delicious pumpkin beers and sweet treats, perhaps best enjoyed on an outdoor patio. And, buy one-of-a-kind works by local makers in Downtown Tempe. Plan your visit to Tempe and see why fall is our favorite season.
