Ultimate Guide to Summer in Tempe

Ultimate Guide to Summer in Tempe

Grab your sunglasses, sunscreen and a big smile because summer in Tempe is here to stay for a while! Relax by the pool during the day, take in the sights and explore the wonders of the desert after dark. Summer in Tempe means going on a sunrise hike, watching the kiddos play in a splash pad, catching some rays at a rooftop pool, or visiting one of Tempe’s many indoor, and thankfully, air-conditioned attractions. It’s the time of year when hotel rates are a steal and patio misters are on full blast to keep you cool while patio dining. We have the ultimate guide for visiting Tempe this summer – time to book your stay!
