Things to do in Tempe in the Fall

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.
