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 football game at Sun Devil Stadium. Go on a shopping spree at Arizona Mills, Tempe Marketplace or IKEA. Cruise around Tempe Town Lake on a kayak or paddleboard or take a bike ride along Tempe’s 215 miles of pathways. 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. And if sunshine is what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Tempe. Go for a hike along a cactus-lined Sonoran Desert trail, dine on one of the many outdoor patios or simply lounge by the pool.
