Tempe Arizona is full of culture, experience, and many fun options for food and drink! Everything you would need is very close and looking for fun new things to do comes easy in this city, for there is Tempe Town Lake to get some fun family water activities and fests thrown almost every weekend. If you are in the party mood Mill Ave is the hot spot with places to chill and others to party all night on the dance floor! There are many shopping locations, with Arizona Mills and Tempe Market Place being the two most popular.

Tempe is interesting for sure. The ASU campus/central location in Metro Phoenix make it very lively, young, and a hot bed/mecca for future jobs. Mill Avenue has tons of bars for the college kids, and you can find some divey places with young professionals. It does have a ton of traffic, but it is also connected by rail. It is for sure and by far the most progressive part of Phoenix. The neighborhoods are nice with historical homes. Not a whole lot to offer for outdoor activity, but its excellent for you bikers. Next best place for young people besides Scottsdale!
Tempe is bustling with young, goal-oriented minds. There's an entire city just on the campus of Arizona State University alone! From authentic Mediterranean food to hole-in-the-wall pizzeria's, there's nothing Tempe doesn't have. A beautiful park all over the city, you will constantly find active folks. Don't forget the beautiful crowds that appear during the forth of July, lined-up along Tempe Town Lake to watch the fireworks dance in the sky. Maybe you'll even catch the city up on top of A Mountain!
