Tempe

Tempe

Home to Arizona State University, Tempe contains the energy that you would expect from a college town and the attractions that you’d expect in the perfect vacation destination. Tempe is located in the heart of the Greater Phoenix area, just minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Visitors can easily experience the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, with Papago Park to the north and South Mountain Park to the south. The city attracts active sports fans and athletes, families looking for a reasonably priced getaway, travelers with ties to the university, fun-loving festival attendees and lovers of visual and performing arts.
