Things to do in Tempe
Tempe’s tree-lined, brick paved sidewalks that speak to its historic roots aren’t just there for aesthetics. They lead you places. They take you to the many things you can do in this culturally diverse community. Show up in jeans and a t-shirt, bike shorts or business attire, and you’ll feel like you fit in. A hospitable hang-out, Tempe attracts couples, families, singles, and, of course, our beloved college crowd looking for a piece of the spirited lifestyle.
Among the many things to do: kayak at Tempe Town Lake, watch spring training baseball games at Tempe Diablo Stadium; experience a live performance at ASU Gammage theatre or Tempe Center for the Arts; shop in Downtown Tempe, Arizona Mills, Tempe Marketplace, IKEA and beyond; attend an outdoor festival or event like the Tempe Festival of the Arts where you can purchase original work from as many as 400 artists. Tempe’s warm weather (330 sunny days each year) invites you to hike and bike the many paths and trails in and around town.
Make it an Extended Trip
Arizona is a place without equal, full of incredible natural wonders, one-of-kind places and a long and storied history you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Our parks feature everything from the grandest of canyons to acres of saguaros to remnants of our state’s ancestors. Our communities offer visitors incomparable experiences, from wine country to the Old West. And our Tribal lands invite you to witness the arts, traditions and way of life that’s been carefully preserved for thousands of years. Come see what makes Arizona so unique.
Grand Canyon National Park
Vast, magnificent and inarguably beautiful, the Grand Canyon is easily Arizona’s most distinguishable landmark – and a natural wonder that you simply have to see to believe. Stretching 277 miles from end to end, steep, rocky walls descend more than a mile to the canyon’s floor, where the wild Colorado River traces a swift course southwest.
This city of red rocks is favorite among Arizonans and visitors alike, and when you’re there, it’ll be pretty clear why. Red Rock State Park offers stunning trails and drives showcasing the area’s beauty. Jeep tours are another popular way to explore the colorful surroundings. In town, shops, artisans and restaurants all vie for your attention, and each are worth a look. At night, turn your eyes to the skies with stargazing tours by professional astrono
Monument Valley Tribal Park
If you’re a fan of westerns, chances are you’ve seen a lot of scenes shot in Monument Valley. One of the most photographed spots on earth, Monument Valley lies on the tribal lands of the Navajo Nation. These stunning sandstone formations rise up to 1,000 feet off the desert floor and feature rich, colorful layers of sand and rock that stand out against the blues skies. We recommend a Jeep tour guided by a member of the Navajo tribe, but you can also hike or camp in the park.
