Tempe is a fun college town. The main street, Mill Avenue, is an attractive street with dark green historical buildings, and rows of leafy trees lining the street. The Tempe Town Lake is a barren area, but nice at sunset, when the light reflects off the water. The bridge over the lake has delightful old-fashioned lamps. If you're hungry, try Gordon Biersch restaurant at 420 S. Mill Ave, where you can sit out on the balcony under the water misters and order beer samplers and tasty meals. At night the bars fill with students.
While in Tempe, check out the pretty, plant-filled campus of Arizona State University- take in a concert at the gorgeous Gammage Auditorium. Or take your kids in the summer to the Tempe Splash Pad, where they can run around in the nice, cool water.
From Highway 202 Eastbound, exit at Arizona State University. You will be on N. Scottsdale Rd. Turn right on Rio Salado Pkwy. Turn left on Mill Ave. There is metered parking along the street.
