Mill Ave has an attractive and functional layout...it simply works and it is an important social element for ASU and Tempe, in general.

This is a great place to walk around and check things out. Lots of night life and so many different types of restaurants you'll have a hard time choosing. Fast food to sit down and spend a lot and everything in between, lots of desert place as well. Places to go dancing and places to listen to bands, a must... More

There are at least 2 dozen places to eat and drink. There is a decent variety of food although there are several choices for burgers, pizza, and beer. The area felt safe.

A friend and I took the rail glider to Mills Avenue twice during our trip. It was a short walk from the Rail Glide. We enjoyed our stroll visiting the local shops and the many restaurant choice for lunch. For NYE we enjoyed that they blocked off the streets and that there was a ton of great places to enjoy...

I stayed at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel in this district. Their staff was not nice to me. The shops I went into in this district their store employees where rude and not nice to me either. I noticed everywhere I went the white people where treated nice, but not me. I don't recommend anyone going here.

The Mill Avenue district is a fun spot to explore when there is an event going on in the city or when school is in full session. There are lots of bars and restaurants along the way. The water is always nice to see in the desert. The Tempe festival of the arts which takes place in the first week... More
