    Fun at all times but several times a year, Mill St is closed and it and adjoining streets are closed as they host the Tempe Arts Fair, a lively collection of hundreds of booths with wares that run to the extremes. There are musicians and the ever-present food vendors to round out the experience. Mark it down in your calendar-big fun!

    I've always enjoyed visiting this site when I'm around town. But now that they have developed it, especially the beach and small boating area on the north side, it's even more appealing. Locals like to roller blade, cycle, and skateboard here. The bike path goes on for quite a ways. Though there is free parking, it does get busy and you might have to park elsewhere and walk over.

    Lovely campus near Tempe Town Lake. Great Sun Devils Sports. We attended both a football and a basketball game. Loved the jumbotron intro to the football game, and the "curtain of distraction", at the basketball game. Great entertainment. Close parking at both games in parking decks. Students and parents both were having a great time here.

    First time visit was in 2020 after just moving to the area. Pleasantly surprised at how clean the facility was. It wasn't crazy crowded and we were able to see everything we wanted. All of the animals were out doing their thing and the wife was actually able to get a little closer than normal to the otters because of the worker doing a Q&A. There are also really neat displays outside of the aquarium. We walked around the Titanic artifact museum which had a bunch of items from the ship. Very neat if you enjoy that history. Parking was pretty easy, I'd say the only downside is the price is a bit high for the size of the aquarium. We had walked around and saw most everything in just a few hours.

    Huge mall. I personally liked shopping at this mall shopping for something more formal as they have few dress shops, where you can look for prom, bridal, and formal dresses. Can be overwhelming as it is huge. WEAR COMFY SHOES if you are planning on a long time here. OH and stop at puppies and love, say hi to the cute pups.

    This is one of the best parks in the area with lots to see and do. In summer they have movie nights from the pool. It’s popular and for good reason.

    A must-do if staying in Tempe/Phoenix. Terrific, short hike, only slightly-difficult if you’re in shape. Great views of The Valley

    Another great location in the Tempe area to enjoy the outdoors, exercise and see some unique landscape. Most of the hiking trails were elementary, but you can get challenged a bit if you want to climb to the top of the rock formations and get pictures. For me, this is what vacation and getting away is all about - enjoying the unique aspects of an area. There is nothing like this anywhere else.

    We loved this park. The views are awesome. We got free tickets from a friend to see the Angels play. We found free parking on the street a short walk away. Park is in a nice area.

    I took the CCW class yesterday and I was very impressed. I've been a Corporate Trainer for 10+ years so it's hard for me to sit through any presentation without critiquing it. My instructor, Steve, did a great job of making the class informative and entertaining at the same time. I loved the fact that he was willing to share stories about his 39 years of Law Enforcement and answer any questions we had about the law. I highly recommend this class to everyone! I'm looking forward to taking more classes.

    Wednesdays is Walk-in Wednesdays - hear local musicians perform two numbers...bar open, check out the box office for performances and don't forget to tour the art gallery. Great view of Tempe Town Lake, wonderful place for photos, happy hour at sunset

    Went to watch a Broadway Musical Fiddler on the Roof last night at the GAMMAGE AUDITORIUM and loved the whole experience. We were at the second tier and it was perfect for the sound . This Auditorium was designed by Franck Loyd Wright and the seats in the row in front of us even if they were tall did not disturbed us . It was full and loved the Show.
    We park at the Graduate Hotel nearby and arrived 5 pm for the show at 7 30 pm. The show last 3 hours
