Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: With 1.3 million square feet of retail space to explore and over 100 shops and restaurants to choose from, Tempe Marketplace is the ultimate destination for Valley natives and out of town visitors. Delivering a refreshingly vibrant outdoor environment, complete with cozy fireplaces, unique water features and lush landscaping, the center provides an unparalleled interactive shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Dramatic lights and eye-catching laser elements create a modern and spirited atmosphere, yet the gathering spaces and entertainment areas make it a warm community hub. Conveniently located in the heart of the Valley at the Loop 101 and 202 crossroads, Tempe Marketplace is just minutes from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert.

They have live music on select dates, it's open so you can enjoy a nice summer evening, great to walk around. There's lots of parking and good places to eat.

My husband and I met friends at Smashburger a few days ago. The food and atmosphere was so enjoyable. My husband loves the roasted brussel sprouts. There are many healthy options for those who want chicken or salads, etc. The service was quick and friendly as well as professional. Will most definitely go again!

Tempe Marketplace is an open-air shopping center. No air conditioning while you walk between shops. You may need to hop on your car to get from one store to another. However, having a Barnes & Noble bookstore makes up for what it lacks. The Barnes & Noble bookstore here is well-stocked. They even carried numerous Pacific Rim: Uprising action figures.

Because this is one of those new shopping malls that are outside, it can be quite hot walking from store to store. Especially since this one, is rather large. It is extremely busy on the weekends and holidays and worth avoiding during those times. It has some anchor stores such as JC Penney, Nordstrom Rack, Cost Plus, and many more, but also some unusual smaller stores. However, the smaller stores come and go. The newest is Panera Bread which is yummy and has some outside seating for when the weather is tolerable.

We had some time to kill towards the end of our trip. Its an outdoor mall but even if you aren't shopping or grabbing a bite to eat (and there are lots of options for each) its just a neat place to walk around.
