Situated directly Southeast of Phoenix, Tempe is much more than a suburb to its big city neighbor. With a population of under 200,000 people, it is a unique mix of residential neighborhoods, busy corporations, recreation and even manufacturing which all combine to create an important center for commerce and a great lifestyle.
As home to Arizona State University, a large number of technology companies, and such companies as Us Airways, Motorola, and Chase Bank Card Services, there is a very dynamic feel to this Southwestern city. Since ASU is the largest university in the country, and has several campuses within Tempe, it can truly be called a college town.
Many of Tempe 's attractions are connected with the university. The Gammage Auditorium books in international talent as well as Broadway show type theatre events. There are various museums located on campus which are worth visiting. If outdoor lifestyle is important to you, your Tempe apartment will not be far from one of the many parks or recreational areas.
Tennis courts, golf courses, and 150 miles of bike trails are found in the Town Lake area. The Insight Bowl is an annual football event and is accompanied by a huge city block party on New Year 's Eve. Night and day, there is much to see and do in Tempe.
Cereal Only Restaurant
Once in your Tempe apartment, you'll start exploring the many types of cuisine that are available. There's virtually every type food but as with most Southwestern cities, Mexican is the most popular cuisine. Try La Fonda where the prices are low and the food is amazing. Cereality is an interesting concept restaurant on the ASU campus.
Every dish served there is based on cereal. If that isn't for you, there are plenty of steak places and international types of food available in most areas. The Mill Avenue area has the most concentration of restaurants and bars.
The college aged usually congregate there at places like Fat Tuesdays or The Library. These places are crowded seven nights a week so any time you feel like getting out of your new Tempe apartment, there will be something to do. There are many places that offer outdoor or patio sitting or if its sports you want try the Tavern on Mill with its 30 monitors for keeping up with your favorite teams.
