Tempe, AZ

show info

Sprawled among the burnt orange buttes of the American southwest is Tempe, an affluent suburb of the greater Phoenix metro area. While it is home to American Airlines’ corporate headquarters and Arizona State University, Tempe’s glossy edifices never detract from the majesty of the surrounding Arizonian desert. The city’s ample outdoor offerings, like boating, golf and horseback riding are matched only by its indoor sporting attractions, including all the college football one could possibly desire.

<p>Tempe's searing sun makes it an ideal locale for water sports, and residents look no further than the Tempe Town Lake. Aquatic activities include kayaking, paddle boating, and even fishing: the lake practically offers all-you-can-eat rainbow trout, bass and tilapia, provided you have an Arizona fishing license. On cooler days, desert parks Papago and South Mountain beg for hikes, rock climbing and horseback riding. Those who like their activities more structured are better suited sticking to 18-holes among stunning rocks and plateaus, as found at Rolling Hills Golf Course.</p>

Tempe Center for the Arts

<p>In Tempe, much like the typical American high school, jocks reign supreme. However, even the folks who once got stuffed in lockers can have a place in the Arizonian sun. Enter the Tempe Center for the Arts, a city-sponsored architectural wonder showcasing visual and performing arts all year round. Notables include a weekly open mic night on Wednesdays, ballet under the stars, and performances by the Tempe Symphony Orchestra.</p>
