Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Tempe
The main attractions for visitors east of Phoenix are Tempe's Mill Avenue and Tempe Town Lake. Tempe is the home of Arizona State University's main campus, so expect throngs of college students when school is in session. Tempe Town Lake is a man-made reservoir on the Salt River lined with high-rise buildings on the shore. Boating and fishing are permitted on the lake and nearby Beach Park is popular with cyclists, volleyball players, and joggers. Mill Avenue bars get busy on weekend nights. Twice a year, Mill Avenue is closed to vehicle traffic to accommodate the free Tempe Festival of the Arts, one of the Southwest's largest arts and crafts festivals. Visitors can sample food and beer, hear live music, or purchase work from local artisans.
