    A college town with outdoor appeal

    Tempe is the proud home of Arizona State University, and the “A” is even emblazoned on one of the region’s most prominent geological features. Sprawling close to Phoenix, it’s a good base for seeing the buzzing capital of Arizona. Yet, Tempe itself also has plenty of attractions to keep you busy, and there are Tempe vacation rentals to suit all needs – whether you’re after a spacious family home with large kitchens and gardens, or a sleek condo complex for a romantic city break. Just be sure to bring the sun cream, because they don’t call the greater Phoenix area the Valley of the Sun for nothing.

    Adventurous days and exciting nights in Tempe

    The shimmering focal point of the community is Tempe Town Lake. This wide and placid expanse of water is the place to be on sunny afternoons. You can go walking or jogging around Tempe Beach Park, enjoy a picnic with views of the sun-speckled water, catch a performance at the amphitheater, or head out onto the lake itself on a boat. Kids will love splashing around in the water features of the local playground, while grown-ups should keep themselves looking good for an evening of fun in the Mill Avenue quarter. This is a hub of shops, restaurants, brewpubs, sports bars, and all-round late-night hedonism, so prepare to stay up past your bedtime.

    Artistic escapades in Tempe

    Temple vacation rentals let you soak up the local arts scene, and culture-vultures should pay a visit to the Tempe Center for the Arts. This sleek, contemporary landmark puts on a fascinating, ever-changing array of exhibitions throughout the year, as well as live performances. You can also take in big, dazzling shows – including Broadway musicals – at ASU Gammage. The area also has your retail needs covered, thanks to the outdoor mall known as Tempe Marketplace. Here you can shop one minute, and catch live music the next – it’s a whole day out in itself.

    Snowbird season in Tempe

    This part of the United States is blessed with radiant warmth throughout the year, though things can possibly get a bit too hot during the height of the summer. You can do as the snowbirds do, and book your Tempe vacation rental for winter. While others battle rain and snow elsewhere, you can be sunning yourself in Arizona in December and January. That said, spring is another fine time to make your trip to Tempe.

    Hilltops and exotic plants in Tempe

    Some call it Tempe Butte, some call it Hayden Butte Preserve, and most locals just know it as A-Mountain. Whatever name you opt for, this volcanic outcrop is a must for anyone with a passion for hiking. Not only is it adorned with an iconic “A” for ASU, it also rewards hikers with panoramic views of Temple and the Papago Mountains. Look out as well for ancient rock carvings left here by the Hohokam people. If you want to explore the wider Arizona landscape, you can hop across the Salt River and experience the Desert Botanical Garden, where you can walk amid rare agave and cacti, and see colorful birds a-plenty.
