Tempe’s major claim to fame is the main campus of Arizona State University. More than fifty thousand students attend classes here, and the university’s impact on the local culture cannot be overstated. In addition to being the city’s largest employer, ASU serves as the cultural hub for Tempe, hosting guest speakers, art and history exhibits, concerts, and other events that draw students and non-students alike. Most of the nightlife and entertainment options in town are clustered near the ASU campus on the north side of town, with the areas further south mostly occupied by quiet suburban neighborhoods.

Just across the river from campus sits the massive Papago Park, a sprawling facility that provides access to the rugged beauty of the desert via hiking and bike trails, plus popular golf courses, a zoo, and a cultural center. In addition to ASU Sun Devil sports, Tempe is also home to the spring training facilities for the Los Angeles Angels. Partly due to the high population of college students, rentals in Tempe tend to be very affordable, making it an attractive community for commuters who work elsewhere in the Phoenix area.

Arizona Mills has nationwide retail chains such as GNC, Hot Topic, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, Nine West, and Neiman Marcus.
