Tempe Royal Estates is part of the city of Tempe which was called Hayden’s Ferry in the territorial times of Arizona. Hayden’s Ferry dates back to the 1860s when settlers made camp on the west side of Hayden Butte near the ferry that provided service across the Salt River. The name Tempe was adopted in 1879 after pioneer Darrell Duppa compared the valley to the Vale of Tempe in Greece.
The City of Tempe supports the Tempe Center for the Arts. Every year thousands of valley residents attend gallery showings, symphonies, dance performances and concerts at the architecturally stunning building overlooking Tempe Town Lake and Papago Mountain.
Tempe Town Lake hosts events throughout the year such as Ironman Arizona and Oktoberfest.
