Tempe: A Modern Arizona Suburb

While it may be tucked just east of Phoenix, Tempe is hardly a boring suburb. This growing city is a destination of its own—within its 40 square miles, you'll discover the nation's second largest university, a performance venue designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, a thriving downtown, and countless green spaces. As if that isn't enough, home prices in Tempe are surprisingly affordable, which makes it popular for buyers from all walks of life.

How to Live Like a Local

Top Local Highlights

Diverse Neighborhoods

Tempe is divided into four neighborhoods, all of which have their own unique flair. Downtown Tempe and McClintock are known for being close Arizona State University, and they're right in the middle of all the action. South Tempe and The Lake tend to be quieter, more residential communities where homes are larger and a bit more expensive.

Shopping & Dining

Tempe offers a vast selection of larger retail centers and locally-owned businesses from which to choose. Top favorites include Tempe Marketplace, Arizona Mills, and all of the shops on Mill Avenue. And whenever you work up an appetite, be sure to try Tempe's local flavors at restaurants like RigaTony's Authentic Italian Restaurant, Culinary Dropout, and House of Tricks.

Exciting Attractions

There's nothing quite like experiencing an ASU football game at Sun Devil Stadium, watching a show at Gammage Auditorium, or strolling through one of the city's 46 parks. When you live in Tempe, there's never a shortage of excitement, regardless of what you love to do! If you really want to live like a local, try spending an afternoon in Papago Park or sample some beer at Four Peaks Brewing Company

Career Opportunities

Tempe's ideal location near both Phoenix and Arizona State University create endless career opportunities in just about every field. The University is one of the city's major employers, but other top companies in the area include State Farm, Honeywell, Wells Fargo, and ExpressScripts. Advanced manufacturing, healthcare, and biotechnology are just a few of Tempe's key industries.
