 Tempe 

Tempe is just east of Phoenix and the home to the Arizona State University Sun Devils.

Resting on the Salt River gives the desert city a scenic view. Events like Ironman Arizona and Rock n Roll Marathon take place here.

Tempe is also the host of spring training for the Anaheim Angeles who come and train here under the gorgeous weather.

Tempe Marketplace is a definite attraction with over 100 stores, pop-ups and laser shows it's a favorite amongst locals.
