Life in Tempe

Mill Avenue District

A destination by itself. As home to Arizona State University, Tempe has all the lively energy your would expect from a college town. Particularly one with almost 60,000 students. Mill Avenue is the hub of activity. It's the destination for the free- spirited in search for where it's all happening. The atmosphere in and around Mill Avenue can be best described as "alive".

Mill Avenue isn't just for college kids. It is a family-friendly kinda place that often gets blocked off to handle events and celebrations. This downtown district is uniquely pedestrian-friendly that captures an interactive crowd. With over 100 restaurants, a seemingly endless variety of nightlife spots, boutique shopping, and movie theatres combined with the adjacent Tempe Town Lake, Sun Devil Stadium and ASU Ganmmage Auditorium, people here will never run out of things to do.

Imagine red brick sidewalks. All lined with shade trees, turn of the century architecture that is still in use, outdoor dining areas and street entertainment, Mill Avenue is a great place just to people-watch. Bike and stroll the paths around Tempe Town Lake. Kayak the waters. Enjoy the annual events like the Tempe Festival of the Arts, the Tempe Festival of Lights and the Insight Fiesta Bowl Block Party, one of the America's most attended outdoor New Year's Party.

Conveniently located. The university and its dorms are within easy walking distance from Mill Avenue. High rise condos set next to the lake. And college football enthusiasts going to and leaving the game fill the streets. And with the Valley Metro Train, people can get from Tempe to Downtown Phoenix and places in between with relative ease making Mill Avenue and Tempe one of the most active hot spots in the Greater Phoenix area.

Come. Join the fun. Feel the energy.
