The vibrant Arizona State University is located in this wonderful city set in the heart of the picturesque Sonoran desert! Our family goes here often when we want to be entertained - because Tempe always delivers!


We just finished Easter 2013, and it is weird that I just found through my pictures here on VT that we were there on same day 4 years ago! Haha...well, this time, I made a video! Hope you like this:


Tempe is home to triathlons, marathons, Broadway shows and college sports! Major attractions include the Tempe Town Lake, the Papago Park, and the Mill Avenue District ---- there is so much to write about and so just bear with me as I fill these pages with pictures and tips for visitors to Arizona....

Arizona State University

The college started in 1885, and now it has four campuses with more than 200 programs and majors, and with about 67,000 students! The Sun Devil Stadium was built on "A" mountain, where you can hike up to.

There's great shops and entertaining stuff along Mill Ave...and the campus also is also by the Gammage Auditorium which is a grand carousel-looking place designed by our very own Frank Lloyd Wright. Did you know his son helped design the Holy Cross Chapel in Sedona?

There is even a cool underground ASU Art Museum!
