The secret is out. Tempe, Arizona is one of the most affordable, fun cities in America! According to Bloomberg Business Week, Tempe is third in the country, just behind Ocean City, Maryland and Honolulu, Hawaii.
This list of 25 cities was based on “identifying affordable places with active downtown areas and cool atmosphere.” Therefore, the list includes several vacation areas and college towns where there is a higher percentage of restaurants and bars, and as a result, a very “social” atmosphere. The list was also compiled using data that reflects an affordable median home price.
It is easy to see why Tempe would be high on this list. For example, the Mill Avenue District holds over 47 eating and drinking establishments within just three blocks. Not included on the list is the vast choice of recreation opportunities, including 170 miles of dedicated bikeways, a two mile long lake, a mini-mountain, and several golf courses.
Come see what the buzz is all about and stay at Tempe Mission Palms - in the center of it all, just steps from Mill Avenue and all the fun that Tempe has to offer.
