Sometimes the coolest cities are tucked behind the fame of a nearby, more well-known destination. Like how Brooklyn is totally overshadowed by Manhattan, but the locals know the best restaurants and hippest hangouts are found across the Brooklyn Bridge. Well, Tempe is the more authentic, hidden gem to the bustling desert metropolis that is Phoenix, and boy, are you in for a treat. With attractions, activities, restaurants, and the renowned Arizona State University campus, Tempe is like a cool drink of water on a scorching Arizona day. There's something for everyone here, whether you're passing through for work, play, or a college visit.
