About Tempe

Tempe History – The town was named Tempe in 1879. “Lord” Darrell Duppa, an Englishman who helped establish Phoenix, is credited with suggesting the name. The sight of the butte, the wide river and the nearby expanse of green fields, reminded him of the Vale of Tempe in ancient Greece. In 1885, the Arizona legislature selected Tempe as the site for the Territorial Normal School, which trained teachers for Arizona’s schools.  This eventually became Arizona State University.  

Prompted by Tempe’s centennial in 1971, Mill Avenue was revitalized into an entertainment and shopping district. Recent construction of the Light Rail system connects Tempe to the center of Phoenix making it an easy commute. Today, the City of Tempe, Arizona is well known nationally as the home of Arizona State University, the Insight Bowl and events such as the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & ½ Marathon and Ford Ironman Arizona. It is the seventh largest city in Arizona, with a strong modern economy based on commerce, tourism, education and technology.

If sunny days and starry nights are what you are looking for, Tempe has you covered. It doesn’t matter if you’re a history buff,  sports fanatic,  water lover,  golfer,  baseball spring training fan, gambler or  shopaholic. Tempe can provide an adventure for everyone.
