The Mill Avenue area can be crazy busy or casually comfy. 'Crazy busy' is when the Arts Festival is in town (Spring and fall) or when there is football going on at ASU. Due to the bordering university, it's busier in fall and winter than summer. Plus, summer is hot, so daytime strolls are not always temperate which keeps the... More

Mill ave is tons of fun, my significant other and I are regulars and love all the dining and are particular fans of the Urban Outfitters and other shopping establishments. Its beautiful to walk through at night, especially during the holidays, and when the weather is nice. They have several gluten free selections at many of there restaurants as well... More

Plenty of places to eat, bars, shops, historical buildings and usually events on the weekends. A great place to people watch or walk around Tempe Town Lake.

Its a college town so its a college crowd. Some good restaurants and bars. Also stores and other things to see. Is quite fun during Halloween as the streets and bars are filled with people dressed up.

This is a great place to come early and stay late. The laid-back atmosphere encourages browsing as well as buying in the many boutiques and specialty shops. The five/six block downtown area features shops and eateries on both sides of Mill with plenty of choices, plenty of shade and plenty of piped in music. Some favorites are Corleone's for Philly...

I really have enjoyed dining in the Mill Avenue District over the past several years. This place has quality restaurants, bars, and shops throughout the area. This district has a different vibe than other places I have been. Mill Avenue feels like West Coast meets College Town meets City Restaurant/Entertainment District of a Big City. I have not had a...

One of the few places where you can find bars, restaurants, shopping stores on the same area within walking minutes, it is not difficult to find a parking lot. If you don't own a vehicle you always can ride the light rail, to transport yourself to this location. I highly recommend coming to celebrate the October fest, the New year... More

The Mill Avenue area was a nice suprise. I had heard it was great but found it to be charming, cool with trees and misters and such a nice vibe for strolling and enjoying shops and restaurants.

Lots of places to eat and a few shops but it was just okay. I wouldn't make a trip back and would stick to the outlet mall.
