Enjoy going to Tempe Marketplace for shopping and dining. The movie theatre is and grounds are always clean which is a huge plus. Not the best place to go when it's the dead of summer because it's all outdoors shopping.

Tempe Marketplace has great options for families to eat or shop. Really close to ASU Golf course and easy to get in and out. Lots of parking though veey little shade in the hot sun. Music even in the parking lot and outside shopping/gathering places made it a fun spot to hang out while we were in Tempe.

Great area, near lots of really nice places to eat and they have lots of "hip" stores like JCPenney and old navy and Target! Nice atmosphere as well, handicapped parking, and they have it lit up nicely at night and they play cute music outside!
