I love the night life. There are plenty of bars and night clubs are plentiful.

There is also a few fishing spots I love to cast at.

The college students. There is the Arizona State University in down town.

I like Tempe because it's where I grew up. It's pretty central to a lot of places. The Phoenix Zoo and Downtown Phoenix are very close to Tempe as well. Tempe is home to Arizona State University too. There are lots of neighborhood parks and activities that happen year round in Downtown Tempe.

Favorite places are Tempe Town Lake. The neighborhoods in South Tempe are really nice. Some bad things are that so many people are moving here and there is a lot of development which is good for a city's growth but it has taken away the small town feel that we had here when I was kid.

There was alot to do here in Tempe. Parks the YMCA and amusement parks nearby. It's a nice beautiful fun city. There are alot of stores nearby and places to go shopping. It's hard to get bored because there is so much to do.

Castles and coasters is a great amusement park to go to. Everything is close by. People are very friendly. There is also beautiful scenery.
