Fall is the perfect time to visit Arizona. The weather cools off, but not so much that you need a jacket, there’s pumpkin spice everything, and in Tempe, fall means the start of the event season. Starting in September, enjoy fun-filled outdoor festivals, art exhibitions and Broadway performances.

Make a long weekend out of it by staying in one of Tempe’s hotels, located near Downtown Tempe, the ASU Tempe Campus and shopping at Arizona Mills. Visit www.tempetourism.com to plan your getaway.
