Dominated by the Hohokam Native American nation until the 15th century the Phoenix valley began to be occupied by settlers in the years following the Civil War. After the establishment of Fort McDowell in 1865, the settlement of Hayden’s Ferry, about 25 miles southwest on the Salt River, grew up out of the Sonoran Desert. The name of this important focal point on the river was later changed to Tempe when the English adventurer Darrell Duppa suggested the area resembled the Vale of Tempe near Mt. Olympus in Greece. In 1885 the territory of Arizona picked Tempe as the site for a school which would later become Arizona State University. Today, Tempe is a bustling suburb and university town just a few miles from downtown Phoenix.
A Tempe tutor can guarantee that you’ll be ahead of the curve so there’s time for the many attractions and activities in Phoenix’s Valley of the Sun. Tempe offers opportunities for those with cultural, historical, entertainment and outdoor interests. Well known for its support of the arts the city is the home of the Tempe Center for the Arts, a state of the art facility located on 17 acres next to Tempe Town Lake with terrific views of Camelback Mountain. The center features museums and galleries as well as providing a venue for a wide range of events including theater, performing arts and live music. It also hosts the annual Spring Tempe Festival of the Arts in April and the Fantasy Lights Boat Parade featuring fireworks and visits with Santa in December. For history buffs, the Hayden Flour Mill tells the history of the Tempe area and the Charles Trumbull Hayden House is the oldest continuously occupied building in the valley, dating back to the 1870’s.
As with many university towns Tempe offers a vibrant nightlife with outstanding restaurants and bars. TripAdvisor.com ranks Top of the Rock as among the best eateries in Tempe.

And, of course, Tempe is home to over 100 Mexican restaurants with Serrano’s on Rural Road boasting an excellent reputation. In the spring the entire valley comes alive as Major League Baseball invades with 15 teams playing training games in March and early April. Tempe is the second home of California’s Angels who play in 9,000 seat Tempe Diablo Stadium right off Interstate 10.
For those interested in the outdoors, Tempe Town Lake features activities for kids and adults alike. For kids, the lake and beach park is home to the one-acre Splash Playground. The lake is also home to a 5,000-seat amphitheater for concerts and outdoor shows. For hikers, nearby Papago Park hosts four different walking trails, all relatively flat and easy. For those more fit and adventurous, Camelback Mountain is a short drive away. The mountain, shaped like the hump of a camel, is a grueling three-mile hike gaining over 1,500 feet of elevation.
