Tempe, Arizona's fifth largest city, has successfully blended the dynamics of a high-tech business center and the fun and excitement of a resort city. Tempe began as a small agricultural community, but by 1960, the last of the local farms were quickly disappearing as Tempe grew to become a large modern city. The town boasts nearly 300 days of sunshine a year and the city's small college has grown and in 1958 the institution was renamed Arizona State University.

Old Town Tempe is a cultural center as well as the City's principal business district. The area offers premier cultural, shopping, and entertainment.
