Community Profile for Tempe, Arizona  Credit: Arizona Commerce Authority

 

Technology driven, Tempe is one of Arizona’s most educated cities. Tempe, incorporated in 1894, was recently honored as one of the most playful cities by KaBOOM!, is one of the top 20 Communities for Biking according to bicycling magazine and is the most walkable city in Arizona. Arizona State University and more than a dozen other colleges create an atmosphere of youthful exuberance, forward-thinking and business responsiveness.

 From graduating doctors from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, engineers from ASU’s Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and MBAs from the WP Carey School of Business, Tempe is every human resource recruiters’ dream when looking for top candidates. This knowledge-based environment stimulates creative-class workers and rewards companies that value innovation. Advanced business services, technology and manufacturing companies thrive in Tempe. Downtown is a creative corridor of technology companies and financing, public relations, marketing and advertising firms, along with more than 100 restaurants, nightclubs and retail shops. Google named Tempe its “Arizona Tech City” in 2014. Go Daddy, Silicon Valley Bank and hundreds of other technology companies are located in Tempe to share ideas and take advantage of the smart atmosphere.

Unlike most places, Tempe offers hiking, boating, fishing and outdoor fun within steps of Fortune 500 companies. Tempe Town Lake offers corporate locations on its shores. The lake is located in the middle of downtown Tempe, near ASU’s main campus. Kayak on your lunch hour, climb “A” Mountain, shop or dine. On weekends, take in one of the more than 100 annual events on Mill Avenue or around Tempe Town Lake, such as music festivals, Oktoberfest, Salsa Challenge, Rock n’ Roll Marathon Arizona and Ironman Arizona. Tempe also is home to Gammage Theater which hosts various Broadway shows.

Tempe has six public pools and splash pads, more than 40 parks, several golf courses, and numerous basketball, racquetball, baseball, soccer, volleyball and tennis facilities. Tempe hosts the Los Angeles Angels professional baseball team during spring training each year. The Metro light rail also runs through Tempe and connects the city to downtown Phoenix and Mesa.
