Tempe Beach Park and Tempe Town Lake are two of the key attractions that bring pro travelers to a city named as a salute to Vale of Tempe in Thessaly, Greece. While the Greek counterpart is Apollo’s favorite place to be with his Muses, Arizona’s Tempe is the haunt of students of Arizona State University. Music fans would recognize alternative bands like The Refreshments and Gin Blossoms as part of the Tempe scene. For most visitors, a Tempe itinerary would mostly include hiking, rock climbing, and various outdoor recreational activities and water sports in the lake area. Planning a trip to Tempe later this year should always include booking a stay. Read about the 10 best Airbnbs in Tempe, Arizona.

1. Quiet place five minutes from everything (from USD 58)

A private studio awaits a single traveler or a couple with a massive love for the outdoors. The efficiency apartment is attached to the main house, but there is a private entrance. If you want to say hello to your host and their amiable pet named Noodle, then you’d have to catch them on their morning walk. From your private quarters, you don’t need to spend too much time getting to Tempe’s lake, mountain trails, and even the airport. Your lovely studio is five minutes from everything!
