Love relaxing near the water but still near the city? Take a trip to Tempe Town Lake, and its surrounding areas provide enjoyable activities (TEMPE CENTER FOR THE ARTS). Tempe Town Lake is known for its mesmerizing sunset and is one of the most visited places in the east valley of Arizona. Visitors stay to spot wildlife, birdwatch, and kayaking.

Do you have your Arizona fishing license? Tempe Town Lake is a delightful place to go fishing.
