Tempe, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, always has a lot to offer in the way of family fun. My family has been lucky enough to visit in the past and we are never disappointed. Tempe is easily accessible from the Sky Harbor International Airport, there are many hotels nearby in all price ranges, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out my previous post, Family Things to Do in Tempe, AZ to give you more information on fun things to do in Tempe.
