Most Popular Area Attractions

Arizona State University

Founded in 1885, Arizona State University is one of Arizona's three major universities. Originally named the Tempe Normal School, ASU is located in Tempe, a charming city just east of Phoenix. ASU now boasts one of the largest enrollments of the public universities in the United States, and fields competitive athletic teams in all the major sports. Known as the ASU Sun Devils, teams compete in the Pac-12 conference.

During the winter and spring months, head to Packard Stadium and take in a college baseball game. From September through December, college football fans visiting Tempe are sure to visit Sun Devil Stadium, home to the Sun Devils football team. Visitors staying at any of the Best Western hotels in central Arizona often make the trip to Tempe for the hard-hitting action of Sun Devil football.

ASU is quite expansive. The Tempe campus holds a bulk of the student body, with the Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, and West campuses holding the rest. Feel free to take a stroll through the Tempe campus and check out the Gammage Auditorium, hosting live performances on a regular basis.

Oceanside Ice Arena

The Oceanside Ice Arena might surprise you – it's not found on either of the coasts, but in Tempe, a fun and vibrant city east of the Phoenix metro area. Home of the Arizona State University hockey team, Oceanside Ice Arena is one of the few ice skating rinks in the Phoenix metro area and Tempe. 

Founded in 1989, the Oceanside Ice Arena hosts a number of different leagues and public skating events all year round. Offering both youth and adult leagues, the Oceanside Ice Arena is a top destination for hockey players and fans in the state. There are instructional leagues, semi and full competitive leagues, too. Visit the Oceanside Ice Arena on your next visit to Tempe. 

Packard Stadium

Plan a visit to Arizona and head to Tempe, the fun and vibrant college city east of Phoenix. Once there, be sure to explore Packard Stadium. Home to the Arizona State University Sun Devils baseball team, Packard Stadium opened in 1974 and seats 7,875 fans. It features an all natural grass surface and is owned by the university. 

ASU baseball games are officially played on Bobby Winkles Field, the playing surface at Packard Stadium at Brock Ballpark. The field, stadium, and ball park are all named in honor of former ASU baseball coaches William Guthrie Packard, Jim Brock, and Bobby Winkles. On your next trek through the desert, head for Tempe in the spring and catch an ASU baseball game at Packard Stadium. 

Sun Devil Stadium

With a seating capacity of over 70,000, it’s no wonder Sun Devil Stadium is home the Sun Devils of Arizona State University. Found in central Arizona on ASU’s main, Tempe campus, the stadium neighbors Wells Fargo Arena.

Sun Devil Stadium also hosts graduation commencements, holiday events, and for a while there, the NFL Arizona Cardinals – before moving to University of Phoenix Stadium. Constructed in 1957, the stadium is found easily thanks to its other neighbor, A Mountain.

Tempe Diablo Stadium

Tempe Diablo Stadium is the Spring Training home for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team. Located in Tempe, near Arizona State University, this wonderful facility is an ideal location to enjoy the Cactus League games. The stadium's central Phoenix location, is approximately ten minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport and many valley attractions.

Bring your golf clubs to enjoy an afternoon of golf at the ASU Golf Course or Ken McDonald Golf Course. Relax at the Tempe Town Lake or stroll through the nearby Papago Park. Check into a local Best Western guest room to stay close to the games, as well as the variety of shops and restaurants along Mill Avenue.

Wells Fargo Arena

After opening originally as the Arizona State University Activity Center, the Wells Fargo Arena, as it's known today, is home to the Arizona State University men's and women's basketball teams. It also hosts many graduations and ceremonies from the different colleges at ASU. It's a landmark in Tempe and the eastern region of Phoenix metro.

Along with basketball, Wells Fargo Arena is home to other ASU sports like wrestling, gymnastics, and volleyball. At an original cost of $8 million to build, Wells Fargo Arena still stands today and an achievement in architecture and local pride. It was 1997 when the venue was officially changed to Wells Fargo Arena. You'll find Wells Fargo Arena on the ASU campus, just north of University Drive and west of Rural Road.
