Weekend in Tempe Itinerary


Day One


Start your morning with a quick, light breakfast at Library Rules with fresh brewed Stance Coffee and a house-made pastry.

Here over the weekend? Visit SunBar for weekend brunch with 1 cent bottles of champagne with your meal!



Head to Tempe Beach Park for an early afternoon of outdoor activities.

Refuel at some of the city’s most iconic restaurants:


Head back to the hotel early and freshen up to capture an iconic Arizona Sunset from Lucero – our rooftop restaurant. Go out on the town for a night at the theater. ASU Gammage is known to host broadways biggest titles like “Hairspray,” “Lion King,” “Annie” and more.


Day Two


Elevate your fitness on day two with your choice of fan favorites:

  • Visit our 24-hour fitness center, or request your in room fit kit at the front desk
  • Head to A-Mountain for a “must do” easy hike
  • Take a morning stroll on Tempe Town Lake
  • Explore the Arizona State University Campus including libraries & museums and quiet nooks

For breakfast:

  • Looking for something lite? Chop Shop or Daily Jam has got you covered
  • Indulge into one of the best breakfast burritos and tacos you have ever had at Fuzzy’s (we recommend their Chorizo burrito)

Biking in Arizona


After your morning activities, make a short drive over to Ghost Ranch for a Southwest-inspired meal that you won’t forget. Ghost Ranch made Food Network’s list for one of the Best Restaurants in Phoenix.

Take a scenic drive through the Papago’s before arriving at the Desert Botanical Gardens. The Desert Botanical Garden is home to thousands of species of cactus, trees, and flowers.
