Tempe Town Lake
One of the major attractions in the greater Phoenix area, the Tempe Town Lake is a hit with the locals and tourists looking for a place to cool down and escape the heat. It is actually an artificial lake that occupies the dry bed of the Salt River. The lake has many quiet parks and green spaces around where families can relax and also provides recreational opportunities like fishing and swimming. You can also take a tour around the lake by renting a boat, canoe or paddle-boat.
If you like water but don't want to drive an hour or more then this is a great place to spend the afternoon. You can rent a paddle boat or go fishing. Have a picnic and watch the sail boats. Take a long walk with friends.
