Reason #4: Outdoor Activities
If you love the outdoors, Tempe offers a slew of options. You have access to multiple hiking trails throughout the valley, clean and easy-to-access public parks, and countless pristine golf courses. Not to mention, Tempe Town Lake is a central hot spot for festivals, converts, and even paddle boarding!

The transition from college student to young professional can often be a culture shock. Luckily, the Tempe population is a fun mix of college students and recent grads.
Reason #2: Low Unemployment Rate
Tempe’s unemployment rate is lower than the national average, at 3.6%**, which means opportunity for employment post-graduation is strong. It certainly helps that Tempe borders Phoenix, the 6th largest city in the United States!
Reason #1: Freedom Mortgage
