Vacationing in Tempe for Families

Travelers from cooler climes may want to investigate vacationing in a desert setting such as Tempe, Arizona over the coming winter months. Vacationing in Tempe gives families an opportunity to enjoy warm weather and a variety of activities in the Phoenix area.

Big Surf Waterpark is a great place to visit during a warm Arizona winter. The whole family will enjoy the wave pool. Toddlers can play on a giant seal and a giant turtle at Captain Cook’s Landing. There are water slides for small children at Bora Bora Bay in the Kool Kids Zone. Adventurous visitors will enjoy speeding down a giant water slide or soaring above the water park on a zip line.

Tempe Town Lake is another place to cool off during warm weather. Boating and fishing are permitted on the lake. Visitors can walk around the lake on paved paths.

Children can interact with marine life at SEA LIFE Arizona. This aquarium has a rockpool where children can hold crabs and touch starfish. Sharks, an octopus and a sea turtle are some of the other species of marine life to see here.

Activities at Main Event Entertainment include bowling, playing miniature golf, rock climbing and playing laser tag. People who are hungry after playing can enjoy pizza or burgers here.

Travelers can visit the Tempe Center for the Arts to see the Childsplay theater company perform plays based on children’s books.

The whole family will find stores they like at Arizona Mills Mall. Children will enjoy the Disney Store Outlet. Women will find footwear at Nine West and clothing at Lane Bryant. Footwear and clothing for the whole family are available at Marshalls. Tired shoppers can have a snack of pretzels at Auntie Anne’s or ice cream at Dairy Queen.
