Fun things to do in Tempe!

Legoland Discovery Center

Located in Arizona Mills Mall, Legoland discovery center is great for all ages. There is plenty of space for your toddler or crawler to play amongst huge blocks, or even for your teen to go on a few rides. Personally, my husband and I LOVE the Kingdom Quest Laser ride!

This amazing new splashpad at Kiwanis Park on Mill and Baseline is not only a treat for cooling you off, but it sounds like a rain storm as well! If you need to feel like you are in a thunderstorm without the danger, this park is great for kids big and small!
