For me, Tempe is perfect. Awesome atmosphere, beautiful women all around you, great skating, lots of awesome bars, always sick hiphop shows coming through town. Yes it gets hot in the summer, but that's when you just head to the lake, river or a pool. Lots of really sick art galleries if you just head about 15 minutes into phoenix, if sports is your thing then you got 3 pro level teams. I can't picture myself moving anywhere else, ever again.
