Fodor's Review

Named for the landmark Hayden Flour Mill, this is one of the Valley's favorite walk-and-shop experiences. Directly west of the Arizona State University campus and just steps from a light-rail stop, Mill Avenue is an active melting pot of students, artists, residents, and tourists. Shops include some locally owned stores and mid-range chains, as well as countless bars and restaurants. The Valley Art Theater is a Mill Avenue institution and Tempe's home of indie cinema. Twice a year (in early December and March/April), the Mill Avenue area hosts the Tempe Festival of the Arts.
