Any one of several stations in Tempe allows for convenient travel, whether you’re commuting to work,  heading to the airport, taking in a concert or game, or dining out.

Currently, the light rail connects downtown Tempe to Sky Harbor International Airport, central and downtown Phoenix, and west Mesa, but extensions are planned for all over the valley.

Tempe’s 3rd Street and Mill Avenue station and 5th Street and College Avenue station form the gateway to Tempe Town Lake, ASU, and the popular Mill Avenue District, renowned for great eateries, bars, and shops.

Hayden Square, one of many Tempe condos near the light rail, are close to Mill Avenue and  within walking distance of ASU and Sun Devil Stadium. These stylish homes are are located less than a block from the 3rd Street and Mill Avenue Station.

If loft living is more your style, the Lofts at Orchidhouse, housed in the Brickyard on Mill, are one of the more distinctive Tempe condos near the light rail.
