What is Tempe's Best-Kept Secret?

We Asked Members of our Community for Their Thoughts. Here's What They Had to Say

David John Key

Director of Business Development, Tempe Chamber

"Tempe's best-kept secret is ReVibeU Wellness Spa. The relaxing experience of float therapy isn't what you think of while passing through the bustling streets around ASU's campus, so it's easy to miss it on the northeast corner of University and Rural. Their team is incredible—from ownership to the front desk—and having a membership there the past two years has done wonders for my physical and mental health." 

Dr. Sherrill

Pediatric Dental Specialists 

"I am on the board of directors for the East Valley Chapter of National Charity League and at our kick-off meeting we gave awards out for philanthropy served and it was the most ever since our chapter served. Lots of girls volunteered enough to earn Presidential Volunteer Service Medals."

Karen Born 

Tempe Floral Designer, Fred's Flowers 

"My family moved to Tempe when I was 4 years old and I am still so proud to call this community home. If you don't know about Tempe Town Lake, you're missing out. It's a wonderful place to spend the day enjoying the various festivals and local restaurants. Enjoy the pedestrian bridge linking the two sides of the lake to the extensive bike paths." 

Cynthia Brown, Realtor 

Coldwell Banker Realty Tempe-Ahwatukee 

"The best-kept secret in my community is the Great Harvest Bread Company, located at Warner and McClintock.  This place makes the freshest sandwiches, homemade soups, and baked goodies I've ever had. My go-to sandwich is the Louisiana chicken salad on rye. They also offer take-home dried soup kits that are easy to make and well-seasoned. We're hooked on the jambalaya and gumbo! So easy to make that even my kids can whip up a batch."

Christine Budnik
Events & Marketing Coordinator, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice 

"Tempe’s best-kept secret is the PTO, staff, and families of Kyrene de la Mariposa. I was a member of the PTO before, during, and after covid. Our school community was able to not only bring much-loved events back for the students but also introduce some new ones, too, like Trunk or Treat and Spring Fling. The Mariposa families are very involved and Principal Spencer Fallgatter is the best!"
