Mill Avenue District is a very busy place, a central, vibrant part of Tempe - lots of indie shops and boutiques selling everything you need or everything you don't need, cafes, restaurants, taverns, some historic buildings, and people walking everywhere. Broadway, of sorts - AZ...More

There is a wealth of things to do on Mill. Bars, fun clothing shops, Five Guys, the first Harkins Theater. The Light Rail has a stop at the end of Mill, so you can bypass the parking price and the trick of locating one.

There are lots of burger, pizza, beer, and coffee places in this area, as well as shopping. I like Rehab burger (they can and do cook it medium rare--not all places can), while my husband likes Pedal Haus, and our daughter likes the boutiques.

OK, college town and you expect eclectic, vibrant eateries - etc. You get that, plus challenging parking and geared more toward tourists than the broke college students that were my mates when we "were there". Prices reflect that too.

Wow! Mill Avenue has really grown up! Where it historically catered to college students, it now is inviting to all walks of life. Cool shops and excellent food!
