Tempe, also known as Hayden's Ferry during the territorial times of Arizona, is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States, with the Census Bureau reporting a 2010 population of 161,719. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Penske Racing Museum and Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum. Get outdoors at Adrenaline & Extreme Tours and Tonto Natural Bridge State Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Scottsdale (Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center & Taliesin West), Casa Grande Ruins National Monument (in Coolidge) and Goldfield Ghost Town (in Apache Junction). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Old Town Scottsdale, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, delve into the distant past at Besh Ba Gowah, and Head underground at Tonto National Monument.
