The Phoenix Urban Dynamics Tour is an interactive tour along the METRO light rail that will highlight past and current urban dynamics features. Riders will learn from three urban geography experts and stop at various points along the light rail to see some of the features firsthand. Stops will include the Tempe Transit Center, the Hayden Flour Mill, the Warehouse District, Civic Space Park, Roosevelt Row, and Lux Cafe. We will reach Lux Cafe and Pane Bianco, both local restaurants, for lunch at 2:00 p.m. before returning to Tempe.

This is an RSVP-only event as there are limited spaces.

RSVP or send questions to Kim Pearson.

Special thanks to our sponsor, the Gamma Theta Upsilon Geography Honor Society.

This event is centered around the Sustainable Urban Dynamics challenge area.

Sustainable Urban Dynamics Challenge:
Like the old adage says, you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you have been. Challenge yourself to learn more about the history of your neighborhood or community, even if you live on campus. Who first lived in your neighborhood or community? What were its principal economic activities? What did people do for entertainment? Maybe even interview an older resident so that you and others can learn about the past.
