i am scouting for possible areas to relocate to and my parents told me to look into phoenix (they will most likely retire in scottsdale). i lived in tempe briefly years ago for college (went to asu), and i didnt really leave tempe for the most part which i regret now. are there areas that have a bohemian/hippy feel to them with cafes, used clothing stores, independently owned restaurants and shops, etc? the only area i could think of is possibly part of downtown phoenix which i didnt think much of when i went there. the thing i miss the most about the phoenix area is OREGANOS!!!

Interesting. I don't think of Oregano's as terribly Bohemian, but I guess everyone's got to be mainsteam part of the time.

Places I recommend looking into:

Maple-Ash area of Tempe
Roosevelt & Evans-Churchill areas at north end of Downtown Phoenix
Melrose area centered around 7th Ave between Indian School & Camelback
Uptown Area near Central & Camelback
Coronado Historic District

Here are also some up-and-coming areas if you are more willing to be a pioneer:

Sunnyslope
Garfield area -- just east of Downtown
Apache Boulevard in Tempe

Please move to Sunnyslope and bring lots of friends with you to improve the area because Sunnyslope is a gang infested dump down to the canal, below that is extremely nice. Sunnyslope high school is the best in the area, something of a paradox; probably because it is run by Glendale, not Phoenix.

There is no such thing as Sunnyslope below the Arizona Canal. The neighborhood south of the canal is North Central Phoenix, which is distinct from Sunnyslope.

I agree. Oregano's is okay as a local chain, but I'd rather eat at Cibo, Pizzeria Bianco, the Parlor, Humble Pie, LGO Pizzeria, or Classic Italian Pizza in Tempe. Plus, any of those places would better affirm the OP's desired Bohemian lifestyle

Interesting about the Apache Blvd area in Tempe...........although, I do tend to agree-------it definitely has a 'funky' vibe.
