any and all help would be great. i have been researching on the web too but when you dont know what you are looking for its hard to find anything lol
thank you to all responses
there's not a lot to do in Chandler - it is mostly a suburban community full of Mormons
drive a little ways into Tempe, where there is tons to do - shopping, restaurants, clubs, the town lake...especially Mill Avenue. you can always find cool people to talk to there, even street musicians.
I was born in Mesa (8 miles away) and lived in Chandler until I was 11, then made the big move to Mesa...
Chandler was a city of 28,000 when I was a kid and is somewhere around 225,000 now. I go back every once in a while and it's amazing how much Chandler itself has changed, but the old "downtown" area is very much like it used to be when I was a kid...
Living in Chandler there's quite a bit to do and when you run out of things, there are like 12 different cities with a metropolitan population of over 4 million people within 50 miles. So you should be able to find lots to do.
Nope sorry can't help you there cos I am thousands of miles away in Spain, but I'm sure there must be someone from your state at least on here.
I live 2,700 mile away in Ireland.....but I would be ready to help if your in difficulty....just shout
You are not going to find much to do in Chandler if you are young, best place is Tempe it is a college town with much more to do. There are festivals and art exhibits you may enjoy in Chandler my recommendation go to the local Chamber of Commerce and ask them what type of activities go on in your community.
pinkylee, you did not say your mother was coming on our first date....Hi Ma
lmao ... yall are to funny and thanks for all the advice ... love ya mama
Yeah we were playing while you were getting your beauty rest.
I used to live out there. I dont know what part of chandler you are in, but the best bars that I know of are: Iguana Macks and Dos Gringos between Warner and Ray on Alma School. Personally I prefer Iguana Macks. Fibber Magee's is also fun, especially on St Patty's day.
The best food in the world outside of my mother's kitchen is Chino Bandito on Chandler and Dobson. Mexican chinese food. The Jade Red Chicken with cheese quesadilla will be my last meal.
As for stuff to do... well, note that there were three bars on my list. There isn't much to do in Arizona. Someone recommended Mill ave, which is near the ASU campus and has a very big university campus atmosphere. I don't much care for it, but you might enjoy it. Just don't drive down there on Saturday night. It's impossible to park and there are a lot of drunk drivers.
Sorry cannot help. I live in Northeast of U.S. in Massachusetts.
We lived in chandler for a while and later moved to Surprise. Do you have kids? Are you looking for grown up or kids' stuff?
Free: Chandler has some really nice city parks and a top notch library system. Better than I've seen in some other parts of Arizona. It is an affluent area and the city has a lot to offer that way. My favorite park is Desert Breeze. It has a free splash park (where you can put on your swim suit and splash around.)
For more cultural things to do, you should venture out of Chandler and explore the downtown arts district, the new Musical Instrument Museum in Northern Phoenix, etc.
Nearby in Queen Creek there's a medieval fair that comes through town in February/March.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arizona cannot require proof of citizenship for voter registration. HUH???? Sorry, I'm all for legal immigration, but voting is a right reserved for U.S. citizens - not for illegal immigrants. When American citizens are convicted of drug crimes, their...

Not that I am in love with Arizona, which is known for it's racist policies concerning Mexican American studies in public schools, as well as racial profiling. However, a gunman who killed one person and wounded 5 others in Mesa Arizona Wednesday morning was apprehended "alive"...

How many of us actually, consciously, make an effort to give to someone for no apparent reason, other than, to make their day. (better)?It can be as little as a smile, or as big as paying a bill that someone you know, can't pay. Only for one reason. to be a blessing to another human being.What have...

I saw a short blurb in the newspaper that there are now 7 lawsuits filed against the Arizona immigration law. The interesting part was that one of the suits was filed by a police officer because, according to his lawyer, he might be fired from his job if he didn't enforce the new law.What...

Christians, would it bother you if atheist put signs in their front yard saying "There is no God"?I live in the bible belt and every 1/4 mile there is a religious sign in someone's front yard or a church. It never bothers me but I have always wondered if Christians would be the same way...
