Mesa Vacation Guide
Tucked away on the eastern edge of Phoenix, this tech-centric suburb charms locals and visitors alike.
From Tonto to Technology
Perched alongside the mountain-meets-desert terrain of Tonto National Forest, Mesa is one of the fastest-growing communities in Arizona. Much like Phoenix itself, it's a city where natural beauty and thriving business collide, and Mesa all inclusive packages offer a perfect peek at the blossoming tech industry, burgeoning art scene, and desert-influenced atmosphere.
Though it was founded in the late 19th century by Mormon pioneers, the current face of Mesa balances its past, present, and future to stunning effect. The area's heritage stands strong at the visually striking Mesa Mormon Temple, but you'll find a modern flair in the impressive collection of museums and shopping districts. Plus, the hotels in Mesa are ideal alternatives to the hustle and bustle of its neighbouring metropolis.
A Desert Flower
Falling somewhere between the city's cosmopolitan sprawl and the upscale charm of Scottsdale, this Arizona beauty is a shining star in the desert landscape. The weather is predictably warm — you'll never see a snowflake cross paths with the city centre — and winters take on a certain spring-like allure. Visit during the summer to find discounts on Mesa packages, and aim for the autumn if milder temps suit you.
Top Things to See and Do
You'll want to hit PHX for the brightest city lights, but put those Mesa car rentals away for an in-town afternoon or two. Art and culture find a local footing at the Mesa Arts Center and Museum of Natural History, the Park of the Canals hosts an achingly gorgeous botanical garden, and the Saguaro Lake Ranch specializes in sunset horseback rides. Sports fans may want to plan ahead; the Chicago Cubs train here in the spring.
