week-long vacations, guaranteeing them first-class accommodations while visiting the Phoenix area.
Sightseeing and More
Museum lovers will find just what they need when visiting Mesa. The fabulous museums include the Arizona Museum of Natural History, the Arizona Museum for Youth, and the Mesa Arts Center. For a real-life history lesson, visit the Rockin' R Ranch, where everything from staged gunfights to scrumptious Old West cuisine is enjoyed by young and old alike.
Other nearby attractions include Goldfield Ghost Town, Dolly Steamboat, the Superstition Mountains Museum, and the Apacheland Movie Ranch. Spectacular desert scenery is just a short drive from town. South Mountain Park, Papago Park, and Lost Dutchman State Park attract countless thousands of visitors each year. The Salt River passes through Mesa, and on the outskirts of town, the river widens seasonally, accommodating those who want to cool off with a pleasant rubber raft trip.
Amazing Craft Shopping
Shoppers can get just about anything on their crafts or souvenir list by visiting Dana Park Village Square. This 400,000 square-foot mall contains fashion boutiques, bargain stores, factory outlets, and more. Mesa Riverview is another huge shopping area containing restaurants, anchor stores, and theaters.
Golf courses are found throughout Mesa and neighboring Tempe. In the spring, catch an Oakland A's spring training game. ATV enthusiasts will find mile after mile of charted and properly zoned off-road trails within just an hour's drive from the center of Mesa.
Try Timeshare Accommodation
Most of the resort properties are located in West Mesa, and this means quick access to the city of Tempe and the freeway leading into downtown Phoenix. Visitors are encouraged to check out the discounted Mesa timeshares for sale here at Timeshare Broker Associates for vacation ownership in a resort suite. Fully furnished units, barbeque areas, outdoor and indoor sports courts, outdoor pools, and fitness centers are located on many of the timeshare properties.
Mesa and all of the Phoenix area opens its arms to visitors year-round, but visiting in late fall or during the winter means pleasant temperatures and scarce rainfall. Whenever you choose to come, get ready to enjoy a real Southwest experience.
