Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop! Check out our list of top things to do in Mesa, whether you are currently planning your trip, or just looking for travel inspiration! #LetsGoThere
2. The Apache Trail: Follow the footsteps of Native Americans and hopeful prospectors from the 1880s along miles of spectacular Superstition Wilderness. The historic and stunning scenic byway captures the true essence of Arizona.
3, Usery Mountain Regional Park Nature Center: Rangers will guide visitors into the discovery of Arizona’s unique Sonoran Desert flora and fauna. Desert critters and crawlers are also on display. Check out their calendar for in-park events that families will love as we head into fall.

5. Shopping & Spas: Relax and unwind with a refined collection of day spas and fun shopping experiences strewn throughout the city. With boutiques in Downtown Mesa and upscale shops at Village Square at Dana Park, there’s something for everyone.
6. Organ Stop Pizza: Home to the world’s largest theater organ serving up great food and entertainment. The Wurlitzer organ, built in 1927, towers above the large group dining room providing restaurant goers with an over-the-top dining experience. Named by Buzz Feed as the quirkiest attraction in the entire Grand Canyon State!
