Things to Do

Adventure in Mesa

Check out our round-up of family-friendly Spring Break activities for the whole family here in City Limitless®.

1. Explore the Desert

Just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city is Arizona's Tonto National Forest. Wander amidst towering Saguaro cacti, meander through mountains adorned with vibrant wildflowers, or bike among dirt paths amid the surrounding desert landscape.

2. Kayak on the Salt River

For kiddos itching to get in the water, Riverbound Sports Paddle Co. offers kayak and paddleboard lessons out at the scenic Saguaro Lake. This experience allows you and the family to immerse yourselves in nature while enjoying a fun new activity together.

3. The Wild West Experience

If you want a true Wild West experience, head over to Goldfield Ghost Town and walk around the historic old mining town, pan for gold then take a ride on Arizona’s only narrow-gauge train. You’ll also get to witness an old west gun fight performed by the famous Goldfield Gunfighters!

4. The Arizona Renaissance Festival

The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a local favorite for family fun and gives you a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather and sunshine! With jousting, food, music, comedy and arts; there’s sure to be something for the whole family. This medieval-style faire is held on Saturdays and Sundays through March 29. If you’re traveling on a budget, the faire is great because kids under 5 get in for free!

Spring Training

For baseball fans, you won’t want to miss seeing a Chicago Cubs or Oakland A's game during your Spring Break trip. Each year, the month of March brings thousands of baseball fans to Mesa for Major League Baseball Spring Training. The gorgeous spring weather here in Mesa sets the perfect scene for a day at the diamond. When you go, opt for a spot on the lawn over the stadium-style seats. You’ll save money and get more leg room to spread out. Plus, there’s nothing like lounging on the lawn in the sunshine while enjoying a nice, cool treat like an ice cream cone!

Where to Stay

The Mesa Courtyard is a great place to stay with the kids. Your teens will love using the Wi-Fi to share their favorite photos with their friends. The outdoor pool is a perfect spot to soak up the spring time sun!

The Delta is another great hotel to stay and is nestled right in downtown. Be sure to check out the pool and try some of the delicious restaurants conveniently located nearby!
