It's about MESA


Traveling with tots? Mesa has you covered. Whether creating a work of art, panning for gold, or feeling your way through a dark cave, Mesa offers an enriching experience for every family. Mesa is recognized nationally as offering one of the most family-friendly communities for residents. In fact, the city most recently made the annual “Playful City USA” list by KaBOOM!, a national non-profit organization dedicated to bringing play into children’s lives.

Such distinctions bode well for travelers seeking out unique and different ways to keep children entertained and engaged on vacation. Year-round, Mesa attractions offer interaction both indoors and out at museums, play centers, parks, shopping centers and more. Whether your child seeks out an action-packed adventure, or more a laid-back affair, families have countless options to make memories in the Sonoran Desert. And, just because you have kids in tow doesn’t mean dining is relegated to fast food and take-out. Rather, Mesa’s kid-friendly restaurants cater to tykes and teens, ensuring all appetites are satisfied – often with a dash of entertainment added to the mix!
