Mesquite lies an easy 80 miles north of Las Vegas and is a growing resort destination found within the always beautiful Virgin River Valley. Holding on to its roots as a small town in Nevada, Mesquite still enjoys a comforting small-town feel. However, the past decade has seen much development occur within town and the population more than double.
This great boom of development led to the creation of several casino resorts and over a half dozen world-class golf courses, which today represent the main draw in Mesquite. With its numerous casinos and golf courses, a fabulous array of fine dining and celebrity entertainment, and incredible weather year-round, it's easy to see why Mesquite is becoming a popular destination for retirees and fun-seekers alike. For those not interested in golf or gambling, worry not, Mesquite is in a prime location for endless outdoor recreational opportunities.
Driving an hour or two in almost any direction will land you in one of America's premier national parks or forests. Utah's Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument and Dixie National Forest lie just to the northeast; Nevada's Cathedral Gorge, Great Basin National Park, Lake Mead NRA, and Valley of Fire State Park all lie within an hour or two away; and the always spectacular Grand Canyon of Arizona sits an easy drive to the southeast.
If you're looking for more local fun you can find a gun club, skydiving center, the Mesquite Recreation Center, and the always beautiful Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area to mention a few. The point is that Mesquite has pretty much anything you're looking for and if it's not there then it's not very far away.
