Located just 20 minutes outside of downtown Dallas, Mesquite is much more than just a suburb of Texas’ largest city. In Mesquite, you’ll find a vacation destination as complete as any other. From classic past times and country western experiences to ultra-trendy nights out on the town, Mesquite has it all. Conflating Mesquite with its neighbor of Dallas would be a cruel disservice, as Mesquite has a flavor (don’t worry, we’ll get to the food) and vibe all of its own.
As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas, and Mesquite is no exception. For a particularly large shopping experience, head over to the Rows of Texas -- a four-mile stretch of shopping and dining districts along Interstate 635 and Retail Row with over three million square feet of shopping for every budget.
If you’re not keen on retail therapy, how about some outdoor therapy? Head over to Trinity Forest Adventure Park which boasts a ropes course, zip lines, and military obstacles. We also recommend you check out City Lake Aquatic Center, Westlake Sports Park, and the 4.25-mile Mesquite Heritage Trail that’s great for running and biking. For sports lovers, grab your gear and head over to Celebration Station, which has everything from batting cages to mini golf courses and rock climbing walls.
Back in town, you should make it a point to explore one of the 13 designated historical sites throughout the city. The Florence Ranch Homestead and the Opal Lawrence Historic Park are wonderful places to immerse yourself in 19th-century life.
Enough beating around the bush -- perhaps the most important thing about Mesquite is rodeo culture. Mesquite is often referred to as the rodeo capital of Texas, and for good reason. Visit the Camelot Sports & Entertainment Company during the traditional rodeo season between spring and fall for a true all-out Texas experience.
Vacation rentals in Mesquite run the gamut in terms of price and style. Here you can find a vacation home that feels as cozy as your real home, or a top-floor penthouse that has you feeling as modern and hip as the interior decorating. We also recommend staying in an Airbnb or a shared home to get the true Texas experience. Because mesquite is fairly small, we recommend staying right in the city center.
It’s fairly widely recognized that springtime is the best time to visit Mesquite and the greater Dallas area. Texas is hot in the summertime, and many people don’t realize how cold it can get during the winter. Thus, shoot for the months between March and May to make the most of your vacation.
