Check Out the Arts
Mesa has its own “Culture Crawl,” where visitors can wander around the downtown area and check out more than 40 innovative public art sculptures.
Art lovers can visit the Mesa Arts Center, home to a rotating gallery, and also home to a performing arts space featuring live music, comedians, circus-style shows and more.
The I.D.E.A. Museum is a hands-on art museum with fun for the whole family, featuring paintings, sculptures, photographs, and interactive activities.
If you take a ride on the Valley Metro Light Rail that runs through Mesa, keep your eyes peeled for additional art installations at Mesa stops.
Have a Dino-Mite Time
The Arizona Museum of Natural History has the largest dinosaur exhibit west of the Mississippi River. There are tons of archaeology, paleontology, ethnology and history exhibits to check out, plus a 50-foot high indoor waterfall that’s awe-inspiring.
There’s also a photography gallery and rotating art exhibits, including art that highlights Native American cultures that are so important to Arizona heritage.
See What the Wild West Was All About
Arizona visitors (and even some residents) love learning more about the Wild West culture the state is known for throughout the world. Rockin’ R Ranch is a fun place to check out to see a slice of history, where staff dress in traditional Western garb and offer saloon-worthy entertainment patrons of all ages will enjoy.
See a gunfight, watch a Western music and comedy show, and chow down on hearty cowboy fare. In cooler weather, you can explore the property, mine for “gold,” pet furry animals and more.
Take Yourself Out to a Ball Game
You don’t have to head to Phoenix for a good ol’ game of baseball. Mesa is home to the Chicago Cubs and Oakland A’s spring training teams, who play teams from around the league during the 30-day spring training stretch.
Spring training is a must-do activity in Mesa. You can get up-close-and-personal to players, take in the action in gorgeous Mesa spring weather, and nosh on a beer and peanuts in the middle of the day in the middle of the week. Even baseball fans look forward to this very-Arizona pastime!
Get Your Groove On
Music lovers love Mesa because there are always great live musicians who can be heard around town.
- Desert Eagle Brewing Company: Head to the Main Street Mesa location of Desert Eagle Brewing Company for open mic nights and live local bands several times a week.
- The Monastery Bar & Grill: If you love sand volleyball, grilling, bar fare, and live music, The Monastery Bar & Grill is the place to be. Hit up a sand volleyball court, then try some weekly karaoke. The spot also features live DJs and bands on various nights.
- Mesa Amphitheatre: Mesa Amphitheatre has seen hit acts like Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco take the stage. The unique outdoor venue has tiered grass seats, and shows are a blast there, especially when the weather is nice.
It’s not uncommon to see the occasional street performer in Mesa, either. And if you’re a musician yourself, you have to check out the legendary Milano Music Center, a sprawling musician’s paradise that’s been open since 1946.
