Mesa is located in Maricopa County, Arizona. This suburb is located a little more than 20 miles East of Phoenix.

The estimated population here in Mesa as of 2017 was just under 500,000. Mesa is the third largest City in Arizona behind Phoenix and Tucson. Mesa is approximately 139 square miles and only a tiny portion of that is made up of water. One of the most interesting things about Mesa is that it is so long in the East to West directions that people refer to the areas that they live in as either East Mesa or West Mesa. This helps to avoid a lot of confusion when someone asks where in Mesa you live. The distance between East and West Mesa is about 18 miles.

Attractions in Mesa
There is so much to do here in Mesa. If you are a sports fan you can take a trip over to Sloan Park. This baseball park holds 15,000 people and was opened back in 2014.

This ball park serves as the spring training for the Chicago Cubs but it also home to the Arizona League Cubs which is part of the Arizona League as well as the Mesa Solar Sox which is part of the Arizona Fall League. The size and set up of this ball park is almost exact of that of Wrigley Field, which is the home of the Chicago Cubs. This park is also the largest spring training facility in all of Major League Baseball. If you are more into art there is plenty for you to do here as well. The Mesa Arts Center is located in downtown Mesa. This performing and visual arts complex is standing at around 210,000 square feet and cost $95 million to construct back in 2005. The Mesa Arts Centers has so much all within its 210,000 square feet that it might be hard to pick just one thing to do. There is the Farnsworth Studio Theatre that has only 99 seats which makes for a very intimate theatre experience.

This place is a must see if you live in Mesa.
Mesa is a gorgeous desert city that has a great economy as well as a spring training facility for sports fans and an arts center for all the art lovers out there. Mesa is a must see if you are thinking of moving to Arizona!
