Introduction

Mesa, Arizona

Mesa, Arizona is sports central in the Southwest. Home to Chicago Cubs and Oakland A’s spring training baseball, the city has some of the state’s most in-demand sports facilities with even more under construction. The newest venue to call Mesa home is Bell Bank Park, powered by Legacy Sports USA – the largest complex of its kind in the country. Not to be missed is Mesa’s aquatic centers, boasting fast pools where legends come to compete.

Mix in endless opportunities to play outdoors in fantastic weather and it is no wonder why Mesa is the ideal city to host any type of sports competition.

After the game, head out and explore the rest our destination has to offer. Enjoy Route 88’s scenic desert wilderness, history and folklore from the Superstition Mountains and its Lost Dutchman Mine, Goldfield Ghost Town and more. Tonto National Forest is perfect for desert exploration with camping, hiking and gorgeous recreation sites that visitors can discover year-round. The Lower Salt River lines Mesa’s northern border and features stunning recreation areas and well-marked trails.
