The super-cool resort destination of Mesquite is a true desert paradise that combines the best of small-town life with big-city attractions. Situated in the picturesque Virgin River Valley, Mesquite offers a majestic mountain backdrop with cant-believe-its-real sunsets. But, Mesquite’s appeal definitely doesn't stop there. From gambling and fine dining, to championship golfing, visitors to the friendly desert community will find no shortage of things to do.
Located about an hour north of the bustling metropolis of Las Vegas, travelers can enjoy their time in this alluring southern Nevada getawa but also use it as homebase as they set out on incredible day trips to Valley of Fire State Park, the impressive Hoover Dam and Cathedral Gorge State Park. Other attractions within a short drive of Mesquite include Lake Mead National Recreation Area [the United States’ largest man-made reservoir] and Great Basin National Park.
