Activities in Mesquite
If you like the outdoors, you can enjoy Mesquite Nevada Walking Trails which are maintained by the city of Mesquite. You can walk or bike along golf courses, scenic desert bluffs or my favorite - the walking trail along the Virgin River, which runs through Mesquite NV. It has a paved walkway with lights that come on at dusk, and you can wander off and make your own trail! Take your dog, if you have one, but be sure to pick up after them.
We currently have 3 casino hotels here in Mesquite - Virgin River, CasaBlanca and Eureka. They all have very well priced Mesquite golf packages that include golf at one or more of our golf courses and staying in one of the hotels. You might choose a package that has 3 days of golf on 3 different golf courses and 3 nights at a hotel. Don't stay out too late - you will want to get an early tee time, especially in the summer - it is HOT here.
If you don't want to play inside the casinos we have 7 gorgeous golf courses in Mesquite for you to choose from. Golfers from around the country travel to play on the famous Wolf Creek Golf Course - rated by Golf Digest as one of the top 25 courses in the U.S. and the Palmer Golf Course - home of the Big Break. The other courses include Canyons, Conestoga, Falcon Ridge and CasaBlanca - all of which are superb choices.
The Mesquite Recreation Center is for families and singles with programs, classes and activities for young and not-so-young. There are 2 pools to choose from when you decide to go swimming. One of these is a shallow pool designed for the 'almost swimmers' and if you don't feel like swimming you can relax out of the sun in one of the covered picnic areas. You can even play basketball on the air conditioned indoor court and wait till you see the indoor and outdoor pools! Annual or monthly passes are available to residents of Mesquite.
