When we look for community strengths, we cannot overlook three hundred plus days of sunshine and the unsurpassed outdoor venues and vistas found in Mesquite.  

Those who have taken the time to see the beauty that surrounds Mesquite are a select few, when compared to the number of travelers that pass by our community on Interstate 15 every year.  The desert has many unseen beautiful secrets waiting to be discovered.  Very little compares to a Joshua tree forest or fields of desert wild flowers in full bloom.

Mesquite, thanks to a handful of hearty entrepreneurs, is embracing one of our major strengths.  Our community has always been an outdoor mecca for those of us who have lived here.  Thanks to these businesses, outdoor events are now driving a robust sports and off-road vehicle tourism industry.  Thousands of visitors descend on Mesquite throughout the year to play soccer, football, baseball, softball, golf, and to enjoy hundreds of miles of off road trails through some of the most spectacular desert vistas in the Southwest.

Each of us can learn from nature's example if we are willing to take a moment and look around.  The desert teaches us to seize the moment and how to thrive in adversity.  By embracing these principles, local businesses can thrive while the economy shifts. More importantly, while making those adjustments we can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the United States.

Carpe diem!
