Located at the base of the rugged Superstition Mountains on Salt River, Mesa is the third-largest city in Arizona. Founded in 1878, it features a beautiful downtown area, a strong public school system, and great outdoor living.
Just south of the Salt River Indian Reservation, Mesa is two hours north of Tucson and 15 miles east of Phoenix. It is home to Mesa Community College and 10 miles east of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. This busy metro area is connected to Tempe and Phoenix by the METRO Light Rail system.
Downtown Mesa features the Arizona Museum of Natural History, the Mesa Arts Center, hundreds of shops and restaurants, and festivals.
