State Highway 250 runs west to east approximately one mile north of the neighborhood, with its variety of attractions. In addition to popular restaurants and retailers, this highway offers the city’s largest indoor shopping center, Midland Park Mall. It is also home to Midland Airpark and Hogan Park.

All of these attractions are within minutes of Western Mesa.
