Mesa is a city in Maricopa County, in the U.S. Take a break from the city and head to Boyce Thompson Arboretum and Gold Canyon Resort - Dinosaur Mountain Golf Course. Let the collections at Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West and Superstition Mountain Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Mesa side-trips: Florence (St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery & The Windmill Winery), Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch (in Picacho) and Casa Grande Ruins National Monument (in Coolidge). Next up on the itinerary: Head underground at Tonto National Monument, identify plant and animal life at Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch, tee off at Troon North Golf Club, and cruise along Apache Trail Scenic Drive.

Plan my Mesa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
