The town of Mesquite got its start in the 1870s as an agricultural community and small depot town on the railroad tracks. Today, with a population of more than 125,000, it retains its historical Texas charm but with a big city feel. Just a few miles east of downtown Dallas, Mesquite has everything you need for a great family getaway.
Stay with Choice Hotels and discover the best attractions of the area nearby, including:
Check out Mesquite's unique history by visiting the Florence Ranch Homestead, a ranch home that epitomizes late 19th century rural Texas architecture. The home's educational museum is open every Tuesday through Friday, and tours are available every second Saturday of the month. Then get outside to hike, fish, picnic and feed the animals in the barnyard corral at the gorgeous 340 acre Samuell Farm.
Catch some racing theatrics at Devil's Bowl Speedway, where amateur racers compete on the dirt track, and where many pros got their start. During the summer months, catch a live show of the Mesquite Pro Rodeo. While you can catch it on TV, there's nothing like seeing it in person. Visitors also can also get their hands on rifles and pistols at Gibson Outpost Shooting Range. If you're an avid concert-goer, catch a country music or gospel show featuring fresh local talent and longtime legends over at Rodeo City Music Hall.
From rodeos to historical sites, Mesquite has everything you need for an authentic Texas experience. Book a room at one of our Mesquite, TX hotels, put on your cowboy hat and paint the town red!
