What locals are saying

Welcome to Mesquite, a small town that is holding onto that true southern flavor in an age where big-city skyscrapers and suburban McMansions plague the cities and suburbs of Texas. Mesquite is simple, down-to-earth, crazy about football, and the best place in the south to witness real cowboys doing their thing, especially when the rodeo season comes around.

Transportation

Welcome to Mesquite, a small town that is holding onto that true southern flavor in an age where big-city skyscrapers and suburban McMansions plague the cities and suburbs of Texas. Mesquite is simple, down-to-earth, crazy about football, and the best place in the south to witness real cowboys doing their thing, especially when the rodeo season comes around.

Tips for Renters

Transportation. In case you didn’t already know, there are few places in Texas where you can survive without a car. And, since Mesquite doesn’t have any form of public transportation, the meaning of survive becomes much more literal. For those residents living in the northern area of Mesquite, you can save gas and skip the traffic by driving over to Garland for the DART (Dallas Area Transit) Park and Ride Station. For those living on the west side of town, there is a DART rail station near White Rock Lake, just inside the Dallas city limits.

Passing Time. One sure-fire way to enjoy life here is to escape the apartment complex whenever you can to enjoy the things in life that brought you to this town in the first place… mainly, fishing, football, and the rodeo. A good place to snag some bass, catfish, and crappie is right outside of town on Lake Ray Hubbard. For beginners, just cast your pole around shallow vegetation and sunken brush piles for largemouth bass. Trot lines will pull in some mean catfish, as well. As far as football is concerned, you don’t have to travel far to find a nice little restaurant with a Cowboys game on. And, last but certainly not least, the rodeo. The Mesquite Rodeo, which has been around for over half a century, is the greatest spectacle to see around here. At the heart of the show, you can catch some skillful roping and barrel racing. And, with new management, the rodeo today features much more than one would expect. Things such light shows, pyrotechnics, jumbo trons, and the swanky bar known as the 8-second club make it fun for those used to big-city affairs.

Neighborhoods

Original Town. The center of town, complete with music stores, and the Rodeo City Music Hall.

Hickory Heights. Old timey barber shop, country cafés, and a grooming salon down the dirt road.

Oakridge. Convenient, and meandering whiffs of southern cooking.

Redman Square. Soul food, barbecue and walks in the park.

Beltline Range. Home to Samuell Mesquite Park, as well as shopping, cinemas, and Wal-Mart.

Town Centre Village. Nearby Town East Mall.

Hillhome Gardens. Walking distance to the mall

Pyramid. Flowing creeks, tons of shopping, and chain restaurants with football on the TV’s.

Casa Ridge. A good location, especially those needing to commute to Dallas.

Palos Verdes Landing. Scenic, and minutes away from Lake Ray Hubbard.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

There are not enough words to describe the way of life in Mesquite. So, head on out there in the heat of summer, meet the neighbors, see the country landscape, and prepare to be welcomed to the neighborhood!
