One of the fastest-growing small cities in the United States, Mesquite offers the charm and intimacy of a friendly small town, while providing entertainment and golfing amenities you would ordinarily find only in a more metropolitan setting.

Mesquite boasts seven golf courses, including the world famous Wolf Creek Golf Course, ranked in the Top 100 by Golf Digest, as well as the Oasis Palmer course featured in the Golf Channel's "Big Break - Mesquite" TV show.

With four larger casinos including the Eureka, CasaBlanca, Oasis, and Virgin River, you can enjoy blackjack, roulette, craps, sports book, and hundreds of slot and video poker machines.  The casinos also mean you can find top name entertainment at the Event Center, starring such international stars as Kenny Rogers, Larry The Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, Clint Black, Wynonna, and many more.

The small city of 18,000 has also become a Mecca for senior softball as well as other diamond sports, thanks to the pristine fields at Pioneer Park which draw baseball and softball tournaments from all over the U.S. and Canada.

The community also boasts 18 movie screens, ensuring that you can find whatever form of cinematic entertainment you enjoy, from big-name blockbusters to more art-oriented independent films. 

Mesquite also emphasizes the outdoor lifestyle with the Oasis Gun Club, where shotgun enthusiasts can shoot skeet and trap, the Mesquite MotoCross Park where national events like the Loretta Lynn MotoCross series makes a stop, and the Mesquite Rodeo Arena, home to various professional team roping, bull riding, and general professional and amateur rodeo events throughout the year.
