Staying in an RV is a lot of fun when you’re out in the wilderness, but that doesn’t mean you have to camp in the middle of nowhere. If your idea of a fun vacation is checking out the city sites, rent an RV and head to Mesa, Arizona.
There are plenty of things to do that will keep you and your family busy! Here are four things you should do while you’re RVing in Mesa.
Walk the Wind Cave Trail
Just because you’re staying in the city doesn’t mean you don’t want to spend a little time out in nature! If you want to get out and take a break, walk the Wind Cave Trail.
This trail offers the perfect city escape because it’s not even three miles long. Admire the wind-carved hollows and cliffs, and make sure you check out the cave.
It’s a relatively easy trail to walk, making it a good choice for families. However, if you’re looking for a challenge, loop left at the cave and continue walking on rougher terrain.
Take the Mesa Ghost Tour and History Walk
If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more geared toward older kids and adults, take the Mesa Ghost Tour and History Walk.
The tour involves an above- and below-ground tour of some of the area’s oldest buildings. You can also sign up for a special event if you’re in the area at the right time, wherein you can accompany real paranormal investigators. If you are enthusiastic about a spooky adventure of a lifetime, this might be your chance. To get the feel of it, bring with you some of your own ghost-busting equipment like an EDI Meter, a thermal imaging camera, and a spirit box scanner. If you do not possess any of these, source them from SpiritShack. That said, to get more information on the haunts in downtown Mesa, sign up for the Halloween tour info desk.
Tube on the Salt River
If you’re looking to beat the heat, Mesa has you covered with Salt River tubing. You can choose between two-, three-, and five-hour trips that include a shuttle ride to and from the river.
Think about visiting the river for a special event. Parties and costumes are the norm for events like the Halloween Spooktacular, Mardi Gras Magic, and the Hawaiian Hula.
Check out the i.d.e.a. Museum with the Kids
If you’re RVing with kids, a museum is a must. Museums provide immersive learning experiences and provoke imagination which provides them with memories they will never forget. That’s definitely the case if you visit the i.d.e.a. Museum.
Although it’s true that the kids will love this museum, the adults will have a blast too! A few things you may be able to do when visiting the museum include:
- Explore ArtVille
- Build three dimensional structures with interesting materials
- Take a Messy Creation class
The museum also hosts events throughout the year that are fun for the whole family. The museum even hosts Parents Night Out where you can leave your kids to learn and play while you grab dinner with your sweetie!
There are tons of fun things to do in Mesa, especially if you stay in an RV. Plan to do a few of the things on this list and you’ll see why so many RVers stop in Mesa when it’s time to hit the road.
