Why I Love Mesquite

In April of 2004, my wife Kathy and I came to Mesquite to enjoy a golf vacation. We stayed at the Oasis. We enjoyed the golf, gambling, and restaurants, and especially the people of Mesquite. While here, we decided to look around and ended up buying a condo. On the way home, I said to Kathy, “What the heck did we just do?”

She replied, “I don’t know but your Corvette is going up for sale!”

After retiring two years later, we became snowbirds for a couple of years and then became full-time residents. What a great decision we made. We both became involved in a variety of organizations. I have been involved with the Mesquite Veterans Center. We have had a terrific experience meeting and making new friends. I love Mesquite because we have a small town atmosphere where people are wonderful. The golf courses are awesome, the casinos are great, and the weather is good except for a little warm in July and August. One of our favorite things is our association with Mesquite Jeep. We are an off-road group that takes trips together. The people in the group are just terrific. We have had the opportunity to see sights that we never even thought existed.

We can’t think of any other place where we would rather be retired.
