Not Your Average Rodeo
The city of Dallas has many beautiful towns and suburbs surrounding it. Among the top of these is popular Mesquite. About 35 miles east of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Mesquite is home to the world famous Mesquite ProRodeo. Once a small railroad town, the city was founded in 1878 and the land was predominately used for cotton farming, as well as sugar, corn, and hay. That is, until the end of the 1950s, when two things happened. In 1958 the Mesquite ProRodeo was established and a year later Mesquite opened Big Town Mall, the country’s first air-conditioned shopping mall. It didn’t take long before people took notice of the next big city. Today, more than 140,000 residents proudly call Mesquite home.
Life in Mesquite is full of things to do and places to go. Whether honing your skills on a tennis court at Westlake Sports Center, checking out a band at the Mesquite Arts Center, or getting a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in the area, entertainment abounds. And let’s not forget about the ever-popular Mesquite ProRodeo, which not only provides the one-of-a-kind excitement of bull riding, but also holds big-name concerts and festivals.
Most schools in Mesquite are served by Mesquite Independent School District, which is comprised of 46 campuses: thirty-two elementary schools, eight middle schools, five high schools and Mesquite Academy, the alternative school on Motley Drive. A small portion of the city is served by Dallas ISD, and some attend the private Dallas Christian School.
There are more than a dozen neighborhoods within Mesquite for you to consider while searching for your new home. Some of the most popular include Pasadena Gardens, Falcon’s Ridge, Rollingwood Hills, and Pecan Creek.
