Located eighty miles northeast of Las Vegas
, the city of Mesquite sits in the Virgin River Valley and accommodation here is easily accessible from McCarran International Airport
in Las Vegas. Originally established as a farming community, the population remains small and its greatest industry is tourism.
One of the most popular activities for people with condo rentals in Mesquite is golfing. There are five different golf courses
in the foothills of the Virgin Mountains. Each has its own set of characteristics, challenges and skill levels. Make sure to bring your clubs with you to your vacation rental and book a tee time.

are very popular. There are also five marinas on the reservoir and many coves and rocky cliffs to explore. Have a day at the beach and return to your lodging refreshed.
