Sunny Outdoor Paradise in Mesa, AZ

Thank you to the team at Visit Mesa for hosting us in your beautiful city. We can't wait to work with you on a fresh website design.

Mesa, AZ

Creative Brief

We love the Arizona sunshine and it was a pleasure to experience Mesa's outdoors and delicious dining scene with the team at Visit Mesa. Thank you to Marc, Michelle, Terrie, and Ginger for meeting with us to kick off the new website project. It was amazing to see the destination through your eyes and begin to imagine a new web platform that will help tell Mesa's authentic story.

Here a few of the highlights from the visit, including a gorgeous kayak ride on the Salt River. 

Mesa is home to tons of cool murals and selfie ops!

Kayaking the Salt River was a one-of-a-kind experience. Thank you to Dale from the Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch for leading our trip.
We were lucky enough to see wild horses on our kayak tour.

If You Go . . . 

  • Foodies will love Queen Creek Olive Mill. It's a great place to grab a bite to eat and see how olive oil is grown and produced in Arizona.
  • Downtown Mesa is home to a wonderful Arts Center with world-class performances, a cider tasting room, and several craft breweries.
  • If you're looking for plenty of walkable dining and nightlife options, head to nearby Historic Downtown Gilbert
