When you need to cross the Grand Canyon off your bucket list, it's time to check out flights to Mesa, Arizona. Just 30 minutes east of Phoenix and a few hours south of the Grand Canyon, Mesa is quite close to national sports complexes, refreshing spas, and scenic wonders.
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (AZA) lies southeast of the city in an easy-to-navigate building and surrounded by desert scenery. If your Mesa flights arrive soon after dawn or dusk, you’re in for an extra-special sight as you watch golden rays warm the Valley of the Sun.
Thanks to Arizona’s open horizon, sprawling highways, and warm weather, one thing is for sure: This is road trip country. Add to that the fact that Mesa is one of the few large U.S. towns without transit service on Sundays, and you’ll definitely want to pick up a rental car near gates 9 and 10 after your flight to Mesa touches down. You’ll be very close to Route 202, which loops around the East Valley and extends toward downtown Phoenix.
Of course, you will want to discover the state’s cherished natural wonder, the Grand Canyon. Just connect with Interstate 17 and drive north through gorgeous national forests on your way to the south rim. To keep cool and play closer to Mesa hotels, leave your wheels for inner tubes and float with the gentle currents of Salt River, located within the northern city limits.
