I moved to Mesquite to live with my family after having a nervous breakdown. I’d been independent my entire life and at 32 I couldn’t function on my own due to chronic physical pain and my battle with my mental health. Mesquite is the place that offered solace, a park I’d walk to near the house began what would be a workout regimen. I also decided to return to school as I was healing and enrolled in the local mesquite community college (Eastfield). Best decision I ever made! This city has been my home for a few years after living in Dallas my entire life. The hustle & bustle is a bit less, I’m thankful for the change. The streets need work, that’s my only concern!
Mesquite is a good sized but loving suburb. The people are nice and their are always different job opportunities for people. The schools at Mesquite are some of the best I have seen. The opportunities at the schools and the job offers are amazing. Mesquite is not too small but, certainly not too big. There is nor much traffic when you are driving around which is always a good thing!
My experience with Mesquite has been amazing! For the most part, Mesquite is a very safe community with loving members that distribute to our community. I am involved in community service learning opportunities that help my community grow. In the 17 years I have lived here, safety has never been an issue. Mesquite has plenty of great restaurants, art centers, shopping centers, and outdoor activities.
