With school finally out and summer looming ahead, now is the time to get out and about with the family.

Luckily you don’t have to go far, because Mesa, Arizona is home to many wonderful venues, featuring summer events for the whole family. We have a few suggestions for ways to beat the heat and stay entertained throughout the summer.

Mesa is home to the unique and wonderful Commemorative Air Force Aviation Museum, which will thrill kids and adults alike with its vast display of not only aircraft, but also WWII artifacts and memorabilia. Both educational and exciting, visiting the museum is a wonderful way to beat the heat and enjoy a piece of history. The Commemorative Air Force Aviation Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday throughout the summer.

If exploring nature is more your style, but you still want to stay indoors, there is also the Arizona Museum of Natural History. The Arizona Museum of Natural History is the premier natural history museum in Arizona, and is located right here in Mesa! Kids will love the Dinosaur Hall and the Walk Through Time, and they won’t want to miss the hands-on Exploration Station. The museum is open Wednesdays through Sundays all summer long.

For arts and theater, you cannot beat the Mesa Arts Center, located in the heart of downtown Mesa. The Mesa Arts Center features many exciting opportunities for beating the heat throughout the summer. You can catch one of their many shows, from Broadway to Shakespeare, or attend one of their many classes. There’s even a Summer Arts Camp just for the kids! There are lots of ways to get involved at the Mesa Arts Center, so it is a venue you can visit all summer long.

When you’re finished exploring all that Mesa has to offer, be sure to stop by Flancer’s for a bite to eat. Flancer’s is the perfect place to unwind after a long day of activity. Bring the family and meet up with friends! There’s something fresh and delicious on the menu for everybody, from salads and sandwiches to pizza and gourmet burgers.
