Do you have a sweet tooth?
Enjoy a square of Cactus Candy! Phoenix is home to the Cactus Candy Company. This hometown hero produces tens of thousands of these tongue ticklers, every day, using actual pieces of prickly pear cactus!
Do you have a Taste for Native American history?
Try a traditional Navajo fry bread dish! According to Navajo history, fry bread was created in the mid-19th century as a substitute for bread during the “Long Walk” of displacement from their native land in Arizona, to New Mexico. Family-owned heirloom fry bread stands dot the state’s national parks and public event centers.
Speaking of history, Arizona’s farming tradition goes back over 4,000 years, to early corn and squash cultivation by tribes dwelling in the heart of the Grand Canyon.
The Hohokam people were a Native American tribe who began employing complex agricultural techniques to grow maize and cotton in Paradise Valley as early as 2,000 years ago; resulting in some of the area’s earliest tribal settlements (they figured out how great Mesa, AZ could be 500 years before anyone else!).
Next time you’re enjoying a corn tortilla or some corn-on-the-cob, remember: there’s a big story behind those tiny grains!
Are you a grill master?
Mesquite trees, once thought of as a nuisance by desert farmers, are now a crown jewel of native southwest cuisine. Mesquite charcoal is commonly used to add flavor to burgers grilled outside the homes of many of Arizona’s RV park residents.
Are you a fan of classical organ tunes? How about 14-inch classic pizza?
If you’re wondering where you could find both under one roof, Organ Stop Pizza is your best bet. This Mesa landmark serves up top quality pizza and entertainment the whole family can sink their teeth into.
If you’re ready to leave the hustle and bustle of LA, or dodge the shrill winds of Minnesota, you can rest assured Palm Gardens has Mesa mobile homes for sale; your ticket to peace, quiet, and fine desert dining.
