A Brief History of Mesa
- Home to almost 440,000 residents, Mesa ranks as the third-largest city in the state of Arizona and sits just east of Phoenix in the heart of the Phoenix metropolitan area. Originally a small smattering of homesteads, Mesa was consolidated into a town in 1878, and the first school was constructed in 1879. In the early 20th century, a power plant was constructed in Mesa, which helped the city expand and grow as it generated a lot of revenue for the city. Population growth has exploded since the 1960’s and the growth of Mesa during the past 50 years or so mirros the growth of the entire area. Today, the city is known for its strong ties to the U.S. military and its location just outside Phoenix makes it a popular location for tourism-related ventures. You can read more about Mesa by visiting the city’s official website.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from Mesa
- Though it sits just east of Phoenix, Mesa’s only really accessible via state route 60, which runs straight east from its junction with I-10. On the whole this isn’t that big of a deal, as most places shippers can get to will be located right along SR-60. The city’s proximity to Phoenix, which is much larger and more popular, makes it easier for shippers to get in and out of the various suburbs, particularly Mesa and Tempe, which also sits just east of Phoenix. You may find prices cheaper if you’re shipping to or from somewhere in Phoenix as opposed to or from Mesa, as this allows shippers to avoid going off the interstate – though the difference likely won’t be much, considering Mesa sits less than thirty miles east of Phoenix. Generally prices will be cheaper in the winter months, as more people are moving into the area due to the snowbird season and more shippers are running routes along I-10 to accommodate the influx of shippers to the region.
