Mesa is one of the most attractive larger cities for people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. This makes it a good place to live for young singles in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting their professional careers. Although Mesa is a large city, this demographic is significant enough that young professionals will find many others like themselves here, with really good opportunities for friendships, recreation, romance, and more.
Of the large cities in America, Mesa is one of the most car-oriented. This is reflected in the urban landscape, which features highways, wide streets, parking lots, and shopping centers of all sizes.
