Located in west Mesa, Arizona's third-largest city, the United Amigos area provides the comfortable balance of a quiet residential neighborhood with easy access to shopping, entertainment, and numerous outdoor activities. Named one of the premier cities in the Southwest for bicycling, this community possesses a distinctive blend of history, culture, and the Old West mixed with modernity and an outdoor lifestyle to create a community full of variety and the comfort of home.

Primarily composed of 1970s-era ranch-style homes with large palm trees and accents of Missionary style archways, one may easily come across canals built by the Hohokam Indians hundreds of years ago or a few acres of farmland that manages to survive in this dense urban setting. To explore the great outdoors, simply travel west on U.S. 60, commonly referred to as the Superstition by locals, to South Mountain, or head northeast to the Tonto National Forest. Set in a diverse community, the affordable housing, easy access to major freeways, and institutions of higher education nearby, such as A.T. Still University and Northern Arizona University, make the United Amigos neighborhood a great option for your Mesa apartment.

Restaurants

Whether looking for some family friendly fun or entertainment without kiddos, residents of the United Amigos neighborhood can satisfy their appetites and find plenty of excitement close to home.

For international fare, India Oven serves up a full buffet of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The casual and friendly atmosphere comes with a random mix of Indian decor complete with Bollywood music videos on flat-screen televisions. Locals crave the fresh garlic naan supplied throughout the meal, and the tandoori chicken that comes with it pleases even the pickiest of children. Take-out is always available, and the staff ensures you don't forget your garlic naan.

If your looking for more spice than the North Indian cuisine provides, just travel a few blocks north to Sekai Sushi. After being greeted at the door by the smiling owner, relax, and enjoy a quiet meal while taking in the classic Japanese decor and soft music. A favorite spot for Valentine's Day romance, or father and daughter time, the menu of fresh ingredients includes modified chop sticks and dishes catered to children. Don't feel disgruntled if they are out of oysters. It only means they refused the shipment because it didn't meet the chef's high-quality standards.

When on the move and needing something quick, Lenny's Burgers dishes up large, fresh hamburgers with homemade sauces and $1 root beer floats. Dine inside to get the full 1950s burger-joint experience, or cruise by the drive-up window and keep on moving. Either way, you support a family owned local chain and silence your hunger pains at the same time.

After your meal, jaunt over to downtown Mesa, and utilize over 5,000 spaces of free evening and weekend parking for any number of regular events. Enjoy a themed outing with local businesses, live entertainment, contests, and craft activities for kids once a month at Third Fridays, or catch a movie at the free community cinema series. Attend live concerts at the Mesa amphitheatre.

When in the mood for food and entertainment in one, Organ Stop Pizza provides the place to go. Featuring the largest Wurlitzer organ in the world with over 5,000 pipes, scores of percussions and a multeity of traps, this show like no other happens in a specially designed building with a raised, circular stage and the open feeling of a large opera house. A menu of pizza and classic Italian dishes serves to satisfy all members of your party, young and old.

When looking for something more adult orientated, the notable craft brewery scene in the greater Mesa area surely hits the mark. Enjoy a smooth Vanilla Porter Ale at The Beer Research Institute where a continuously changing line-up of hand-crafted brews pairs nicely with a modest menu of spicy Southwestern flavors and southern barbecue.

History

Built mainly in the 1970s, The United Amigos neighborhood came relatively late in Mesa history. Initially occupied and abandoned by the Hohokam Indians who built elaborate irrigation canals for farming, the Morman pioneer Daniel Webster Jones settled this area in 1877. After decades of growth, Williams Air Force Base was built in 1941 to train World War II pilots, and many military families still call Mesa home.

This community, once primarily composed of farmers, now includes over 100 high-tech firms and many Major League Baseball spring training camps. Nearby downtown Mesa houses the Natural History Museum and the internationally awarded Mesa Arts Center. The Commemorative Air Force Base at Falcon Fields Airport thrills visitors with rides in a B-17 and other WWII air craft, while the Hohokam Temple Mound cultural park and Park of the Canals preserves the Native American history.

Transportation

In a sprawling city about 18 miles long, the United Amigos neighborhood provides easy access to the Superstition Freeway, which extends east out of Mesa and west through Tempe into Phoenix about 15 miles away. Close proximity to Highway 87 spanning north and south also allows residents direct travel around the city.

Although Mesa features over 100 miles of bike lanes and routes, many options for motorized transportation exist. Frequently placed bus stops and low fares of just $4 for a full-day pass give reliable access to local and rapid commuter bus service. The city maintains a continuously growing light-rail system, a dial-a-ride program and a carpool matching service. For a more customized ride, Uber service provides local options.

Cost

A resident can snag a comfortable one-bedroom rental in the United Amigos neighborhood for an average of $544 per month. In a city with an overall cost of living generally comparable to the national average, lower-than-average rental rates give this area an added bonus. Along with affordable rentals, gas prices sit about 13 percent below the national average, making this neighborhood very appealing to young families and college-student budgets. Even $5 for a tasty hand-crafted beer doesn't break the bank.

Shopping

Numerous establishments exist to meet your shopping needs both near the United Amigos neighborhood and throughout the city. The Mesa Ranch Plaza at South Stapley Drive and East Southern Avenue includes the Los Altos Ranch Market for groceries and quality discount stores including DD's. The Mesa Grande Shopping Center just south of there contains an assortment of big-name retailers such as Bath and Body Works, Game Stop, and Walmart Supercenter.

Head over to downtown Mesa for fashion and style at a number of small shops, such as Desert Blossom Salon and Boutique where you can find edgy, classy or mommy-and-daughter fashion, and 10 percent of sales go to the Kids Alive Mission. For a different scene, check out the multitude of gear for rock music fans of all ages at Shirts 'n' Things on West Southern Road. Continue your support of local business, and enjoy a regular supply of seasonal produce and other fresh, local goods at the Mesa Farmer's Market every Friday morning at the Rendezvous Green.

Parks

The United Amigos neighborhood has many parks to choose from depending on what you're after. At Sherwood Park, visitors can work out on the exercise course, play a game of soccer, or picnic while the little ones play on the large playground with a triple slide, a climbing wall and a separate toddler play set. Emerald Park attracts sports enthusiasts with a disc-golf course, and lighted basketball and volley ball courts. Shade trees surround the playground and around the small lake makes for a nice place to stroll.
