Mesquite is a city in Texas with the population of 142816 as of 2018 census. Mesquite is located in Dallas County and is among the best places to live in Texas. Probably, this has to do with buildings that offers the resident a feel of suburban comfort in their homes. In addition, Mesquite has lots of tall tree which gives the elderly shades when they take a walk or to visit parks for relaxation. There are lots recreational places near the neighborhood for the residents to visit and to shop for their personal needs which is environmental friendly and very secured. Hence this makes that city one of the best places for the elderly to live.
