Las Cruces may be considered a smaller city; however, it offers a wealth of entertainment and educational opportunities from a rich mix of cultures. Nowhere, other than Mexico itself, can you find more authentic Mexican food and music. Our area festivals are vibrant and enjoyed by folks of all ages from every walk of life. Where else can you celebrate the making of the world's largest enchilada, cast a vote for your favorite local salsa, or build a raft that's tested by the Rio Grande's rolling water?
The Mesilla Valley and its neighboring areas provide many unique places to visit such as where the famous Billy the Kid was tried for his crimes, and museums that highlight how this desert community's farming gave us international fame. People travel from all over the world to experience White Sands National Monument, the 275 square miles of natural gypsum that served as the location for the blockbuster movie, Transformers.
Our award-winning farmers market provides fresh produce from local growers and crafts that are uniquely New Mexican. And certainly what some say is best of all: when the sun sets after a long day of fun, the sky is illuminated with oranges, yellows, reds, purples, and pinks that reflect onto the breathtaking Organ Mountains. Las Cruces - what an amazing place!
