Ruidoso

Whether you come for a few days or stay for a week, Ruidoso is the sort of place that will remain in your heart long after you return home.

This area of Southeastern New Mexico contains nearly 8,000 people.

Santa Fe, the state capital, is roughly 160 miles to the north of Ruidoso, while Mescalero is 8 miles to the south.

Take the entire gang to Pillow's Funtrackers, a lovely place to spend some time with the kids.

Sit back and have a couple of drinks, place a bet or just take in the sights and sounds at the Casino Apache.

Sick of just seeing the inside of hotels and restaurants? Enjoy a wholesome afternoon outdoors at Free Spirits at Noisy Water. Smokey Bear Historical Park is another great place to spend time with friends, get some exercise and watch the clouds roll by.

With piles of flyers and maps at the ready, Billy the Kid Scenic Byways Visitors Center is a great place to find out what's going on in Ruidoso.

Surrounded by green trees and cool grass, Grindstone Lake is a nice escape for local wildlife and visitors alike.

It's been said that, "If you look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." Keep this in the back of your mind as you experience Valley of Fires Recreation Area.

When it's a rainy day out, head over to the Museum of the Horse or the Smokey Bear Museum and Gift Shop. Walk the halls at your own pace as you admire the collections, or just enjoy a moment of relaxation in one of the quiet nooks and crannies.

Like to gain a deeper appreciation for art and culture? Visit the Hurd-LaRinconada Gallery and surround yourself with beauty.

The Hubbard Museum of the American West and the Carrizozo Heritage Museum will provide you with a better understanding of the forgotten past through their fascinating exhibits.

To browse local fashion and pick up some souvenirs, spend a few hours at Lotza Stuff and White Oaks Pottery.

Traveling golfers can always find a good spot to work on their swing at the Cree Medows Public Golf Course and the Links at Sierra Blanca.

If you're here during the colder months, you'll have no excuse not to head up to Ski Apache. Even if you've got no interest in skiing or snowboarding, there's plenty of other things to keep you entertained.
