Let’s get number one and number two out of the way right off the bat.

1. White Sands National Monument

2. Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument

White Sands National Monument is a natural playground like no other. When you visit or live around Las Cruces, NM, White Sands is truly a unique and exciting adventure every time. If you are in the initial planning stages of a trip to White Sands, consider planning your trip around a full moon. Throughout the summer months, there are free concerts in the evenings on full moon nights. It will be a night like no other, even if it's not your first time!

The Gila Cliff Dwellings are a bit further away from Las Cruces than White Sands, but it would be unfair not to include this breathtaking experience in our top two. In NM you have many opportunities to climb through history. In the Gila, you have homes carved into a canyon in the middle of a huge wilderness. These homes were carved in the 1280s. Yes, the 1280s. The hike through the area takes about an hour and a half with kids. The experience is rewarding and will last a lifetime.

Now that we have these two wonderful adventures out of the way, let’s take a closer look at some of the hidden treasures around Las Cruces.

We tried including easy hikes that may involve a gate jump (slot canyon), a day drive down the valley shopping, eating and drinking, and a few hikes that aren’t too challenging but tougher than a casual stroll.

It has been a difficult year for everyone. We are very excited to announce that the amenities are open at 25% capacity.

That means you can use our Pool, Sand Volleyball Court, and Fitness Room!

Thank you to everyone who patiently waited for our state to authorize the use of these amenities.

As we understand this year has been tough on everyone, the Governor of New Mexico has decided to re-enact the most heightened level of statewide public health restrictions due to the current rate of spread of the Coronavirus and the impact it has had on our state's hospitals. Therefore, as a community, we must continue to adjust and abide by the updated set restrictions regarding amenity closures, social distancing, mask requirements, etc. This mandate is in place from Monday, November 16, 2020, to Monday, November 30, 2020. The state has developed a tiered county-by-county system that will be used to establish "re-opening" benchmarks for each county upon the November 30th expiration of the amended public health order.
