Rich in history, culture and hospitality, Las Cruces, New Mexico is nestled in the Mesilla Valley against the dramatic backdrop of the Organ Mountains and at the edge of the Chihuahuan Desert. 350 days of sunshine a year means your group can enjoy our local activities, attractions and festivals no matter when you visit.
Las Cruces’ colorful past blends with its beautiful scenery of wide open spaces and breathtaking sunsets in a relaxing atmosphere and culture. Visit Historic Old Mesilla, the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum, Spaceport America or the sparkling white dunes of White Sands National Monument. The Mesilla Valley has a long agriculture heritage that surrounds the Rio Grande River and includes cotton, pecans, pistachios, onions, alfalfa and a great assortment of wines. We would be remiss if we did not mention that Southern New Mexico is the chile capital of the world and boasts the best Mexican food you can get without a passport.
Las Cruces has been recognized by numerous publications including US News & World Report's 2010 "10 Cities for Real Estate Steals," Sunset Magazines "20 Best Towns of the Future,” AARP's 2010 "Best Places to Retire," and Kaboom.org’s most “Playful City USA” – 2009.
