I don't think many people other than Texans will know where Ruidoso is. We are known for chiles, Taos, Santa Fe, Breaking Bad, Balloon Fiesta, trout fishing in the NW of the state, skiing, native culture, UFOs, beautiful outdoors.

Come to Las Cruces and area for the beautiful Organ Mountains and the monument, the great Dripping Streams area, White Sands area about 45 miles from here, great sunsets, some of the worlds best Mexican Restaurants, variety of events at New Mexico State U.
Also some great locations to visit while you are based here, would be Hatch, Silver City, daytrip to Palomas, Mexico, and a day trip to the great city of El Paso.

On a trip this past year, we met folks from Iceland and several different areas of the UK. The only thing any of them knew about New Mexico was Breaking Bad. That's our image in many places outside the US.

Philmont Scout Ranch. I remember going there when I was about 8 years old and I heard some scouts from back east talking. I thought they talked really funny.

Sure they do. Anyone who says "cah" for "car" sounds really, really goofy!

With the Boy Scouts' bankruptcy, the future of the Philmont Ranch remaining a Boy scout asset will depend on the size of the fund that will be created to pay the host of lawsuits.
