Ruidoso

Ruidoso is a village in Lincoln County, New Mexico, United States, adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fort Stanton Museum and New Mexico Rails-to-Trails. Explore Ruidoso's surroundings by going to Alamogordo (White Sands National Monument, Shroud Exhibit and Museum, & more) and Trestle Recreation Area (in Cloudcroft). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Smokey Bear Museum and Gift Shop, try your luck at Ruidoso Downs Race Track, don't miss a visit to Mechem Drive, and get in on the family fun at Pillow's Funtrackers.
