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.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Ruidoso vacation builder.

March in Ruidoso sees daily highs of 17°C and lows of 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
