Ruidoso is a village in Lincoln County, New Mexico, United States, adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Free Spirits at Noisy Water and Links At Sierra Blanca. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ruidoso: Cloudcroft (Trestle Recreation Area & New Mexico Rails-to-Trails) and Alamogordo (Shroud Exhibit and Museum, New Mexico Museum of Space History, &more). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at White Sands National Monument, take an in-depth tour of Fort Stanton Museum, find something for the whole family at Pillow's Funtrackers, and delve into the lush surroundings at Lincoln National Forest.
