From desert floor to mountain top, southern New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment, with a variety of climates and terrain to please almost all tastes. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound – we have more than a million acres of National Forest and public land available for horseback riding, snow skiing, hiking and biking, fishing and hunting, exploring and ballooning!
Cultural attractions include arts, music, dance and theater productions at the Flickinger Center for Performing Arts, top name entertainers and casino gambling at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, wine tasting at excellent area vineyards, and visits to historic villages, art galleries, museums and archaeological sites.
Tularosa - the "City of Roses" - is a small village of 3,000 residents set in the Tularosa Basin. It is the oldest town in the area. Tularosa is famed as a center for horse training and as a wine producer, and is well-known for its historic district and the church of St Francis de Paula.
Alamogordo (means “fat cottonwood tree”) is the area’s main population center, with more than 30,000 residents. The town hosts the Otero County Courthouse, a regional airport, and a number of Federal government offices.
Holloman Air Force Base, just six miles west, is home to the US Air Force 49th Wing, the 54th Fighter Group and the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) Flying Training Center.
La Luz, founded in 1863, is a lush, tree-filled community neighboring Alamogordo.
