For the last several years, MONEY has highlighted locations that offer the best value and activities that make vacations memorable. Las Cruces was named as the #3 destination among 20 in the United States, and the reasons are clear!
Las Cruces was recommended for its vibrant arts and cultural scene, along with the bi-weekly Downtown Farmers & Crafts Market that features local food, crafts, and music. The kid-friendly Museum of Science and Nature, the Railroad Museum, the Branigan Cultural Center, and the Las Cruces Art Museum were also noted as must-see attractions.
Beyond the center of town, travelers were encouraged to visit the nearby Prehistoric Trackways National Monument, Dripping Springs Natural Area, and White Sands National Monument.
All of this, with low average airfares into nearby El Paso International Airport and a low average hotel night cost, make Las Cruces an easy choice for MONEY to rank Las Cruces among the Best!
