Welcome to Southwest New Mexico

Swarming with folklore, ghost stories, and a ruggedly distinct landscape, Southwest New Mexico gives its travelers a warm and unique adventure! Head out from Silver City to the Gila Wilderness and enjoy the region’s surprisingly thrivent flora and fauna. Backpack the Mogollon Mountains or see the homes of ancient indigenous people at the Gila Mountain Dwellings National Monument. New Mexico State University in Las Cruces is a great destination, with its Art Gallery highlighting artwork from the surrounding region. A short trip to one of the area’s ghost towns like Chloride, Shakespeare or Hillsboro is a fun way to see what the cowboys and pioneers of old left behind! At day’s end take in the stars that stretch so perfectly across the sky over the Southwest!
