On the perimeter of the Chihuahuan Desert, Las Cruces is the home of New Mexico State University and serves as a crossroads between two highways. Once providing temporary lodging for the Mexican general Pancho Villa and Billy the Kid, the city of today is a wonderful blend of history, culture, and modern amenities. Sacred Garden is found at 642 S Alameda Boulevard, in the ideal spot to start your discovery of all Las Cruces has to offer.
Enjoy the interactive experience of the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum or the hands-on displays of The Museum of Nature and Science. Check out the Railroad Museum for an impressive collection of model trains. About five miles south from Sacred Garden, you’ll come to the village of Mesilla, where there’s a charming downtown plaza, authentic Mexican food, and all sorts of shops selling handicrafts.
Just outside of Las Cruces, the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park covers 305 acres and is ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and fishing in the water of the Rio Grande. Enjoy bird watching or just breathe in the fresh air and incredible vistas. For activities near Sacred Garden Las Cruces, we highly recommend Dripping Springs Natural Area.
