Las Cruces Group Tour Highlights
Historic Mesilla (“Little Tableland”) is the best-known and most visited historical community in Southern New Mexico. Today, many of Mesilla’s population are direct descendents of Mesilla’s early settlers and have retained many of the “hearty folk” qualities of the original founders. The traditional adobe structures and architectural features still remain as a reminder of the long and significant history of the town.
At the White Sands Missile Range Museum you can trace the origin of America’s missile and space activity, find out how the atomic age began and learn about the accomplishments of scientists like Dr. Wernher von Braun and Dr. Clyde Tombaugh at White Sands. Displays also include the prehistoric cultures and the rip-roaring Old West of southern New Mexico.
“Still Everyone’s Favorite Stop on the Old Butterfield Stagecoach Line,” the La Posta Mexican Restaurant is a Registered National Historic Landmark.
