The Main Street through Ruidoso is Suddreth Dr where all the tourist shops are. Mechen Dr branches off towards Billy The Kid Trail. It is a nice drive and was near our condo there are a couple grocers and several restaurants, also the country club and golf course.

There are a lot of places to eat and places to shop. Had the best steak at The Cattle Baron! The town of Ruidoso is very quiet and peaceful.

Many restaurants, antique and ski places. Careful, it is a speed trap. Recommend te Lincoln County Grill near Sudderth/Mechem. Walmart and Ruidoso Downs Racetrack at one end and Upper canyon touristy places at other end. Stay away from the Denny's except for breakfast.

Its a road with decent businesses on it. The pavement is newer. Way better than Sudderth. Whatever they did to Mechem should be in high priority for Sudderth.

This is one of the main streets in Ruidoso. It is well maintained and provides a great view of the town and its mountainous surroundings. Take a drive and enjoy!
