I lived there in 1996 when I was 11 yrs old. I loved Las Cruces but was very young so I didn't do much there other than go to school, ride my bike and play with my friends. I remember the people there were very nice to me though and I made friends quickly in Las Cruces. Las Cruces in my opinion and memory was heavily influenced by Latino culture, and I loved it. The best thing was the food, the hottest salsa I have ever tried was in Las Cruces. Oh, and the weather there was great. Very sunny, and never got too cold. I no longer live there, but Las Cruces will always have part of my heart.
