The plaza area is a low-key, but interesting area -- especially for those who are interested in Old West History. It includes the court house where Billy the Kid was convicted (now a gift shop) and a Butterfield Stage stop, and several good restaurants (including...More
Beautiful old church in the middle of town very cute and quaint shopping this town has historical events like where Billy the Kid was tried and convicted for murder before he was transferred to a jail and he escaped
I really enjoyed this walk trough time in a village still very much alive. Pay close attention and capture fantastic architectural shots. The town is small and you can walk basically every square meter in a matter of minutes if you hurry, by why hurry?
Be sure to check out the beautiful and historic (but active) Catholic Church in the square. Del Sol has great prices on gifts and souvenirs. Also check out the historic Fountain Theatre still in operation.

Old Mesilla has a wide variety of shops featuring jewelry, Native American pottery and blankets, as well as inexpensive souvenirs. I love the old buildings and history. We missed the Sunday market this time due to a music festival, but that is also extremely enjoyable....More
Old Mesilla is a sweet little New Mexican town, located next to Las Cruces, NM. It is full of Southwestern charm and has everything you could want to buy, in the center of town, from Native American Pottery, Rugs, to beautiful Southwestern Jewelry. Also, there...More
Yes, it’s a bit of a tourist trap. But who doesn’t like shopping for and buying local fare in a quaint little Spanish plaza? Great selection of shops, and a beautiful church at one end. Honestly, the prices are not that inflated. Some of the...More
Hello, I am an undergrad studying at the east coast who will do a summer intern in San Diego. I plan to take a 10-day greyhound bus trip to explore the country, with stopovers at St. Louis, Memphis, Dallas, El Paso, Las Cruces and LA. I plan to take the regional transit from El Paso to downtown Las Cruces, but the subsequent trip will depart from the greyhound station 9 miles north of Las Cruces, and I couldn't find a proper way to reach there from downtown. There are several buses running in...More

The Greyhound bus terminal is just a mile from downtown Las Cruces. Dona Ana is several miles north of Las Cruces. Check again with Greyhound; the address on Thorpe is the place you want to leave from. There is cab service in Las Cruces; you could use it to go to Old Mesilla, or to numerous hotels near I-10 on the south side of downtown.
Planning a Get-away in March (7 Replies)
My husband and I decided to book a quick trip to Las Cruces in March. We are from Wisconsin and are looking forward to higher temperatures and sunshine! We fly in to El Paso on Wednesday and fly out on Saturday morning. This only leaves us two full days to sightsee. I am hoping to accomplish the following: 1. Stop at the Roadrunner for a quick bit. I imagine this wouldn't take up more than 15-20 minutes, but please correct me if I'm wrong. 2. Check out Old Mesilla Village and Plaza. How...More

Dripping Springs and Soledad Canyon are both nice little hikes, but be aware that even as early as March, there's a fair chance they will be not just warm but downright hot in the afternoon. Pick one for a morning hike (Dripping Springs would be my choice), venture back into town for some student-grub lunch near the university, and then head for the farm museum, which you will have passed on the way to Dripping Springs. Coming from a Midwestern farm state (I am a transplanted Midwesterner...More
