    We really enjoyed the museum. The displays were well done and interesting. The Night Skies show in the planetarium was very disappointing and their projector was broken so we couldn’t see the other movies.

    We stopped by on our way to Ruidoso NM. It’s the oldest Zoo in the state so we thought stop. It was worth the $2.50 (senior discount) for for 45 minute break from the drive.

    We had a great time doing the dune drive route. We got out in multiple areas to climb to the top pf the dunes and then come down. Next time, we will take our horses.

    We camped in our tent for one night at this park. The views were stunning and expansive. The sites were large and included a shelter from the sun/rain. The bathrooms were clean, and included hot showers. This is a convenient location to camp if you're visiting White Sands National Park (only about 20 minutes away) and very reasonably priced ($10). We hiked the reparian trail, which was lovely, but short. We didn't have the time for Dog Canyon. We were disappointed that the Visitor Center was closed due to staffing issues. Otherwise, a good park to visit for a night if you're in the area.

    What a cool place. It’s 5 stories of fun. Everything from rockets to suits, equipment, and of course going to the moon. It’s across 5 floors. Take elevator to the top and it gradually gets you to the bottom floor without having to use stairs or elevator again, which is very convenient. Loved it, must go for all ages.

    This museum seems out of place in Alamogordo, but if you have a few minutes,do stop in. I enjoyed the presentation on the history of the shroud and the scientific efforts taken to document its age. There is a small gift shop with some interesting things including hand-crocheted afghans for a very reasonable price. About a 1/2hour visit is about right.

    This is a wonderful local museum. The history is easy to follow, and the displays are filled with interesting information. It’s clear the people who run this museum care a lot about their areas history, and it made me want to care too. I was really interested by a lot of the information they included, like the stories about the war and the Trinity site, Alamogordos early history, and the geology of the region (shown with hand crafted dioramas!).

    I had a late afternoon hike into the canyon. I am used to hiking the evergreen forests of the PNW. This was an amazing and wonderfully different type of “forest.” A multitude of different cacti and wildflowers. The trail is a bit steep and rocky at the beginning - hiking poles or a walking stick highly recommend, particularly for the descent. I returned about half an hour before sunset and the light was fantastic.

    You could spend hours at the Toy Train Depot and Museum! You can self-guide or a volunteer is happy to tell you about the train memorabilia. The purchase of tickets is for a ride on the train, or the museum or both. What a fabulous way to learn about how trains. This property is heaven for little boys.

    Warning: The Military kept making changes right up to 10 days before the April 2022 open house, so it's important to check their website frequently. They changed the April 2022 dates twice, then required proof of full COVID vaccination and reservations 3 weeks before, then dropped the COVID vax and reservation criteria 12 days before. I was checking their website daily just to keep up. They open at 8AM, so we arrived early at 7:40AM and there were already about 50 cars lined up in front of us at the Stallion Gate entrance. Luckily the Alamogordo caravan did not arrive until we were leaving at about 10:30AM because it included 6 large busses and almost 120 cars, so that's about 600 additional people arriving all at once. It pays to get there early to beat the crowd since they have to bus everyone to the McDonald Ranch House, and souvenir vendors will sell out quickly.

    I recently watched a performance of Shrek at the Flickinger. The performance was fantastic. I sat hear the front, in comfortable seating. The acoustics were very good. The concessions were very well priced. The lobby is small, but once the doors were open to the show, the crowd was minimal.

    I’ve taken my kiddos here a few times and the staff are very friendly and inviting. The events they host and the service they provide to the community is 100%. Sometimes, the kids in Alamogordo need a place to unwind that isn’t their home and Alamo Jump definitely answered the call.

    You are able to pay once for all day use of their jump facility and you are able to bring outside food from other establishments. They offer space for parties and other events and they offer packages so that you don’t have to worry about set up or take down.

    Overall, I love this place and so do the kids. I definitely recommend!

    My wife and I have been a member at this gym for over a year now. I cannot express how blessed I feel to be a part of the EliteFit family, because that is exactly what it is, a family. I was seriously injured a few years back and the excellent coaching by Paul has helped me get back, and even surpass where I was before. The instruction and dedication that the coaches have is unmatched. No matter what age, shape, or goals that you have, Paul will find a way to get you where you want to be. The pricing is extremely affordable, especially for everything you get. If you want to be stronger mentally, physically, and be part of an amazing family environment, I strongly suggest that you try out EliteFit.
