    The lovely drive through Lincoln National Forest shows nature at is finest and most rugged, especially where natural wildfires leave their marks. The Forest has nice, rustic camping areas.

    Noisy Water Winery is a must stop place. You will not be disappointed. The new building is very nice and spacious. I love the wine taste testing.

    Beautiful theater...went for the free tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and had interesting things to say. Took us backstage (group of maybe 20) and saw the dressing rooms and wall where all the show’s stars had signed their names.

    Dropped in to 'race' the pro-karts. These gas-powered karts have decent performance and the track is fun to drive. Compared to most karting places, at $7 a ride, this track is a bargain!

    Lovely open-air monument! Bronze horses are fabulous. Nice grounds and walking path. No dogs allowed but it does take long to walk through.

    Nice casino, located at the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort. Easy access, lots of slots and plenty of table games. This is not Vegas, but its clean, friendly and a great place to spend some time having fun.
    Several eating places within the facility, from pub grub to a Wendell's for a great steak.

    Nice, easy to access free parking garage, great during the cold winter or snow.

    Lots of character. Plenty of independent shops. The true heart of Ruidoso. Lots of restaurants and unique offerings can be found on Mechem Drive. If you only have a day in town, its worth it to park and walk of one side of the street and down the other. Grab lunch or dinner and souvenir or two.

    Stopped in to check it out but didn't get too far in as the air was so thick with smoke that I couldn't breathe. Would have loved to play the machines but it didn't happen.

    We have a tradition in our family of getting old timey photos, but this is the first with our children. Our children (9,6,6) aren't always the easiest, but the gentlemen that owns the shop was so patient and amazing. He dressed all my boys, posed us and took probably 20 photos. We found the perfect one and it is now a framed family treasure. Yes, the photo is slightly grainy and isn't on the highest quality photo paper, but it is AMAZING! We love it! If you are in Ruidoso, you must stop by for a great experience - you won't regret it!
