If you are staying in, or even passing through Las Cruces, we highly recommend a quick stop in the Mesilla Village. Other reviewers have noted that it can be difficult to find parking after lunch, however we were there on a rather gusty Saturday afternoon and did not have any trouble finding street parking in front of the Fountain Theater. Everything is fairly compact with most shops located on the square, opposite the San Albino Catholic Church. The best store we discovered was Nambe - where David helped us choose some fantastic silverware and then gave us a military discount. I love a store that supports the military! We were lucky enough to duck into the San Albino Church right after Saturday mass, but our friends tried a couple of hours later and found the doors locked. It is hard to go wrong with the restaurants on the square, but we had lunch at La Posta and loved both the food and the service. This is a fun trip for adults and kids, especially considering the history with Billy the Kid and the ambiance of New Mexico that is all around.
