I have been there once a year in March for the last two years.  I stayed at the Encanto Hotel.  It seems like a nice place.  I just go there to do the Battaan Memorial Death March at White Sands Missle Range. But the weather has been nice in March the past two years.

My and FH live in Las Cruces currently. I came here for graduate school and decided to stick around. It’s great here! Right now. . .it’s big blue skies and so pretty outside. I come from around Portland, OR where it’s always grey skies it seems and it’s such a nice change to live here. Also, the food is AMAZING! The desert is a gorgeous place to live. I hope you grow to love the area as much as I do! Once you see the Organ mountains turn pink at sunset, it’ll take your breath away.

My sister lives close to there.  Outside of Las Cruces, it doesn’t sound like there’s too much to do, but she doesn’t completely hate it.  It wa sa big adjustment from a big city life for her, though

If you like green chilis and Mexican food you will be in heaven. Otherwise the town is pretty spreadout like most western cities. My best friend went to NMSU there for 5 years and I would visit occaisionally. There didn’t seem to be much of a cultural downtown but the weather is amazing and the desert is beautiful.

I’ve never been there but I know a few people who do. The parent company that owns the hospital I work at also owns a hospital there so we do a lot of networking. Everyone that I talk to from there loves it!

Coming from Portland, OR it was a huge adjustment, from living downtown to living in a smaller city, but it’s great for outdoor things. Since it’s sunny you can hike all the time, there’s a lot of hunting here, places to go shooting, dirtbiking. It’s a lot of fun. The only thing that sucks is August. It gets really hot but it’s worth it for the year round sun and good weather. I first moved here a couple Januarys ago and I remember going out for a run and being amazed I was wearing a t-shirt and capris, where at home I had to layer and avoid ice.

It’ll take some getting used to definitely, for the first year I did not like it here at all, lol. But after hiking and being outside, I learned to love it.

Chilis and blue skies is what I think of when I think of New Mexico. I really enjoy visiting yearly for the balloon festival. We have friends that live in Alburquerque and they absolutely love it.
