Between Ruidoso, Cloudcroft and Alamogordo their is plenty to do. Not sure what you are into but there is a ton of hiking, a little fishing and a casino too boot. If you feel like taking a nice, scenic drive you can head over to the solar observatory. The Space Hall of Fame in Alamogordo is cool for the kids.

Good golf courses around too, if you're into that kind of thing. Ponies will still be running at the track. A few good places to eat(Texas Club is good).

That casino will flat suck the money straight out of your pocket. Unless you're very, very lucky.

They frown on a Sig 226 in your front waistband too.

Valley of the Fires, Smokey The Bear museum, White Sands, and up the highway goign north out of Alamogordo (?) there is a site with Indian rock carvings. Also Billie The Kid stuff, Monjeau Lookout (fire tower) where you might see elk/bear at sunrise. There is also an old fort to the north but I can't remember the name.

Three Rivers for the petroglyphs and Ft Stanton for the fort.

We went on year and they were in a drought. Anywhere that you would go to hike or fish was closed due to fire hazard. I do not know there current conditions but you might want to check. We ended up with a lot of time on our hands and nothing to do.

Don't know how old your kids are but the zip lines at Ski Apache are a lot of fun. My daughter and I did them last summer. We rented a cabin thru VRBO at Cloudcroft last year right on the golf course. One of the most relaxing vacations I have been on.

The blackjack table for sure. My wife has had good luck at the roulette table.

I also did well last year at the horse track

It's currently drier than a popcorn fart, but that will hopefully be turning around in the next week.

I just returned from Ruidoso. Very dry. Fire hazard is extreme. It wasn't as cool as typical.

I had to drive up Saturday. It sprinkled in the AM but most dissipated by the time it hit the ground. I think northern NM is having it the worse as far as drought. Praying for a tremendous monsoon season.

I love the area.....especially during the winter. Hopefully the drought breaks by snow time.

It needs to break way before snow time.
