Top 5 Things To Do This Weekend In Las Cruces, New Mexico

Top 5 Things To Do This Weekend In Las Cruces, New Mexico
Saturday is supposed to be 83 degrees, which will be perfect for the Farmers Market.
Last night, I talked with my daughter, who asked me what my top five favorite artists were.
So, really? Where can one start the breakdown of the artists you find throughout your lifetime.
I have had phases. Folk, indie rock, rap, electronica, alt-country, soundtracks, etc.
So, to break down a top 5. That's another email.
With that, let's get to the Top 5 Things To Do This Weekend!
1. Farmers Market - You already know. Our entire Spring Collection of designs is on the floor; you must check them out. I'll be hanging out and happy to share the inspiration behind each design.
Honestly, this is how you start your mornings in Cruces. A cup of coffee from Saturdays Coffee, a burrito from your favorite food truck, and cruising the dogs up and down the strip supporting your favorite artists/vendors.
I can't tell you how much it means to every artist when you buy from them. You can shop on Amazon or online, but when you buy from one of us, it inspires us to keep going and create what we love.
2. Branigan Cultural Center - This is right beside OMO, so it's an easy checklist for you, but you gotta check out the current exhibit Las Cruces: Crossroads of History.
The display unveils the comprehensive narrative of Las Cruces and its significant role in the annals of Borderland from ancient times up to the 1960s. It presents a journey through time, anchored by genuine artifacts and historical photos. It traces the region's evolution from its original indigenous communities through its era of Mexican settlement to its integration into the United States.
Highlighting Las Cruces' founding in 1848, the exhibition explores its development through various lenses, including the lives of Civil War soldiers, ranchers, and outlaws. It delves into the transformative arrival of the railroad in 1878, the significance of New Mexico's admission as a state in 1912, and concludes with the profound changes wrought by World War II and the advent of nuclear and rocket technologies.
3. La Nueva Casita Cafe - Have lunch on the oldest road in America!
La Nueva Casita Cafe, established in 1957 and situated in the Historic Mesquite District along the original Camino Real Route, has firmly established itself as a beloved fixture of downtown Las Cruces. A drive along Main Street downtown, the town site's original hub, is an invitation to embark on an unforgettable dining experience at La Nueva Casita Cafe.
Upon entering the cafe, guests are immediately greeted by a friendly and welcoming staff, ensuring they feel right at home. Rooted in traditional values, La Nueva Casita Cafe's mission is simple: to offer mouthwatering, authentic Mexican cuisine prepared from scratch.
Visitors are encouraged to step inside and discover what Las Cruces has to offer. At La Nueva Casita Cafe, they warmly embrace the sentiment of "Our Casa es Su Casa," inviting guests to experience the true essence of hospitality.
4. Bluebird Running Company - This is the spot for you if you need a new set of hiking or trail running shoes. Bluebird Running Company is a specialty running store based in Las Cruces, New Mexico, owned by the husband & wife team of Zach and Michelle Gonzalez.
The couple, deeply passionate about trail running, found their shared love for outdoor exploration and each other while traversing various trails. With a wealth of experience in road, trail, and ultra running, they embrace every opportunity to immerse themselves in nature's beauty. Their dedication extends beyond personal enjoyment, as they actively advocate for trail conservation and the safeguarding of public lands for the benefit of present and future generations.
In line with their commitment to environmental stewardship, Bluebird Running Company actively contributes to the cause by donating to and collaborating with local non-profit organizations such as the Southern New Mexico Trail Alliance. Through these partnerships, they not only give back to the community but also play a role in preserving the integrity of state and national parks, as well as national monuments. Their collective efforts aim to ensure that these natural treasures endure and thrive for years to come.
5. Pine Tree Trail - Take a hike! This is my favorite trail at Aguirre Spring Campground. The Pine Tree Trail unveils the captivating scenery of southern New Mexico, nestled amidst the untamed beauty of the Organ Mountains. This trail meanders through the rugged high desert terrain, its path gracefully winding amidst a tranquil grove of pine trees, granting hikers access to breathtaking panoramic views.
Along the way, one can expect to encounter a diverse array of plant life, including yucca, agave, and creosote bushes. As the trail ascends, embracing the natural elevation, it rewards adventurers with awe-inspiring vistas that showcase the majesty of the surrounding mountains.
A captivating 4.2-mile loop trail near the vibrant city of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Known for its moderate level of challenge, this route typically takes around 2 hours and 18 minutes to complete. It's a favored destination for hikers, runners, and walkers alike, so expect to encounter fellow outdoor enthusiasts during your exploration. The trail remains open year-round, presenting its scenic allure regardless of the season. Moreover, furry companions are more than welcome to accompany you, with certain sections allowing dogs to roam freely without a leash.
Well, if you can make this all happen, you deserve a treat, and there's nothing better than Caliche's on the way home. Caliche's is our hometown favorite for Frozen Custard, Hot Dogs, and more! They've been creating memories since 1996!
