Las Cruces NM - Trip Home

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Just a quick note and a few photos. We enjoyed our stay in Las Cruces, NM so much we extended a second night (not really, we were just trying to avoid the rain in Texas). Seriously, the hotel was gorgeous! Built in the mid 1940's, it was full of the old Southwest feeling with stenciled walls, tile decorations and handmade furniture.

We took the extra day to take in a movie. Last week we saw "Rush", which we really enjoyed, so this time we tried "We're the Millers" and weren't disappointed. We were the only ones in the theater which was nice because we were both laughing out loud. When we left, my stomach hurt and I still had tears in my eyes. (NOTE: if bad language offends you, don't go!)

From there we moved across the parking lot to have some beer and a late lunch/early dinner at De La Vega's Pecan Grill and Brewery. As we pulled up we saw this interesting custom bike.

We had to try the samplers - nothing really stood out but we found a few we thought were "ok". Dinner was great, seafood taco for Stu and Mediterranean salad for me.

Oh, almost forgot...before we arrived at the hotel we stopped at Barnett's Harley-Davidson and browsed around. Nice store and I snagged a great t-shirt. This is the back...

So we continue our way easterly, dodging rain, layering up for cooler temps and still enjoying the ride!


  1. There's a good chance I'll be going through Las Cruces NM in late Nov. Your description of the motel sounds intriguing. What is the name of the motel? Thanks - Vic

  2. Vic, We stayed at the Best Western Mission Inn and loved it....hope you enjoy it. Another nicely maintained/renovated one is the Best Western Rancho Grande in Wickenburg, AZ (although not as nice as the one in NM, much nicer than most due to its historic flavor).


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
