Las Cruces, also known as "The City of the Crosses", is the seat of Doña Ana County, New Mexico, United States. Get out of town with these interesting Las Cruces side-trips: Deming (Deming Luna Mimbres Museum, D.H. Lescombes Winery & Tasting Room, &more) and Silver City (Silver City Museum & La Esperanza Vineyard and Winery). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Old Mesilla Village, appreciate the history behind Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, explore the striking landscape of White Sands National Monument, and gain insight at New Mexico State University.
