Ruidoso ©
Ruidoso is a village in Lincoln County, New Mexico, United States, adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest. Escape the urban bustle at Friends of the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and White Sands National Monument. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ruidoso: Roswell (International UFO Museum and Research Center & Bottomless Lakes State Park) and Alamogordo (McGinn's PistachioLand & New Mexico Museum of Space History). There's still lots to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Lincoln National Forest, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, trek along Grindstone Lake Trail, and contemplate the waterfront views at Grindstone Lake.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Ruidoso vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Roswell International Air Center Airport and Albuquerque International Sunport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to -2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
