Ruidoso is a village in Lincoln County, New Mexico, United States, adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like White Sands National Monument and Spas. Visiting Lincoln National Forest and Valley of Fires Recreation Area will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ruidoso: Socorro (Mineralogical Museum & National Radio Astronomy Observatory), Alamogordo (Heart of the Desert, Giant Alamogordo Landmark, &more) and St. Joseph Apache Mission Church (in Mescalero). There's lots more to do: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, cruise along Singing Road, find something for the whole family at Pillow's Funtrackers, and stop by The Ruidoso Trading Post.
