Alamogordo is the seat of Otero County, New Mexico, United States. Take a break from the city and head to McGinn's PistachioLand and Heart of the Desert. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Alamogordo: Las Cruces (New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, Old Mesilla Village, & more), Ruidoso (Horseback Riding Tours, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Truth or Consequences (Geronimo Springs Museum & Riverbend Hot Springs). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at White Sands National Monument, immerse yourself in nature at Elephant Butte Lake State Park, stop by Bowlin's Running Indian, and brush up on your military savvy at White Sands Missle Range Museum.
