With the majestic Organ Mountains to the east and the mighty Rio Grande to the west, Las Cruces stands as an oasis at the junction of I-10 and I-25. New Mexico State University makes its home here, among fine art galleries, informative museums, a lively theater scene, and high desert terrain. The sun nearly always shines in Las Cruces, which enjoys, on average, 350 days of clear blue skies each year! Las Cruces is the perfect base to explore the breathtaking surrounding area!
