Las Cruces New Mexico Culture cuisine

What does it mean to make it onto a top 20 list of most overlooked U.S. Tourist Destinations? One thing for sure is that it means Las Cruces ranks up there with some of the best places to visit in the United States!

Mentioning the gorgeous Organ Mountains, White Sands National Monument, and Prehistoric Trackways National Monument, DK Eyewitness Travel places Las Cruces at #10 on their list of 20 Most Overlooked Cities in the USA.

Making it onto this list means we have a whole lot to offer without the crowds and high prices found in the major U.S. tourist destinations. A vibrant arts scene and local wine and ale tours also make an appearance on the list as one of the reasons Las Cruces gets a mention.

With so many amazing places to visit in our vast country, it is great to see Las Cruces getting a top billing among U.S. tourist destinations. Click here to see the whole list.
