Whether you’re speeding along Interstate 40 or seeing the sites along Historic Route 66, the East Mountains make for a restful stopping point in central New Mexico. While you’re here, don’t forget to look up and experience our starry night skies. Not only can you see the Milky Way, but you may even catch a satellite or two orbiting above (really, our skies are that clear).

Local Lodging options include a new, multi-story hotel with indoor pool and gym, a classic Route 66 motel (still owned and operated by the original family), and RV Campgrounds (some even have horse facilities).
