discover the new old west

Ruidoso offers history buffs a region rich in Native American cultures, famous forts and time-honored traditions along with legendary characters and cowboy folklore. An old-west Ruidoso vacation starts with the most important meal of the day and ends with a Texas-sized steak. In between, there’s plenty of time for horseback trail rides, country music and exploring Billy the Kid country.
