Our World Tuesday - Mesilla NM

Our World Tuesday

December 2014 - Mesilla NM

We stopped in this town before we headed out for Tucson last week. Such a pretty place, it would be great to come back in the afternoon when the restaurants are open.

MESILLA ("LITTLE TABLELAND") IS THE BEST-KNOWN AND MOST VISITED HISTORICAL COMMUNITY IN SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO.

The historic town of Mesilla lies just west of Las Cruces along I-10 and is called New Mexico’s Best Vacation Getaway. It is the epitome of small town charm at its finest, serving as a great location for afternoon shopping and dining, where award winning cafes and restaurants and unique stores surround the town focal point of the historic Plaza. Visitors often enjoy the quiet ambiance of the Plaza with the peaceful back drop of the San Albino Basilica, I posted about the church here..

The history of the Town boasts everything from the Civil War to Billy the Kid.

  8. Looks a fascinating place - if somewhat deadly?! Some good, gruesome, tales to tell anyway. I take it they're not anticipating a white Christmas.
