WELCOME TO RUIDOSO
Playground of the Sacramento Mountain chain! Ruidoso offers the All American Futurity in neighboring Ruidoso Downs at the end of the summer horse racing season. The winter months provide downhill skiing at Ski Apache atop Sierra Blanca. ENMU Ruidoso Branch offers year around classes. Historical sites abound in Lincoln County with Billy the Kid's final shootout in Lincoln and Ft. Stanton's history-filled wilderness setting. Other sports available include mountain biking, hiking, and camping in Lincoln National Forest and fishing at Bonito Lake along with golf at the area's six golf courses.
Shops and galleries provide an afternoon's leisurely stroll through Mid-Town and a variety of restaurants are available to appease your appetite. If slots and table games are your choice, the Inn of the Mountain Gods on the nearby Apache Reservation will keep you entertained. Throughout the year, festivals and parades fill the weekends but reading a book in the alpine setting will give you an opportunity to just enjoy our cool climate.
Ruidoso is a place where you will want to retire in your golden years or bring your family for an action-filled vacation. Just watch out for our wildlife on the roads as mule deer and bear are frequently seen and occasionally, a mountain lion. I know that once you come and visit us, you will want to return.
