This One Town In New Mexico Is Perfect For An Unforgettable Long Weekend

Deciding where to go for a long weekend can be tricky. Pick somewhere too small and you’ll be hunting for things to do. Choose a larger city and your time there may feel too short. However, some towns were made for long weekends. Whether you’re planning a romantic escape or a girlfriends getaway, Truth or Consequences in New Mexico is one such place.

You have a wealth of options in terms of accommodations. If you’re planning on spending much of your weekend soaking, then check into a hot springs hotel – many offer free daily soaks or discounted rates to overnight guests. More concerned about the budget? Rooms at the Rocket Inn, an updated motor lodge, are extremely reasonable. And camping fans can pitch a tent at nearby Caballo Lake State Park or Elephant Butte Lake State Park.
