The Charming New Mexico Trading Post That Has Been Around For Decades

Nowadays, quirky pit stops seem to be fewer and farther between, and that’s a shame because these roadside attractions are an integral part of the road trip experience. So, if you’re hankering for a wonderfully kitschy – and historical – break on your travels through New Mexico, head to the Akela Flats Travel Center.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

This spot is located off exit 102 of I-10. The exact address is 21535 Frontage Road SE, Deming.
