Glenrio, New Mexico Is Home To An Unassuming Truck Stop With An All-American Museum And Diner

Not much interrupts the horizon on the long stretch of highway between the Texas border and Tucumcari. The 40-some miles between the two destinations sit flat and arid, a stark reminder of the rural country that dominates this area of the U.S. Travelers feeling parched during this portion of the drive, however, can make a pit stop at one fascinating location.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The diner is open daily from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and the museum is free to view for all visitors. For additional information about the travel center, additional services, and more, visit their website or Facebook page.
