Wanting to visit a different, one-of-a-kind place this summer? Head on over to White Sands National Monument located off of Highway 70 between Alamogordo and Las Cruces, New Mexico. This national monument, proclaimed and established by President Herbert Hoover, features one of the world's most natural wonders. Gypsum sand engulfs approximately 275 square miles of desert, and a major portion of this dune field is preserved along with the plants and animals that live here.

White Sands National Monument features many fun activities for the young and old alike! Whether you want to take a Full Moon Hike, sled down the large dunes, take a sunset stroll, or enjoy getting crafty and experiencing hands-on learning, this monument has something for everybody!

And while you are there, make sure to stop by our Alamogordo Running Indian store located off of Highway 70, 4 miles North of Alamogordo. We have everything from postcards, to New Mexico souvenirs, and even Handcrafted Native American pottery and jewelry. Let us show you what true southwestern hospitality is all about!
