Ruidoso is a village in Lincoln County, New Mexico, United States, adjacent to the Lincoln National Forest. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like White Sands National Monument and Horseback Riding Tours. Visiting Lincoln National Forest and Bottomless Lakes State Park will get you outdoors.

There's lots more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, cruise along Singing Road, hike along Osha Trail, and admire the verdant scenery at Valley of Fires Recreation Area.
