Love the little shops all around the center of town. They even have a dinner place with a winery in town to visit. Saint Albino Church is so beautiful when the bells chime.

We Recently relocated back to Las Cruces for retirement. Family was visiting from Ohio so naturally we went to "Old" Mesilla, which is a must see regardless of how many times you visit the area. Gone are the dirt streets and brick sidewalks of my youth' replaced a a beautiful paved and grassy town square. The wrought iron benches are works of art and very inviting. Something always seems to be going on with artists showing off their wares. The large gazebo dance floor still draws the little kids when there is no performers. Someone painted a wonderful picture on a large standing piece of stucco. I'll include a picture if I can. The Basilica of San Albino at one end of the plaza still holds masses and is a popular spot to visit. Billy the Kids is still there for your tourist treasures and ICE CREAM cones! Josefina's Gate, the Double Eagle and La Posta are still dishing out great food. There is a coffee specialty store, Nambe has a store with all the nice kitchen items and gifts. Lots of other stores, and places to eat but I had a hard time finding note cards made from photos of the local area. I found some for Santa Fe. (Come on folks this is something people want.) I can't wait for the next festival or show at the Mesilla Plaza.

A community with much history including the signing of the Gadsden Purchase, the jail that once held Billy The Kid, the oldest operating theatre in NM (Fountain Theatre), fine restaurants, wineries, bars, Basilica de San Albino, Fiestas, and lots of fun stores to shop at.

Good place to take a walk, listen to local musicians who frequently play in the gazebo, let your dog run in the grass or just sit & relax. Caution though, there are many great shops with fun stuff to buy like Nambe’s for instance. Bring your credit card!

Haven't visited the Mesilla Plaza in years. Still a magnificent place to visit and see. Good restaurants and gift shops to explore as well as the history of the area.
