Ruidoso Attractions

Rio Ruidoso means "noisy river" in Spanish and it’s this splashy river that lends the mountain community of Ruidoso its name. Positioned near the northern border of the Mescalero Reservation, Ruidoso has witnessed major moments in United States history, including hundreds of years of habitation by the Mescalero Apache Tribe and the travails of Billy the Kid. That's not all—Ruidoso features the charms of a resort town, including sprawling golf courses and a neighboring ski hill on Sierra Blanca Mountain, making it a year-round vacation destination for every type of traveler.
