What Bert Has To Say About Las Cruces Metro Area


Las Cruces is a small agricultural and transportation center and home to 17,000 New Mexico State University students. It is also the gateway to historic, geologic, and recreational sites, including White Sands National Monument to the northeast. The downtown is small, clean, and quiet, with an old-west style historic district converted to a pedestrian mall. The campus lies south of downtown with commercial/retail areas just east.
