I was never a soaker, spending time to sit in a bath just seemed a waste of time. Then one day I was just so incredibly achy, I gave it a go. I go at least once a month now, sometimes more! This is a must especially for those who just want to take a break and relax or soothe away their aches and pains. The water is artesian which means it is safe...more

New Mexico is one of the oldest places to produce wine in the United states! Pictures to come later. Many states charge you for tasting and visiting, New Mexico doesn't.Let me also start off to say- I am not a drinker, never cared for wine, but tasting is so fun. I always pick at least one bottle at wherever we decide to spend a half hour or so...more
The first room to the left of the desk is the Old Timer's Room. It has lots and lots of photos from the earlier days of Deming. After that is the Dolls Room which also has other toys like train sets and puppets. One item I found particularly interesting was a doll a guy found in the rubble at Hiroshima after the Atom Bomb went off.more
The Deming luna Mimbres Museum has been rated as one of the best museums in the Southwest and I must agree. It has a number of interesting displays that are well presented. The museum is open from 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Saturday and 1:30 PM to 4 PM on Sunday. It is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Easter. Admission is free but...more
The Mimbres are considered an offshoot of the Mogollon Tribe. They inhabited the Southwestern New Mexico area over 100 years ago. The museum has one of the best collections of Mimbres Pottery in existence. They also have other items regarding Native American culture on display in the room including a number of Kachina.more
In the early 1800s there was a war raging between Mexico and the United States. The war ended in 1848 but not the dispute over a strip of land called the Mesilla Strip. During this time a small one room ranchero was built on the site of the Old Custom House. It was sold to R.S. Field in 1885, and in 1888 he sold the property to his father Seaman...more
Deming is the county seat for Luna County. The Luna County Court House was built in 1910 and was designed by W. B. Corwin. There is a nice city park across the street and the Luna Mimbres Museum and the historic Custom House are just a few blocks away. The grounds around the court house are nice and there is a gazebo where they host concerts and...more

They have so many things from sandwiches and pasta, from turf to surf, salad, dessert, and flavored sodas, coffees, and teas. It is a small restaurant, about 7 tables inside and a few outside on the patio. The burgers are nice and juicy, local meat and you can even get the burger size cut in half! I usually only eat half and left overs later are...more
This is a somewhat small area, pub-like but families DO eat here. They have delicious soda pop in tall glass bottles, great way to quench a thirst. Many of the places around Deming have great decor, this place is no exception! The fries are simply perfect, and the burger is juicy!more
You really get your money's worth, and goodness even if you aren't in the mood to eat, they have flan! Seriously though, get the number 14, green, with a fried egg on top. Great free, local-made salsa and chips to munch on while waiting, too! The enchiladas with a fried egg on top. Yes it sounds odd until you try it, even for one such as me who is...more
I asked at the hotel where was a good place to eat. The young man at the counter recommended a Mexican Place but I wasn't in the mood for Mexican. I then remembered seeing an Italian Place down by the historic downtown section. I drove over to Palma's Italian Grill. Now I have high standards for Italian food having lived there for over 4 years and...more
About a 25 minute drive South of Deming is the town of Palomas Mexico. Cross the border and on the left is the Pink Store. I had pork in the locally famous red chili sauce and it was fantastic. Another treat is in Mexico, the soft drinks are made with real sugar and several in our group enjoyed them. Everything looked good. My rule of thumb is...more
