Whether you’re a local or just spending some badly needed vacation time in Cloudcroft, Cloudcroft offers a quaint mountain village experience that’s great for unwinding from the grind and pressure of a bigger city. From the trading posts and restaurants on Burro Avenue to the hiking trails of the surrounding Sacramento Mountains, there’s lots of ways to recharge your mental, physical, and spiritual batteries.
If you’re visiting Cloudcroft for the first time, you’ll definitely want to make a stop at the Sacramento Mountains Historical Museum and Pioneer Village. Here you’ll find how our little town got its start as a projected lumber source that quickly turned into a vacation spot. That was in the late 19th century, and we’ve been attracting people looking for a mountain getaway ever since. The museum’s historical exhibits contain a startling collection of early Cloudcroft artifacts, and you can stroll through the pioneer village to get a feel of what life was like for the founders of our town. You can even hold events at the chapel; if you are looking for a unique and beautiful site for a wedding, the chapel is a wonderful venue.
Along with fantastic natural scenery and friendly locals, the Historical Museum is just one of many attractions that make a stay in Cloudcroft a nice break from your daily routine. If you’re looking for a spring or summer getaway in southern New Mexico, put Cloudcroft on your radar!
