2023 Spring Tour to Ruidoso
April 1 - April 2
Join the BMW Car Club of America New Mexico Chapter and Borderland Region on Saturday, April 1, 2023 for a drive to Ruidoso for lunch at everyone’s favorite, The Village Buttery. After lunch and seeing the local sights, you can return via Fort Stanton, Lincoln and Carizozo if you wish or optionally head to Cloudcroft to visit the Burro Street Exchange and the Cloudcroft Brewing Company. Dinner will be at Rebecca’s which is named after the resident ghost of The Lodge at Cloudcroft where we will stay for the night. The number of rooms available are limited, so call 575-682-2566 to reserve a room soon and tell them you are with the NM BMW Car Club to receive a discount. You must make your reservation at The Lodge before March 25th.
If you choose to make this a two-day event, on Sunday, April 2nd, we will walk in the footsteps of Billy the Kid and tour the town of Lincoln, NM. Then head over to Fort Stanton once commanded by Kit Carson and also where “Black Jack” Pershing was stationed. Lunch will be in Capitan followed by a visit to Smokey Bear Historical Park. Some people may want to visit Valley of Fires on the return on US 380 just west of Carrizozo.
We will meet at 8:00 am Saturday in the parking lot of the East Mountain Public Library at 487 NM 333, Tijeras, NM for the trip South to Ruidoso. We will stop along the way to visit the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. Be sure to have a full tank of gas.
Borderland people will meet at the south end of the Lowe’s parking lot 4201 N Scenic Drive in Alamogordo at 11:30am. We will meet up with the rest of the group in Ruidoso. Borderland people interested in a Sunday-only tour should meet in the Alamogordo Lowe’s parking lot at 7:30 am Sunday morning to join up with the rest of the group in Cloudcroft.
