Mesilla, New Mexico

Mesilla is the epitome of a small-town charm at its finest, serving as a great location for afternoon shopping and dining, where award-winning cafes and restaurants and unique stores surround the town’s focal point of the historic Plaza. Rich in history, culture and heritage, this little Town is far from quaint. Art galleries, entertaining events, rich history, unique shops and delicious cuisine are just a few samples that Old Mesilla has to offer. Visitors will find that Old Mesilla is a perfect blend of the past, meeting the present. Guests can take a guided tour of the historic town, compliments of La Morena Walking Tours, breathing in all the wonderful history that Mesilla has to offer while stopping for a souvenir at one of the many shops around the plaza. For those who love cinema, stop in and catch a show at our historic Fountain Theater, the oldest operating movie house in a 200-mile radius.

For the more adventurous traveler, visitors are encouraged to explore the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park for boating, camping, fishing and nature hikes. Today, Mesilla continues to draw people from around the country not only for its rich history and culture, but also for the fiestas and annual events held throughout the year. Visit Mesilla Info Page HERE!
