We know you'd like to go somewhere this Spring Break, so the students at Sierra Middle School decided to compose links and reviews of the top five best places to go in New Mexico
during spring break.
1) Bottomless Lakes: A place you can go in Roswell, New Mexico is Bottomless Lakes. Bottomless Lakes is a place where you can cool down in the summer. This is a great place to go if you don't want to spend too much money. The park is only 26 miles away, and only takes about 20 min. to get there.

2) Carlsbad Caverns: Rocky slopes and canyons, cactus, grass, thorny shrubs, and the occasional tree makes it hard to believe there are hidden treasures deep underground. Beneath this rugged land are more than 119 known caves - all formed when sulfuric acid dissolved the surrounding limestone. Carlsbad Cavers is 95.7 miles, and just one hour and 38 min. from Roswell.

4) Hinkle Family Fun Center: Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is open 363 days a year (Christmas and Thanksgiving CLOSED). It opened in April 1994 and owned by Gene E. Hinkle, his wife Betty, and their sons Doug and Bryan. The Hinkle Family Fun Center includes two large buildings, go carts, bungee jump trampoline, a paintball facility, and much more.

5) White Sands: "Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great wonders - The Shining White Sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dune field. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this exceptional dune field, along with the plants and animals that live here."
