There is nothing better than getting out of town for a quick weekend trip. If you don't have time to take a whole weekend off, jump onto Highway 28 and head up to Las Cruces for a fun day trip. There are a number of wineries along the way if you want to make it an adult trip, or you can head up to Old Mesilla and show the kiddos some local history.

No matter why you're heading up to Cruces, go on Highway 28. The pecan tree lined road is gorgeous any time of year.
