Las Cruces is situated in the fertile Mesilla Valley between the majestic Organ Mountains and the meandering Rio Grande (32°19′11′N 106°45′55′W). The city has a total area of 52.2 square miles.
Las Cruces is classified as an arid, subtropical climate. Spring months are warm and can be windy, sometimes causing periods of blowing dust and short-lived dust storms. Winters alternate between cool and windy weather following trough and frontal passages, with warm, sunny periods in between.                                             
The origin of the city's name is unknown. In Spanish "Las Cruces" means "the crosses". The area where Las Cruces rose was previously inhabited by the Manso people. The area was colonized by Juan de Onate beginning in 1598, and he became its first governor.

Overall Guide : Also known as "The City of the Crosses". Must visit the majestic Organ Mountains, to the east, are dominant in the city's landscape, along with the Doña Ana Mountains, Robledo Mountains, and Picacho Peak. The modern "heart" of the city... more is where most stores and restaurants are located, There are a few festivals wich take place in las cruces such as the book festivals, wine , the Whole Enchilada Fiesta, held the last weekend in September, is southern New Mexico's most popular festival, day of the dead and the Renaissance ArtsFaire. The city also holds several museums, I found major interest in the Space Murals Museum in Organ which holds scale models of the Space Shuttle and Space Station Freedom and some relics of the Space Age and moving around is simple thanks to the numerous buses, railways and highways.
