Go For The Cowboy Culture

Gather 'round the chuck wagon to hear an animatronic cowboy tell regional stories of pioneer men and women at the Western Heritage Museum. The Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame also resides here, paying homage to the small town's outsized number of rodeo champs. See today's cowboys rope and ride each August at the Lea County Fair & PRCA Rodeo or grab a seat near the starting gate for live horse racing at the Zia Park Racetrack, also home to a casino and hotel. nmjc.edu/museum, leacounty.net, ziaparkcasino.com

Exhibitions at the Lea County Museum in nearby Lovington relate the region's past and protect buildings that are history lessons in and of themselves. The 1908 Love Home, 1912 McDonald Mercantile & Post Office, and 1918 Baker School all sit on the grounds. leacountymuseum.org

Stay For The Music

Founded in 1983, the Southwest Symphony is one of the foremost music and dance presenters in southeastern New Mexico. The seven-performance season includes classical and pop concerts by the 65-member Southwest Symphony Orchestra and national touring acts ranging from cowboy music to Irish step-dance troupes. swsymphony.org
