Lincoln, New Mexico Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

The small town of Lincoln is steeped in wild west history, its colorful past painted by the Apache Indians and characters such as Billy the Kidd and Kit Carson. Lincoln is part of a National Historic Landmark which encompasses a ten square mile area, and the town is active in preserving the area and the history which put it on the map.

Interestingly enough, the town of Lincoln has shunned the plastico fast food and motel franchises that have sprung up almost everywhere else in New Mexico and visitors will find only locally owned dining and accommodation options are available here. In addition to Lincoln's history and heritage, the rolling grasslands and foothills of the Sierra Blanca Mountains incorporated in the Fort Stanton Recreation area spread to the west of town, offering visitors to this area a good variety of recreational opportunity.

Lincoln is best accessed via east/west US Highway 380 through Roswell or Carrizozo. To learn more about Lincoln, select a topic of interest from the left-hand navigation bar.
