Truth or Consequences, New Mexico Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Truth or Consequences has one of the oddest names in America. In 1950, “Truth or Consequences” radio show host Ralph Edwards challenged his listeners to rename their town for one day in honor of the show’s 10th Anniversary. Several communities came forward in response to this challenge; Edwards selected the town of Hot Springs due to its reputation as a destination for the healing arts. When Edwards brought his show to town a Fiesta was held in his honor. Shortly thereafter the town voted to change its name permanently, and its annual Fiesta has been held on the first weekend in May for over 60 years.

Visitors to T or C (as the locals call it) will find ten different hot mineral bath facilities located in the downtown Historic Hot Springs District. Over the past several years T or C has experienced a renaissance. Visitors may now find everything from upscale spa hotels to budget accommodations, home style restaurants to fine dining, shops that offer second hand merchandise to fine art, and two museums: the Geronimo Springs Museum and the Hamilton Military Museum.

The area surrounding T or C offers a variety of outdoor activities. Watersports abound at nearby Elephant Butte Lake State Park, kayak down the Rio Grande, explore the “living ghost towns” of Sierra County, and hike, horseback ride or camp in the nearby Gila National Forest.

Truth or Consequences is located 2 hours south of Albuquerque and one hour north of Las Cruces on I-25. To learn more about T or C, select a topic of interest from the left-hand navigation bar.
