Silver City, NM – December 5, 2018 – Silver City, New Mexico is the destination chosen time and again by art lovers, history buffs, and those seeking outdoor adventure. While vacationers often look forward to the summer months and make plans for a sunny getaway, Silver City’s mild winter weather and year-round affordability make it an ideal location for a winter trip. 

“The holiday season can be stressful, and many find themselves more in need of a vacation after the holidays than they do during summer months,” said Alex Brown, Town of Silver City Manager. “With affordable lodging and a variety of attractions, there’s no need to spend months saving and planning, just to enjoy a little time away from the daily grind. By choosing Silver City, you can easily plan a stress-free, budget-friendly trip, when you need it the most.” 

To unwind after the holidays, consider walking through history at the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. With cliff dwellings dating back to the 1280s, the site gives visitors a chance to take a look at the lives and homes of the Mogollon people who once inhabited the area. Those looking to expand their outdoor adventure can visit the Catwalk Recreation Area, where they can enjoy a picnic, a hike, or an exploration of hidden places, while taking in the stunning scenery. 

In addition to outdoor and historical adventures, Silver City is known as a hub for artists and art lovers with over 30 art galleries. While in town, visitors can stroll through the historic downtown district, browse local art pieces, and experience life in Silver City like a local. 

“Winter in Silver City is wonderful,” added Brown. “Our temperate climate, combined with our rich history and culture, makes our town a one-of-a-kind destination. Best of all, a visit in the wintertime allows for an authentic and experiential vacation, where you can see all we have to offer, without summertime crowds. It’s the perfect time for immersion into Silver City arts and culture and outdoor activities.”
