Interaction with GuestsPolly and Peter Edmunds, the owners, live next door and will be available if there are any problems but also to advise you about local attractions, if you wish. Avid hikers, they have been exploring the trails in the mountains in the surrounding area for ten years and love to share their knowledge. They are also very familiar with Puerto Palomas, the small town just 30 miles south of Deming across the Mexican border. They can advise you about visiting. Some people may be interested in learning about Border Partners, the organization they founded to assist people in Palomas to improve their lives. The NeighborhoodDeming, NM is a small town with a mild, sunny climate and a Mexican flavor! Surrounded by mountains and only an hour from the Gila Wilderness, it offers hikers and birders access to hundreds of miles of quiet mountain trails to explore just a short drive away. You can even find petroglyphs, those remnants of ancient people who lived in the area. Silver City is an hour north and is a gateway city for the Continental Divide Trail.
Three NM State parks are within an hour of Deming. Pancho Villa Park is known as an excellent birding spot in the winter months. It's ok to take rocks you find home with you from Rockhound Park! At City of Rocks, you'll marvel at the huge boulders left by a volcano in the middle of the desert.
Deming has a renowned historical museum that never fails to amaze visitors with the scope of it's collection. There's a community art center too with a new exhibit each month of work from local artists.
And, of course, you'll enjoy lots of Mexican specialities at local restaurants! If you want to actually eat in Mexico, there are several good cafes 30 miles south - just across the border.
