Mechem Drive has most of the shops and restaurants that the town has to offer. It is the heart of the town. Park in public parking and walk up and down the street visiting restaurant and shops.

Though we had to park in public parking and walk, it was really scenic with plenty of places to sit and rest.

This is the very new side of Ruidoso and not for the faint of pocket-bookers. The houses are really beautiful for the area, but not the secluded hideaway type at all. Very much for the rich and famous?

Cruise this "main street" and you will see a number of the area restaurants, cabins, hotels, picturesque shops and boutiques. Stop to meet friendly locals and tourists. Definitely a good overview of the local tourist culture.

The drive is very beautiful in the daytime. Love looking at the cabins and trees. Saw a few deer in the front yards.

I stayed in a condo on Mechem Drive and found it to be a great location, away from the busy town area. Plenty of places to eat and has all the amenities along it.

We took a cab from our cabin and had them drop us off on the edge of the shops/restaurants. Lots of great shops, restaurants and pubs. We actually sat on an outdoor patio at the Noisy Water Winery. Wrote a review from there.
