Wewill be in Silver City for 4 days, beginning Sun the 20th of May. We are interested in Art Galleries, good food, and places to stroll/walk. Of course any info on the Gila Wilderness is also welcome.

Thanks,

Plenty to see and do here!

Lots of galleries in town; see http://www.silvercityartists.org for info on one of several local artists groups.

There is a surprising amount of top-notch food available; the top 7 restaurants listed under Silver City in TA are some of the best we have to offer (note that #4 and #5 are not full-service restaurants but are popular specialty shops).

All kinds of places to walk: the Downtown area (where most of the restaurants and galleries are located) is a favorite; there are also plenty of trails within Silver City and nearby.

The Gila Cliff Dwellings are one of the more popular destinations for visitors. Though the Dwellings are only 44 miles from Silver City, it will take about 2 hours to drive there. Other outdoor attractions in the area include the Catwalk (about 1 hour away) and City of Rocks State Park (about 30 minutes away).

Have you determined where you will stay? One note: from Friday 5/25 through 5/27 is the annual Silver City Blues Fest, and accommodations will fill up fast.

For more info, check out some of the material here on TA as well as websites that cover the area: http://silvercityacd.org , http://mimbresarts.org , and http://silvercitymainstreet.com .
