LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KTSM) – Las Cruces has made it onto Expedia’s ‘Top 11 Solo Female Travel Destinations in the U.S.’ list.
The City of Crosses was listed as number seven for solo female travelers to check out.

The article states that Las Cruces has a commitment to recognizing women in combat and that it is one of two U.S. places with a memorial dedicated to female veterans.
Expedia named the ‘Women’s Veterans Memorial’ as one of the best places for solo female travelers to see. The monument is located at ‘Veterans Memorial Park’ and showcases six life-size bronze statues of women in uniform.
