Welcome to Alamogordo!

Alamogordo is a place that inspires people to seek everyday life

adventures while providing a quality of life second to none.

Alamogordo means “big cottonwood”. With a population of over 35,000, Alamogordo is a thriving city transformed from a railroad, ranching and farming hamlet into a progressive vibrant community, intertwined with our military neighbors of Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Range. Located in Southeastern New Mexico between the Sacramento Mountains and beautiful White Sands National Monument, the area is rich in history and natural wonders.

Alamogordo is a wonderful place to live, work, play, stay and do business.

Alamogordo is also the perfect place to visit or raise a family. There are many National Parks and State Parks in the area as well as hiking, camping, and biking. Alamogordo is proud to have The International Space Hall of Fame at the New Mexico Museum of Space History along with quality schools, medical care and housing.
