Santa Rosa, New Mexico
New Mexico
Historically Route-66 travelers found this town of about 2700 population a welcome place to rest and refuel. Nowadays travelers on Interstate-40 still enjoy Santa Rosa’s 19 hotels, 21 restaurants and easy going lifestyle.

Route-66 crosses the fabled Pecos River here in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Often mentioned in stories of the old west, the Pecos carries water from the nearby Sangre de Cristo Mountains to west Texas and ultimately the Gulf of Mexico.

In September of every year Santa Rosa is home to the Route-66 Music Festival and Pecos River Motorcycle Rally.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
