Fall In Love with Downtown!

Las Cruces, NM – Love is in the air, and it rings especially true for downtown Las Cruces! In addition to the five traditional love languages, show your love through the five love languages of downtown – art, vibes, love, gifts, and wellness. No matter what stage of life or relationship status you have this Valentine’s Day, downtown is here to help you express love to your partner, friends, and yourself!

This Valentine’s Day, we’re all about PDA – Public Displays of Art!

Downtown is home to some of Las Cruces’s best art galleries. CAV Gallery recently partnered with their downtown neighbor La Vida Project at FYI+ to help the next generation get involved in the arts. Be sure to check the latest exhibits over at Mesquite Art Gallery to see etched glass pieces by Dan Hardcastle. 

Art doesn’t only exist on a canvas. Make Valentine’s Day extra fun this year by getting someone a gift they won’t forget! On February 17, Atom Bomb Studio is offering flash tattoos from 12 PM – 8 PM. You won’t want to miss out on this great deal! 

Set the mood this Valentine’s Day by checking out some of downtown’s coolest places!

Make a date with yourself by grabbing a book from COAS Bookstore. For a thrilling mystery, check out their Agatha Christie selection. Wanting something a little more otherworldly? Coas’ sci-fi fantasy section has plenty of excellent choices to choose from! Take your book out for drinks at Little Toad. Be sure to try their new non-alcoholic cocktails, the Sober Toad Cocktails for a special treat! 

Let downtown create the most romantic date night for you and your partner!
