An amazing surprise in Truth or Consequences, NM

Truth or Consequences, NM (yes, that's a name of a town) is, well, how should I say this...? A dump. HOWEVER, J did discover a little hidden gem that was such a special treat -- Riverbend Hot Springs. This Springs/Spa has a public pool but also a bunch of reservable private pools/hot tubs. We opted for a private tub. All of the hot springs look out over the river and to the mountains. You reserve the room for 50 minutes at $30. Definitely worth the money and worth treating yourself to! We thoroughly enjoyed it!
