Only a short drive from Anthony in the large city of Las Cruces is the busy, yet cozy, De La Vega's Pecan Grill. Besides the amazing food prepared by a talented chef and staff, the grill serves up one of the largest selections of locally brewed beers in the southwest. A majority of the selection comes from brewers in the state of New Mexico, with other choices coming from nearby Texas. To accompany the vast menu of food and drinks De La Vega's Pecan Grill goes a step further and provides live music nearly every night.
Chamizal National Mem
Not far away in El Paso lies a piece of land that tells a little bit of history of the conflict between Mexico and the United States in the 19th century. The Chamizal National Memorial features a museum that teaches visitors about the dispute to determine who owned the stretch of land formed by the changed Rio Grande River. Visitors are encouraged to not only visit the museum, but also view the three galleries filled with art from the region. Children are also encouraged to take part in special events held periodically, such as crafting lessons and the museum's Junior Ranger Program.
