Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

  • Caverns of Sonora, Caverns of Sonora Road off I-10 8 miles west of town, 325 387 6507, [1]]. Consistently called by speleologists as one of the most beautiful caves in the country, the cavern has a host of very unique, impossible-looking formations. Guided tours leave every half-hour for a somewhat strenuous 1.5 mile path underground.
  • Eaton Hill Wildlife Sanctuary [2]. 37-acre nature park with 3 miles of hiking trails, with both Hill Country and Chihuahua Desert wildlife. Open during daylight hours. Free.

Eat[edit][add listing]

  • La Mexicana, 240 Highway 277 N # 3088, 325 387 3401. Better than the average small-town Mexican restaurant.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Sleep[edit][add listing]
