Fun Way to Spend Saturday! Tour SpacePort America in T or C, New Mexico

Looking for a great way to spend your Saturday? Give the SpacePort America tour a try in T or C, New Mexico. It was a super laid back tour that lasted about 2 hours. It included seeing the SpacePort Operation Center, the runway, the Virgin Galactic hanger, The Gateway to Space, and the art piece, Genesis!

What exactly is SpacePort America? Well, it is the first purpose-built commercial spaceport in the world! Per the website SpacePort America’s vision is to “Become a premier multi-modal Spaceport for point-to-point space transportation, aerospace operations, research, development, and testing in support of our Nation’s commercial, civil, and national security space sectors”. Pretty cool right?

The price of a ticket is $50 and the current tours are held on Saturdays at 10 and 1pm. Here is the link to purchase the tickets!

If you get the chance, I would highly suggest taking the tour. It is a fun way to spend the day!

After the tour, we went to the Truth or Consequences Brewing Company off Broadway to have a refreshing beer and ordered lunch from the Grapvine Bistro across the street!

Tips: Bring some water and comfortable shoes! Make sure you have your driver’s license. Be ready to take some pictures as there are so many cool spots for a photo op!

I’m curious to know if you have had the chance to tour SpacePort and what your thoughts are! Know of any other great day tours in New Mexico?
