“The mountains are calling,” John Muir once said, “and I must go.”
You must also go: to answer the call of the Bear Mountains, which rise out of the plateaus of New Mexico like ancient gods stretching their fingers toward the heavens. Here is the wilderness in its most untouched form, harmony in nature for you to explore. Our hotels in Silver City, NM provide the perfect place for you to stay while getting a taste of the mountains as you’ve never seen them.
Silver City as you know it sprang to life in the 19th century, when its shining namesake was discovered in the hills. You can roam its charming downtown area in search of that perfect souvenir…or you can give in to the wilderness. After all, that’s why you’ve come, isn’t it? Obtain one of our Silver City rental cars and cruise up to titular Bear Mountain. Hike along paths that have existed for decades, listening to the sweet melody of birdsong and the rustle of wind through the grasses. When you reach the top, take a breath, and look down. How far can you see today?
But the mountain’s true gift to you comes only with the setting of the sun. There is very little light pollution on Bear Mountain…watch the stars wink one by one, gradually increasing in number until a vast tapestry of brilliance stretches across the sky before you. Do you see the Little Dipper there? It almost seems close enough to touch.
Hotels near Silver City provide the perfect place to contemplate the majesty you’ve just witnessed. You could, of course, return to civilization; Albuquerque, with its glittering lights and delicious cuisine, is a mere four-hour drive north. Roam its booksellers for history tomes, then curl up in one of our Albuquerque hotels to pore over them.
Travelocity knows you can only stave off the urge for adventure for so long. Stop putting off your voyage into the great unknown, for you have many miles to go before the end of this journey. Book Silver City hotels today—it’s time to answer to call of the mountains.
