Truth or Consequences, New Mexico

The oddly-named Truth or Consequences, New Mexico is a fair drive from the Leisure Time RV lot in Oklahoma, but well worth the trip as your inaugural RV adventure, or just a way to spend your week off from work.

The name comes from the radio quiz show of the same name. The producers of the show announced that they would be airing the show from any town that named itself Truth or Consequences, and the former Hot Springs, New Mexico took them up on the challenge.

Why was it called Hot Springs? Well, once you combine all of the hot springs that run throughout the town, you get 99 litres of hot water per second running through Truth or Consequences. These hot springs are a big part of the reason you should consider a visit to “T or C” as many New Mexicans call it.

Between the La Paloma springs, Indian Springs Bath House, Hay-Yo-Kay, and others, there are more hot springs in T or C than you can shake a stick at, and they all get the job done. You can feel your pores open up and your bones turn to liquid as you sink into the steamy pools of warm water. Step under a cold shower or jump in the river afterwards for a refreshing plunge.

Beyond the hot springs, K-Bob’s Steakhouse, the only location in the franchise actually owned by the Santa Fe company, can serve up a mean sirloin after you’ve spent the afternoon soaking.

T or C is a quiet, small town with a population of less than 7,000. If you’re looking for a relaxing weekend away from home or a pit stop to recharge your batteries on the way across the Southwest, Truth or Consequences will help to reenergize, rejuvenate, and refresh your body and mind.
