Deming is a small town in the southwestern region of New Mexico, USA. It has attained a quirky sort of fame as the site of the Great American Duck Race, one of those little bits of Americana sometimes encountered in very small towns. Interesting country is nearby for the geologist and hiker.

Get in

Deming is on Interstate highway 10, about 60 miles west of Las Cruces and about 80 miles east of the Arizona state line. There is no air service nearby; the closest significant airport is in El Paso, Texas, 50 miles south of Las Cruces.

Deming is a stop along Amtrak's Sunset Limited line, which runs three times a week. The depot is located at 400 East Railroad Avenue.




There's only basic shopping, but souvenirs of the Great American Duck Race are every bit as whimsical as the race itself.



Two wineries, yes, two wineries are present in this desert landscape. Neither one charges for tasting and both charge reasonable prices for their wine.
