San Antonio, Texas to Carlsbad, NM

Jump to last reply


After many years, my wife and I are making a return visit to Texas in late March of 2017. We will be flying into the Dallas area and renting a vehicle. We will work our way down to San Antonio visiting various places along the way. Our original plan was to then drive to New Mexico to see some sights and eventually to the Phoenix, AZ area before flying home.

After researching distances etc., I have concerns with the drive from San Antonio up to Carlsbad, NM. We were going to take interstate 10 west to Pecos and then route 285 up to Carlsbad. Some of the distances between towns are quite lengthy. From those of you who may have driven this route, can you provide some idea as to the terrain and what to expect? I did notice there are several ghost towns on the route. We may decide to change our plans and skip the New Mexico/Arizona portion this time around.
