Santa Rosa

A visually charming little town loaded with history, Santa Rosa also has the only body of water in the state—the Blue Hole—where divers can obtain deepwater certification. That spot, along with the Pecos River and other natural bodies of water, were created by ancient sinkholes in the bedrock that drew early peoples and animals as far back as the time of woolly mammoths.
