Welcome to the land of deep blue skies and awe-inspiring contrast. Holloman is located in New Mexico’s Tularosa Basin between the Sacramento and San Andreas mountain ranges.
The area surrounding the base is one reason New Mexico was named “The Land of Enchantment.” There is an abundance of yearround outdoor activities for families and singles alike. Members and families can picnic and stroll in the coolness of lush green alpine forests or explore for cacti specimens across great expanses of Painted Desert. Some of the most popular tourist attractions in the Southwest are nearby. Hiking among great mountains with magnificent panoramas is close enough for a day-trip and various ski slopes, for the amateur as well as the most advanced skier, are also available nearby. Many retirees choose to live in this area because of the healthy atmosphere and year-round low humidity of about 35 percent.
