The city has earned a lot of attention over recent years for being where the headquarters for Virgin Galactic is located. This company is the first of its kind to offer sub-orbital spaceflights.

An Important Agricultural Hub

Las Cruces is the geographic and economic heart of the Mesilla Valley. Being situated on the floodplain of the Rio Grande, the area produces a number of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. A number of agricultural products are shipped out of this region on a daily basis, requiring large and heavy trucks to transport these goods all over the United States and beyond.
