Snapshot: Truth or Consequences

Two hours south of Albuquerque, visitors soak up the hot springs in offbeat Truth or Consequences. Town residents voted to change the name, once Hot Springs, in 1950 in honor of the popular television game show.

The area is hoping for an economic boost from Spaceport America, a commercial spaceport under construction 31 miles south of Truth or Consequences.

Nearby Elephant Butte Lake State Park, the largest state park in New Mexico, is a popular destination for boating, fishing and camping. More than 1 million people visit each year, according to the park.
