Silver City advice / recommendations

DH and I are planning a trip to NM in December. We will be driving from Tucson to Silver City and spending 1 night there. After visiting Santa Fe and ABQ, we will be returning to Silver City for 2 more nights.

We would like to visit Gila Cliff Dwellings, maybe City of Rocks SP, as well as museums in town.

Would the cliff dwellings be a full day trip - how bad is the road there (from what I have read, it is quite narrow and winding). What about road conditions in December?

Is City of Rocks SP worthwhile visiting?

Also looking for advice on somewhere to stay - either a B & B or hotel would be okay - would like to be able to walk to downtown.

Anything else I should need to know, don't hesitate to add it in.

The restaurant at the intersection of NM15 and NM 35 is the Breathe Inn (formerly the Grey Feathers Lodge). About 5 miles east on NM35 is Spirit Canyon Lodge; they have a German cook who makes German specialties on Saturdays.

That's it Mitch, the Breathe Inn, thanks. Again, it's surprisingly good.

Have a good holiday season.
