Hobbs is the principal city of the Hobbs, New Mexico Micropolitan Statistical
Area, which includes all of Lea County. Hobbs holds the headquarters of the
Soaring Society of America. Hobbs is home to Zia Park racetrack that hosts
thoroughbred and quarter horse racing, and the Black Gold Casino.
Like much of southern New Mexico, the Hobbs area represents the best of the
вЂњhigh desert,вЂќ with its blue skies and warm sunshine. The Hobbs area
exhibits a truly multicultural heritage: Native American legacy, cowboy legend,
farming traditions and Hispanic culture.
Geology buffs can see fossils embedded in the nearby Caprock, evidence of the
different levels of the ancient Permian Sea. Among the most distinct pieces of
evidence of the eons of evolution that occurred here is the complete skeleton of
a wooly mammoth in southern Lea County.
