The restaurant is a little pricy, so eat before or after your visit.

The aviaries were fun - the birds can get pretty close. Check out the butterfly section if you're a photography buff; either way, bring a camera for the day!
Bring water if you can. There are vending machines around the park, but it's best to be prepared, right?

As guests of Cimarron, we were treated to a 2 for one entry fee, and there are also brochures at various locations which can decrease the price as well.
Plan to arrive in the morning and spend the day as there are a lot of excellent presentations, and the park is 24,000 square feet so you have a lot of walking/wheeling to do!
Sun screen, hat, sunglasses and water are a must as you set out and the misters along the way really help when the afternoon sun comes out.
An incredible train set has been built that features famous places in the US, such as Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, etc. Steam and diesel model trains snake through mountains, towns and the countryside. I think we managed to spend at least 1/2 hour having a look at everything - we'd never seen a set so large and realistic. The creators are truly talented people - and the docent nearby was most helpful and provided us with an excellent tour of this masterpiece of train set artwork!
Our day at the Living Desert was one of the most interesting (and tiring) days we spent in the area and so we ended it in the only way possible - with a dip in the spa at the resort and a cold drink in hand!
