New Mexico

Adventures & Experiences

When people ask for suggestions about places to go or things to do in New Mexico, it is difficult to provide meaningful recommendations without additional information. What part of the state do you want to explore? New Mexico is the 5th largest state in the US. Having Texas next door makes it seem smaller. To really experience New Mexico, more than one trip will be needed.

New Mexico is a nature zone. The opportunities to reconnect with nature are abundant and varied, with birding, hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, ballooning, skydiving, rock climbing, camping, fishing, hunting and spelunking (to name a few possibilities). For outdoor enthusiasts with a penchant for any form of “-ology”, New Mexico is a slice of heaven. From the Gila to the Jemez, the Valles Grande to the Valle Vidal, the verdant vistas of the Rocky Mountains run like a spinal column through the state.

What are your interests? Art, culture, history, nature, anthropology, geology, paleontology, biking, hiking, rocking climbing, fishing, camping? What time of year will you be traveling? It is windy in the spring, though warmer in the south. Sometimes winter storms hit the higher elevations with snow in May.

Alice Cooper

"What most people don't understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. That's why they're always seen in Arizona, New Mexico, and Scotland. Another thing to consider is that all three of those destinations are good places to play golf. So there's possibly some connection between aliens and golf."
