Did you know that New Mexico was one of the last territories to become a state? Is it a state that you’ve had the chance to visit? New Mexico is full of so many great cities, such as Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Rio Rancho, Sante Fe, Roswell and Alamagordo. There are others, and another thing you will find quite a lot of in the state is national forests. There is Carson National Forest, Cibola National Forest, Lincoln National Forest and three others. So what else are you going to be able to explore while traveling around this great state?
Simply looking at the names of national forests isn’t going to do them justice. You need to know what all you will find there. One way to do that is by looking at what the parks service protects. For example, there is the Aztec Ruins National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns National Park. That list of places to visit, considering you’re going around the entire state, is enough to do. However, let’s take a look at a more diverse group of attractions all over the state.
There is the White Sands National Monument in Alamagordo, and it’s the top ranked attraction in the entire state. Then there is the Sante Fe Opera House, and you can guess where that is located of course. The Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos looks like a really neat and different type of place. Riverbend Hot Springs looks like a great attraction to see, and it’s located in Truth or Consequences. It was mentioned that the attractions would be diversified from here on out. Well, they are, but it is unbelievable how much of what there is to do in the state deals with nature.
If you’re a nature buff and enjoy studying history, this is your vacation destination. You don’t just have one city to explore. You have tons of cities, an entire state, a state that welcomes you and your family to have the best time ever. Tourism is a big part of the economy in New Mexico, and you can see why. They state has so many protected areas.
Take a ton of pictures because that’s the type of trip this is going to be. And while you’re out there exploring all the natural attractions, remember that there are amusement parks and other fun things to do as well. You can do whatever it is you want to do.
