New Mexico Is Home To The Ultimate Treasure Hunt And You’ll Want To Do It

Think back to when you were a kid. Remember reading stories about buried treasure and even drawing your own treasure maps? Maybe you took it a step further and began digging in the yard – personally, I blamed the dog!

Well, in New Mexico even if you’re an adult, you can pursue the childhood dream of finding treasure. Simply follow the clues and you could locate a bronze chest that contains loot believed to be worth over a million dollars!

Does a real live treasure hunt appeal to you? It’s a pretty good motivation to see the great outdoors and, even if you don’t hit paydirt, you’ll still discover some gorgeous scenery.
