9 Reasons To Drop Everything And Visit New Mexico’s Perfect Summer Town

When you think of a destination for water lovers, New Mexico likely isn’t the first place that springs to mind. People who’ve never visited assume that the Land of Enchantment is one large, cacti-strewn desert. Those with a better knowledge of the state are still aware of our limited water supplies. But there’s one place in New Mexico that’s filled with water.

Farmington is located in northwestern New Mexico and is part of the Four Corners Region. While technically a small city, Farmington retains the more intimate feel of a town. That, paired with its abundance of lakes and rivers make it the ideal place to visit during summer.

Throw in some scrumptious restaurants (ahem, Dona Maria) and food trucks like InfiniteBBQ (at 1801 N Sullivan Avenue), along with the chance to stay in a cave and you’re looking at a treasure trove of summer memories. What are you waiting for?
