7 Wonders Of The World That Are Actually Right Here In New Mexico

There are so many wonders in New Mexico that it’s challenging to narrow down a list to seven entries. The original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were all made by humans. Since then, lists have emerged detailing the wonders of the modern world and natural world. So we’ve combined some our state’s most impressive manmade and natural marvels into New Mexico’s own 7 wonders of the world.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

What would you include on your version of this list? If we were allowed more than seven attractions, we’d add Taos Pueblo and perhaps Acoma Pueblo.
