The 12 Best Places In New Mexico To Explore On Foot

Since it’s the fifth largest state, the simplest way to travel through New Mexico is usually by car. However, once you’re in these 12 cities and towns, it’s easy to explore on foot. Follow an established walking tour past historical buildings, or ditch the map and wander down whatever gallery-lined alley strikes your fancy. When available, I’ve included links to free walking tours; if you’d prefer something more organized, consider signing up for a guided walking tour.

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/
