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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
