The One Enchanting Place In New Mexico That Must Go On Your Bucket List Immediately

There’s a wildlife refuge hiding in New Mexico that you HAVE to visit. While most New Mexicans and birders are familiar with Bosque del Apache, other visitors to the Land of Enchantment are amazed to discover this natural wonderland.

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/

It’s a good idea to pack a picnic since Bosque del Apache is a little off the beaten path. Alternatively, fill up on green chile cheeseburgers at either Owl Bar or Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio.

The actual refuge is located at 1001 Highway 1 in San Antonio.

Here is the Bosque del Apache website to help you plan a trip.
