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. 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:

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.
