Home To Spectacular Natural Views, Enjoy A Quaint Mountain Getaway In Eagle Nest, New Mexico
Looking for an escape this weekend? How does a tiny, rustic town surrounded by natural beauty sound to you? If those sound ideal, then you’ll want to pay a visit to Eagle Nest. Located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico, this little village has a population that barely reaches 300. Combine that with its fairly isolated location and a laidback atmosphere, and this will be a destination you’ll visit again and again.
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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
