12 Surefire Ways To Spot A Tourist In New Mexico

Most New Mexicans are happy to welcome you to the Land of Enchantment and pleased that you had the good sense to come here. That’s not just because tourism is important to our state – it generates $600 million in state and local revenue each year. We’re also proud of where we live and want you to love it here too. That being said, it’s often easy to tell if someone is a tourist in New Mexico.

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.
