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 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/
