You Can’t Pass Up A Trip To See The Glowing Lights At Jemez Historic Site In New Mexico
Whenever I think of winters in New Mexico, I always imagine chilled, dark nights illuminated by twinkling stars and glowing farolitos (or luminarias, if you prefer). Seeing long rows of those vibrant paper lanterns lining sidewalks, fences, and rooftops is an enchanting sight and reminds me of my childhood. In New Mexico, you’ll find displays of these all over the state: in the yards of homes, along the rooftops of local businesses, and even in parks.
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
The historic site will be decorated on December 14, 2019 year from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $10.50 for children 3 to 16. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. You can do so via Facebook or their website.
