You Must Add These Magnificent Ruins To Your New Mexico Bucket List

New Mexicans love their history, especially when they can visit a place and walk in the footsteps of those who came before. Despite being able to visit three spectacular pueblo ruins and Spanish mission remains at once, this National Monument in central New Mexico is one of the least-visited parks in the state. We think it’s time you took a look.

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:

We know some of you have been to Salinas National Monument, or the ruins when they were part of the New Mexico park system. What would you like to tell others about the sites? Would you recommend a visit? Talk to us in the comments below.
