The Oldest Settlement In The Country Is Here In New Mexico And It’s Incredibly Beautiful
Most people don’t realize it, but New Mexico reigns supreme when it comes to historic sites. We’re home to the oldest city, the oldest church, one of the oldest homes, and some of the oldest communities in the country.
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/
