Did you know one of the most exciting moments in American history happened on January 6, 1912? If you need to have your memory jogged (don’t worry, we won’t judge you), this is the date New Mexico became the 47th state in the Union. We’ve come a long way since that glorious day, and today we’re going to look at a few of our very favorite parts of life 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/
How many of these do you find yourself agreeing with? Why else do you think New Mexico is the best state?
