Ghost stories aren’t an occasion just for Halloween. Specters and eerie apparitions make their presence known every day in the Land of Enchantment. Whether you’re spending the night in a historic hotel, dining in a centuries-old restaurant, or simply strolling down a path, you’re bound to hear of – or even encounter – some of New Mexico’s most famous ghosts.
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.
