Here Are 8 Things Everyone In New Mexico Absolutely Loves
There are plenty of things to love about New Mexico! The food, the scenery, the culture, our list could go on but let’s take a look at some things that we’re pretty sure every New Mexican cannot get enough of.
1. Enjoying the natural beauty surrounding us.
You don’t need to look far to find jaw dropping beauty! A short hike or a day trip in any direction will take you to vibrant landscapes that will show off why New Mexico’s nickname is the Land of Enchantment.
2. But you can best experience it through hiking, camping, or other outdoorsy activities!
Personally, I think the best way to see all that natural beauty is by physically enjoying the outdoors, whether it’s hiking, camping, horseback riding, or boating.
3. Those summer monsoons.
Dramatic and a welcome relief from the summer heat, there’s no feeling quite like anticipating the summer rains, especially in the desert regions of the state.
4. Sunrises and sunsets.
There’s something enchanting about watching the sun rise and set in New Mexico. Choose your favorite spot and watch the day begin or end.
5. Paying a visit to any of New Mexico’s small towns.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy time in the great outdoors, soak in a hot spring, or explore some extremely unique places, you’ll enjoy all the tiny towns spread across the state.
6. Having a bite (or a plateful) of some homemade biscochitos.
There’s a reason why these are the official state cookie!
7. And green chile in any dish.
Need we say more? I think the real question here is what could green chile
8. Seeing farolitos/luminarias light the way during the Christmas season.
These certainly light up our lives, pun intended.
