Madrid, New Mexico Is Hiding The Best Little Photo Park You’ve Never Heard Of
There’s no question Madrid is one of the most unique places you’ll encounter here in New Mexico. Shifting from mining town to ghost town to an out-of-the-way eccentric artists’ community, it’s become known for being one place you won’t soon forget. There are quite a few cool things to do during a visit here — such as dining at the old tavern and purchasing unique folk art or antiques — so be prepared to add another stop to your trip here.
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/
The photo park is open to the public and takes donations for use. You can find additional information about the park and Western portraits by visiting the park’s Facebook page.
