11 Privileges New Mexicans Have That The Rest Of The U.S. Doesn’t
What are some experiences you imagine when thinking about New Mexico? Perhaps the mouthwatering smell of chiles roasting in late summer, dramatic thunderstorms passing over landscapes, and that relief of narrowly avoiding stepping on goat’s heads barefoot?
Life in New Mexico has plenty of unique experiences and we think even quite a few perks. If you need help thinking of some privileges New Mexicans experience every day here, we have a few suggestions.
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/
