Roll Down The Windows And Take A Drive Down Billy The Kid Scenic Byway In New Mexico
Looking for a reason to hit the road? Checking out one of New Mexico’s many scenic drives is the perfect way to spend the better part of an afternoon. Of the state’s 25 scenic byways, one we’ll feature today has the perfect combination of beautiful landscapes and history.
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/
You can find details about the scenic route, things to do, and places to dine by visiting the byway’s website or that of the Federal Highway Administration.
