The Historic Small Town That Every New Mexican Should Visit At Least Once
Zooming by New Mexico’s towns on the highway, it’s surprisingly easy to blink and miss a good number of them. However, you are definitely missing out if you don’t stop to visit at least once. Each is filled with its own personalities that can only be experienced first hand by walking its historic streets, grabbing a bite in their diners, or trekking nearby trails.
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. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Socorro is located in central New Mexico, approximately one hour south of Albuquerque via Interstate 25. You can find additional information about the historic town by visiting its website or Facebook page.
