15 Slow-Paced Small Towns in New Mexico Where Life Is Still Simple

If New Mexico were a quilt, then small towns would form the bulk of the fabric holding our state together. Life there is vastly different than it is in the city. There’s a stronger sense of community and things move at a slower pace. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or you want to move someplace less hectic, these 15 small towns might provide the solution you’re seeking.

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
