6 Enchanting New Mexico Towns That Feel Like You’ve Fallen Into A Snow Globe
Winter has a way of making some of our favorite places look even more charming. Perhaps it has something to do with the glistening snow, the twinkling Christmas lights, or all the food-centered festivities. Either way, we think it doesn’t take much for New Mexico’s towns and cities to look like a scene from a snow globe this time of year. Here’s a peek at a handful that are especially fitting of the designation.
New Mexico’s largest city also happens to be a bit of a hub when it comes to holiday decorations and festivities this time of year. However, there’s something about the historic sections that really brings out the charm and the same can be said for Albuquerque.
2. Angel Fire
When a little town is located in the Rocky Mountains, it’s not hard for it to look adorable in winter. With its lovely scenery, plenty of snow, and epic skiing and tubing hills, this looks the spot for a playful snow globe.
3. Los Alamos
With its parades, festive lights, and outdoor ice rink, we think this northern New Mexico town looks perfectly jolly during the holidays. Now just imagine it with snow gently falling in a perfectly peaceful scene.
4. Red River
This resort town in northern New Mexico also just happens to be the state’s snowiest town. Over the past 30 years, it has received at least 151 inches of snow, perfect conditions for a snow globe town! Add some adorable cabins and festive lights and you have the ideal snowy location.
5. Santa Fe
All those historic buildings covered in twinkling lights and luminarias are just what you would expect to find in a New Mexican town or city. Which spots in Santa Fe would you want to include in a town snow globe?
Snowy mountains and perfect adobe buildings set the stage here. Is there any location that would be a more iconic scene for a New Mexico-themed snow globe?
