The World’s First Commercial Spaceport Is Right Here In New Mexico

New Mexico is home to some of the country’s richest history, but history isn’t just in the past for the Land of Enchantment. Just a few years ago, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport was built in our great state, and now you can tour it and learn about what’s to come. We dream of a day where anyone can fly up into the orbit, and we’re getting that much closer to what seems like a science-fiction dream. Head on over to the Spaceport’s visitors center in Truth or Consequences to see all of the action up close.

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:
