New Mexico Bucket List

November 06, 2020

What are the most unique things to do in New Mexico?

There are many normal places to visit in New Mexico that delight people of all ages throughout the years. There are also places that are wacky, quirky, and a little bit different, but equally worth visiting. Places like Meow Wolf, an interactive art museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico, give experiences that you’ll certainly remember. The House of Eternal Return, which resides inside an old bowling alley, is certainly one-of-a-kind.

What are the best road trips through New Mexico?

With so many things to do in New Mexico, it can be hard to get to them all in a timely manner. Luckily, we’ve put together some nifty road trips that will take you to some of the best destinations in the Land of Enchantment, all one routes that you can finish in a day, weekend, or slightly longer. You can learn more about some of these road trips – from a natural wonders route to a trip through some of the state’s ghost towns – by following this link.

Which hidden gems in New Mexico should I visit?

Stop by some of the best New Mexico attractions that not many people know about, and you’ll be glad you did. There is a pistachio farm in Alamogordo that not only has a pistachio tree orchard you can tour but also the “world’s largest pistachio” sitting out front. The Tinkertown Museum in Sandia Park is certainly a unique experience. With old west dioramas and a bunch of antiques or other vintage memorabilia, it’ll take you back in time.
