NEW MEXICO- The Land Of Enchantment
This year marks the New Mexico Centennial! How exciting! In celebration of such a historic year I wanted to bring to life some of my most beautiful and interesting highlights throughout the state. The words listed above are just a few that describe the different attributes and characteristics of the Land of Enchantment. Everywhere you go, throughout the whole state you will find something magical, all you have to do is be NewMexicoTRUE. What is TRUE? What is true is what is good and pure. New Mexico’s vast land and diverse people are TRUE! Be a part of the NewMexicoTRUE! I know you will have the time of your life.
The Native American and Hispanic Culture are deeply embedded in the ground routes of New Mexico. From the beautiful turquoise jewelry to the spicy GREEN CHILIE, New Mexico is painted with vivid colors and beautiful culture. The pueblo style of homes, buildings and churches makes you really feel the beauty of the culture all throughout New Mexico.
The sun sets in New Mexico are to die for. I do not think there is any other place in world where you can see so many different colored sunsets so clearly. From yellows to reds and pinks you can imagine all the different beautiful paintings you see of sunsets in real life in New Mexico. Did you know that there are seven different types of climate zones across the world? Even more interesting is that New Mexico has six of the seven zones within the state. Pretty cool huh?
There are an innumerable amount of activities or neat places to visit around the state. Some of my favorites are the Hot Air Balloon Festival held in Albuquerque every year, the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, and the horse races at the Ruidoso Downs. In Albuquerque you can also visit the world’s longest Aerial tram in the Sandia Mountains. The view from the tram is beautiful in both the summer and winter. You can see blankets of glistening white powder snow during the winter months… great for skiing and snowboarding. Hiking and mountain biking is extremely popular in the summer months. New Mexico has something outdoors for everyone
There are many different skiing attractions throughout the state. Angel Fire has great slopes for skiing and snowboarding along with a very relaxing country club. Ski Apache and the Sierra Blanca Lodge in Ruidoso are great for getting some good exercise on the slopes!
Toas and Santa Fe are excellent for shopping! The towns throughout these two cities have fun shops that have original jewelry, clothes, and home décor that you cannot find anywhere else!
What makes New Mexico unique is that every aspect of the state is TRUE. It is pure; it is real. New Mexico’s relaxing atmosphere gives you a feel for the state motto “Crescit Eundo”, it grows as it goes. You and your family come visit us! I know you will love it!
