Visit New Mexico: go glamping

Visit New Mexico and go glamping in this southwestern U.S. state. New Mexico’s diverse landscapes include the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Chihuahuan Desert, providing a wide range of opportunities for outdoor activities and things to do. The capital city, Santa Fe, is a popular destination among tourists and locals know for its luxury spas and Spanish, colonial-era architecture. Here you can visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum which displays the artist’s most iconic New Mexican landscape paintings.

From Santa Fe to Albuquerque, Las Cruces to Ruidoso, Carlsbad to Taos, New Mexico is home to many diverse and interesting cities. Get out of the cities and you’ll see the amazing outdoor landscapes the state has as well. From Santa Fe, you can easily reach the Taos Ski Valley and visit several landmark Native American cliff dwellings, like the Bandelier National Monument or the Taos Pueblo, circa 1000 A.D. South of Santa Fe is Albuquerque, a city that rests between the Rio Grande River and the Sandia Mountains. Albuquerque is home to a balloon festival each year that attracts visitors from all over the country and abroad. Farther south, the White Sands National Monument shows off dramatic white sand and gypsum dunes, while Carlsbad Caverns National Park has impressive underground limestone formations that you can tour. So, forget about Ruidoso hotels, Taos motels, or other city lodgings, and get outside in New Mexico!

Best things to do in New Mexico outside

New Mexico is the fifth-largest state in the country and home to five national forests, 15 national parks and monuments, 34 state parks, and 26 wilderness areas. Whether you’re looking for a week of backcountry camping, mountain biking, a weekend rafting trip, or hiking the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, some of the best things to do in New Mexico are outside.

While it might surprise you, the Rocky Mountains actually begin all the way south in New Mexico. As such, New Mexico is home to some world-class skiing! There are eight ski resorts in total, both in the north and south of the state. Perhaps the most famous are Taos Ski Valley and Angel Fire, which are both in the north; but there is also Ski Santa Fe, Sandia Peak Winter, Ski Apache, and a handful more! Come spring and summer, these same mountain ranges become verdant green natural paradises, perfect for camping and hiking! From dramatic mountaintops to wide, grassy plains and lowland desert, hiking in New Mexico is anything but boring. Places like the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests together cover more than 2 million acres of land and have over 1,000 miles of hiking trails!

New Mexico tourist attractions

There are many other New Mexico tourist attractions, so don’t stop reading there! The Land of Enchantment is home to several natural hot springs, like the Black Rot Hot Springs, Bubbles Hot Springs, Frisco Box Hot Spring, Gila Hot Springs...we could go on, but you get the point. After a few days exploring all the amazing outdoor activities, New Mexico has, take some time to relax and recharge your batteries at one of these hot springs.

New Mexico is also home to a unique and rich arts scene, with museums and art centers in every corner of the state. New Mexico’s enchanting, other-worldly landscapes have inspired artists the world over, among which stand out Georgia O'Keeffe. Visit the Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe in the morning and in the afternoon head out to the Taos Pueblo, circa 1000 A.D., an ancient town belonging to the Tiwa-speaking Native American tribe of Puebloan people. Here you can see adobe houses and architecture and explore an antique way of life. From outdoor adventures to city tourist attractions, New Mexico will surprise and delight you with every turn you take.
