New Mexico is an enchanting destination for visitors. It has a rich cultural diversity because it has been a Mexican as well as a Spanish colony. That is why its art scene, as well as the gourmet field, are highly influenced by these cultures.

Geographically New Mexico looks like a square piece of cake. The northwest region holds the rugged landscape of red rocks which is also the blending point of the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. Next to it lies the greener area of the state.

On the southern end, New Mexico has the lush open fields; it is the agricultural hub of the state. On its east is the desert area, which has a uniquely beautiful scenery. In the heart, there is the central New Mexico which holds major population.

Albuquerque, the state’s largest city holds a balloon fiesta every year. Santa Fe is overflowing with culture and delicious cuisines, which is why it is a favorite among the tourists. You can visit quirky parts of the state like Roswell city (crashing ground of flying saucer), Silver City (mining town) or Taos (scenic beauty with great skiing options).

For a dose of history, take a tour of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park (archaeological site), Bandelier National Monument (ancient cliff side cottages) and Carlsbad national park (cave systems). Nature has blessed New Mexico with a diverse natural landscape. Valles Caldera Nationa preserve is present in Jemez Mountains. The White Sands National Monument sports a huge gypsum and sand field.

You can get here by air route, landing in Albuquerque. Getting around is not such a daunting task. You can take public transport or drive. Driving around might turn out to be your best bet. The roads are little tricky so you need to be careful.
