The State Of New Mexico
The Land Of Enchantment
The state of New Mexico is also known as the "Land of Enchantment".
After you’ve spent some time here it’s obvious why. This is an amazing, unique state and I’d like the opportunity to share some of its finer aspects with you.
The Scenery: The vistas of New Mexico are some of the most beautiful in the nation. The towering craggy granite mountains of central and northern New Mexico are well known to skiers and outdoor enthusiasts. Western New Mexico melts into the painted desert where the vibrant colors demand your attention. The eastern side of the state is home to the "badlands", where some of the most interesting rock formations reside.
The Food: No resemblance to Tex-Mex or Cal-Mex food! Oh no. This is New Mexican cuisine and it is delicious. Visit one Mexican restaurant and you'll hear the server ask, "red or green?"
Red or green what?
Chile is spicy, full of flavor, and completely unique to the state of New Mexico. Chile is prepared differently throughout the state so it's worth it to try all the variations and find your favorite. (I'm partial to the cumin-heavy southern version.) We also have a ton of fine dining, fusion dining, and some of the most delicious ethnic restaurants around. (Be sure to check out our Albuquerque restaurants page.)
The People: New Mexicans are friendly, warm, and welcoming. We want you to enjoy your stay in the state of New Mexico and we are more than happy to answer your questions and share our history and culture with you. Many locals have lived here for generations and the stories abound. Just ask!
Don't forget your camera!
