The State Of New Mexico
The Land Of Enchantment

Welcome To New Mexico's Best Resource & Guide!

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.

Why Would You Want To Visit New Mexico?

Why wouldn't 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: This ain't your momma's Mexican 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. Just ask!

So, What's This Site All About?

I'm glad you asked! I want both visitors to, and residents of, the state of New Mexico to see just how interesting and diverse the Land of Enchantment really is.

The state of New Mexico is an incredibly fun place to visit (and live). Growing up here I've seen it all and done it all. Now, I'm excited to share my secrets about the real New Mexico with you.

Hi! I'm Lynn, and I'm a native New Mexican. I was born and raised in Albuquerque. As I was growing up my parents dragged me all over the state (or at least that was how I saw it as a kid) to satiate my dad's need for the open road. Dad loved to take road trips; he still does.

If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have seen and experienced all that New Mexico has to offer. He instilled in me the love of travel and to explore close to home.

So... thanks, Dad!
