New Mexico, where the Sun spends the winter, is waiting for you too.

New Mexico has much to offer in the way of adventure from mountain biking to hiking and horseback riding. Are outdoor activities not your thing? There are countless museums and historical sights as well.

In fact, Santa Fe can give you both. It is a draw for the outdoors lover. You can take a tour through Biological Park located on the banks of the Rio Grande or a biking tour down the Turquoise Trail connecting Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Santa Fe also has indoor activities for those seeking a more low key adventure. Santa Fe offers the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum as well as the US American Indian Museum of Art.

Take a ghost town tour. Ghost towns such as Golden and Madrid were once booming during the frontier days, but have since been abandoned. Most of these towns are still quite intact. There are ancient pueblos, Carlesbad Caverns, big city life in Albuquerque with its art galleries, museums, fine dining and more. Whether you want to shop for authentic Native American jewelry, try hot air ballooning, explore living history museums, you will enjoy Albuquerque.

The small town of Truth or Consequences, lures travelers with hot springs that Geronimo is said to have enjoyed. And in the winter, New Mexico has cross country skiing, alpine skiing, winter hiking, snowboarding and much more, often in places with no traffic lights or the hassle of civilization. In Southwestern New Mexico, more than 750,000 acres of unspoiled terrain form the heart of the Gila National Forest 3.3 million acres of publicly owned forest and range land. From urban sophistication to wilderness, you will find it in New Mexico.

This only skims the surface of what there is to see and do in New Mexico.
