We had planned on passing right through New Mexico and only making stops for refueling and sleeping. After passing through New Mexico a few times, I have realized that New Mexico is pretty awesome and has a lot to offer.
In no particular order, here is a list of things we did in New Mexico.
Bandelier National Monument: Dwellings carved into the rock cliffs from the Ancestral Puebloans. Ladders along the way allow visitors to climb up into these old dwellings.
White Sands National Monument: The world's largest gypsum sand dunes. Rent a sled from the visitor center and head to the dunes for some sledding.
Bisti / De-na-zin Wilderness: Like it sounds, it's a bizarre landscape of badlands which offers some of the most unusual scenery found in the Four Corners Region.
The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History: A fun hands on museum the whole family will enjoy.
Very Large Array: A radio astronomy observatory of massive telescopes located in central New Mexico on the Plains of San Agustin.
Hot Springs: There are a handful of hot springs all over New Mexico. With a quick google search you'll be able to find them.
Meow Wolf: A magical life-size-play-house, enter into new worlds through the bedroom closet. A place the whole family can enjoy.
Elephant Butte Lake State Park: Here you can pull up and camp right on the beach. It's also a place you can enjoy the day swimming and hanging out at the lake.
Four Corners: This marks the spot of the four states, Utah - Colorado - Arizona - New Mexico
