A journey to New Mexico can be a very enthralling and enchanting experience. The state, with its diversity, can be a unique travel experience, offering culturally and traditionally rich places as well as breathtaking natural beauty and charm. Travel can include cycling through the beautiful locales of the Kit Carson National Forest or the Rio Grande Gorge.
A journey to cites like Santa Fe and Taos not only acquaints the tourists with the rich cultural heritage but also satisfies the adventurous streak in them. While the former city is famous for art, literature and music and the desert, the latter is known for being a world- class skiing resort. The rare opportunity of viewing the works of George O'Keefe ad RC Gorman in Santa Fe makes the whole experience memorable.

In northwestern New Mexico, are the Aztec ruins. The journey to New Mexico is incomplete without visiting the national parks in Carlsbad called the Carlsbad Caverns National Park and The Lincoln National Forest, in Ruidoso. Cloudcroft is the perfect place for ice- skating cross-country. In southwest New Mexico, the places worth touring are Deming, Las Cruces and Silver city with its famous Gila National Forest. New Mexico offers the unique combination of the old and new, classic and contemporary lifestyles and is a haven for tourists. A planned holiday makes the trip more enjoyable and adventurous.
