Places to Visit in New Mexico After Enjoying Your Medicine

Home of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, New Mexico boasts some of the most remarkable national monuments, including Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks, Gila Cliff Dwellings, and Bandelier. Not to mention the natural parks Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands. If seeking a sky view, Sandia Peak Tramway gives locals and visitors a bird's eye view of the majestic New Mexico landscape. The capital Santa Fe offers so much within its slightly more than 52 square miles for city life. Branded as an avant-garde world art city, Santa Fe features ever-changing exhibits that never fail to leave locals and visitors slack jawed. There is no reason why locals should not carve out some extra time to visit any of the below best places on the way to the dispensary, turning the day trip into unforgettable memories.

Santa Fe

Spending a day in Santa Fe is easy to do. For that matter, it’s best to plan a weekend getaway in the awesome architecture of the New Mexico capital city, home to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and several small art studios. The historic city also offers family fun, with the Santa Fe Children’s Museum and Dale Ball Trails ready to be explored. For an even deeper art experience, some hidden galleries include the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Arts and the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park

While some enjoy touring Santa Fe museums, others like to explore underground in the famous caverns of Carlsbad. Nestled in the Guadalupe Mountains of New Mexico, the national park has two registered landmarks within its protected wilderness. The Junior Ranger program offers adolescents a chance to explore the caves with peers, while basic trails give families a chance to adventure underground together, especially at the limestone chamber.

White Sands National Park

Driving fast up and down huge white dunes is a real thrill, which is why so many return to this national park. White Sands, famous for sledding sands and an interdune boardwalk, is one of the best parts of New Mexico. Unlike any other national park, there is no exact trail for visitors to follow, making their way through as their paths are wiped away by the wind. There is also a Dune Life Nature Trail and the Playa Trail in the park. At the same time, the Dune Life offers glimpses of desert wildlife that live on the edge of dunes and the Playa path, scattered with temporarily full water holes after desert rainstorms.
