New Mexico Last Minute Getaways
As is true in all parts of new Mexico, the best things to enjoy have to do with the Native American tribes and cultures. Cloudcroft and Riodoso are very cool communities with everything from Indian gaming casinos to resorts to ski runs atop awesome mountaintops. There are of course more kitschy stops like Roswell which deliver their own unique quirkiness and appeal. Carlsbad Caverns, Pecos Flavors Winery, or Bottomless Lakes State Parka are just a few notable attractions here. There is a major airport in Roswell (ROW) which, in a big state like New Mexico, is definately preferable to flying in to Albuquerque in the Northwest region.
Further South and West and you can come and watch the chilis get picked in Hatch and Deming, but that's only if your last-minute romantic getaway coincides with the harvest season. This is an agricultural area without much in the way of city entertainment but there are some picturesgue places like Elephant Butte and Caballo Lake which would more than suit the desires of the outdoorsy types. Las Cruces is the biggest city here without a great deal to be noted except for all the modern conveneinces of a good size city. Good mexican food, fine hotels and a nice spot to set out from to see places like the Old Mesilla Village, New Mexico State University, or
City of Rocks State Park.

Last Minute New Mexico Travel Ideas
Head out to the open New Mexico road for a scenic driving tour, all
we recommend is a full tank of gas and an early start. Visit the
communities of Gallup, Tucumcari, Silver City, and Carlsbad pick up an area
map and ask a local about some of the best spots for a drive and
a picnic. Let your adventurous spirit guide you. Fill up the gas
tank, pack a bag, and see where the road takes you! Some of the
most memorable romantic getaways are the ones involving the least
planning. Setting out together without a specific destination can
be adventurous and exciting. Just remember to keep safety in mind.
Be sure and stop at New Mexico winery, or visit Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, New Mexico State University,
or Bottomless Lakes State Park for some extra fun. New Mexico will provide the sites
