Today's post is brought to you by my mom!
Where in NM have you been? (don't forget Roswell and Carlsbad!) Albuquerque, Grants, Gallup, Roswell, and Carlsbad
What do you like about NM? I was most impressed with Albuquerque. There is far more to do in Albuquerque than any of the other towns we visited.
Dislike? I was most disappointed in Grants. There just did not seem to be a welcoming atmosphere to tourists in Grants. Perhaps we just chose the wrong time to travel through.
Do you have any recommendations for dining/lodging? Dining: Definitely the High Finance Tavern on top of the Sandia Peaks. You have to take the tramway to get there. The restaurant is a little high-end, but well worth it.
Favorite places in NM to hike? Never been hiking in NM, unless you count the walking tour of the Carlsbad Caverns, which I highly recommend!
Entertainment? The Tram is my favorite. You can see across Albuquerque and the sunset from the tramway is spectacular.
What should tourists/vacationers see? If you have no fear of heights, then take the tramway to the top of the Peaks and enjoy a meal at the High Finance Tavern. If you prefer a light workout, then go for a stroll along the paths of the Carlsbad Caverns and take in the natural beauty of the ice cave.
What should tourists/vacationers avoid? Try to eat/visit the restroom, etc in the larger towns in New Mexico. Smaller towns in New Mexico are a bit unfriendly to tourists.
I’m officially out of 50 Nifty guest posts! I would really love to finish the series so please check to see if any of my remaining states are states you’ve lived in or visited! Otherwise we’ll be taking a brief (I hope) hiatus from this series for a while!
