What are the best things to do in New Mexico?
I recently moved to Denver, and my new group of friends raves about how great New Mexico is. I’m a freelance graphic designer, so I can work from anywhere. I’m thinking about taking a month to journey around the state, but I’m not sure where to go. What are some of the best things to do in New Mexico?

- Go to White Sands National Park. As one of the only gypsum-sand deserts in the world, the white sands look like they were taken from a tropical paradise and dumped in the middle of New Mexico.
- Visit Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Located beneath the Chihuahuan Desert of southern New Mexico, this national park has over 100 majestic subterranean lairs.
- Head to Roswell. If you love the weird or you have an affinity for UFOs, this alien-themed city pays homage to the supposed UFO crash that occurred near the area in 1947.
