New Mexico Travel Guide
Nestled between Arizona to the west and Texas to the east, New Mexico is just north of the border. Despite this state’s arid image, landscapes in the region are divided between more than just deserts and broken mesas. Snow-covered mountains protrude from the ground towards the north and are often surrounded by heavily-forested areas. With a multitude of natural and man-made wonders scattered about the area, it is no wonder New Mexico is a popular choice for people wanting to take out a vacation rental or condo rental accommodation and get away from the stresses of modern life for a while.

Some of the biggest naturally-occurring tourist magnets in the area include the Rio Grande Gorge, White Sands National Monument and the Shiprock.

What makes the White Sands so unique is the fact that they are composed of gypsum, a substance that is highly soluble in water. Under normal circumstances this would mean that the sands would have dissolved and been carried away by rain ages ago. But because they are trapped inside of a basin, they do not get carried away by water, making for one of the most distinct and beautiful desert settings in the world.

Beginning near the Colorado border, the Rio Grande Gorge runs for almost fifty miles, ending southeast of the town of Taos. At a depth of eight hundred feet around the Gorge Bridge, this behemoth of a landmark has been providing tourists with unforgettable vistas since its discovery.

Shiprock is another great natural feature of the land worthy of a visit. Coming about as a result of millions of years of erosion of softer material around it, this massive rock protrusion was once the throat of a volcano and has been the subject of much mythology for Native American populations in its vicinity. Vacation rentals in the state will give you a chance to visit all of these wonderful places.

With a vacation rental accommodation in New Mexico you may want to visit the capital, Santa Fe. Home to a mix of Spanish and American architectural styles, this city offers countless opportunities to immerse you in rich culture. Known as a center for multicultural arts, Santa Fe has has a very high concentration of artists and galleries displaying their works. Canyon Road in particular is renowned for its art gallery density and is a favorite destination of tourists. Lodging accommodations in the area will also give you access to a plethora of museums such as the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian and the New Mexico history Museum.

Once you’ve explored the city limits refill on energy in one the many culturally diverse restaurants offering fine dining. If you are looking to stay active make plans to go hiking, biking or ATVing in the state’s vast countryside.

All of our condo rentals and other types of vacation rentals and accommodations are certain to be near something interesting and exciting.

As a friend describes "It's like a ride on a very nice old train".

King Size four-post bed, Air conditioned, full kitchen, Satellite TV, private bathroom with Jacuzzi. (Two more apartments will be ready next year.) Once you're settled in, time to check out the Ranch. The National Park Service, in their publication "The Cattleman's Empire" described the million acre ranch as "Overshadowing all other ranching operations in the Southwest", and “The L C Ranch remains as one of the last surviving Great Ranch Houses of the Old West”. The cattle, cowboys and million acres are long gone. Cattle Baron Tom Lyons was murdered in El Paso in 1917. An Englishman, Tom Lyons' feudal empire collapsed shortly after his demise. His 27 room adobe mansion, lavishly refurnished, remains along with all the outbuildings of the Ranch Headquarters.
