New Mexico's official nickname is "Land of Enchantment," and let me tell you, it really is just that. When planning a vacation, most people don't consider the desert as a vacation. They want the beach or a big city experience, but as a New Mexico native, I can personally say it's a hidden gem that's both scenic and rich in history. The culture in the air is as strong as the agave margaritas and smell of green chilli roasting during the Fall, and it's something everyone should experience at least once. There are mountains, desert, snow, sun, and rain, and each season brings a different experience. There are so many sites that are bound to amaze you, but a lot of them aren't too well known.
