'True thirty' lets you explore New Mexico's must-see sights

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M - There's a reason New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment.


From the breathtaking views from Brazos Cliffs to the valley of the Valles Caldera, our state is rich in natural beauty.

"When you're looking for something really spectacular, beautiful, Carlsbad Caverns is still wildly under-visited by New Mexicans," Rebecca Latham, New Mexico Tourism Department Cabinet Secretary said.

Take a sunset stroll as the moon casts an amber glow on White Sands National Monument. It can not only be romantic but a fun place for the kids to slide down the dunes. 

And don't forget about the Taos Gorge Bridge.

"You don't even need to go to the Grand Canyon, because the Taos Gorge is perfectly incredible just in its own right," Latham said.

In addition to the breathtaking sights, New Mexico is a state rich in history. One notable figure, Billy the Kid, left his footprint all over the state.

"So you could be doing something, or be somewhere where he visited or was the scene of a famous Billy the Kid occurrence, and you wouldn't even know it," Latham said.

Now, with the Tourism Department's "True Thirty," you can track where Billy the Kid has been, and any of the 30 must-see attractions you have visited.

"Then all the places you haven't been, we have an interactive map, that shows you all over the state, talks to you about all the attractions there are, and what you need to know, how far they are, what you can do there...just a very easy way to get some travel inspiration," Latham said.
