Santa Fe, NM, USA
When I say "chocolate tourism", a large number of destinations come to mind. France, Belgium, Switzerland. Britain. South America. Chocolatiers from numerous places around the globe often lay claim to producing the best, the richest, the most...

White Sands, NM 88002, USA
Once a month there is an opportunity to camp under the stars and witness a full moon in White Sands, NM. But rarely do rain clouds fill the sky making for a spectacular display of a gray sky against the stunning white sand. I was lucky enough to...

New Mexico, USA
Located just outside Alamogordo, New Mexico, White Sands National Monument is one of the most beautiful places to watch a sunrise or sunset in the U.S. The combination of a desert sky and pure white sand makes the most striking images. If there...

Ranchos De Taos, NM, USA
Driving north from Santa Fe, just as you approach Taos, turn your head to the right, and there it is--the San Francisco de Asis Church. This 18th-century adobe mission architecture just south of Taos, NM, has become an icon due to the paintings of...

Francisco - Armijo - Otero Addition, Albuquerque, NM 87102, USA
For the countless road-trippers who still follow the old 'Mother Road' through the western U.S., Albuquerque is one of the highlights. Much of the modern city might seem indistinguishable from suburban anywhere, but if you're on your way to the...

228 Old Santa Fe Trail #10, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
The Turquoise Trail is a National Scenic Byway in New Mexico linking Albuquerque and Santa Fe. If you plan to drive to Santa Fe from Albuquerque, avoid the interstate and take this well beaten path instead. You will be rewarded with majestic...

This is what I love about seeing a region from the saddle of a bicycle. You're able to really witness all that is around you, none of it becomes a blur outside of a speeding car window. It was late morning on the second day of a six day biking New...

113 E Palace Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
A local institution, situated since 1953 in a 1692 adobe hacienda with brightly colored walls and a pretty courtyard, the Shed is deservedly famous for its smoky chile, just-hefty-enough blue corn tortillas, and classic recipes. Its sister...

While sitting among treetops on a second-floor deck overlooking the colonial streets of Santa Fe, this menu description captivated me: "Made in the traditional style of Chimayó [a village in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, about a...

15 Entrance Rd, Los Alamos, NM 87544, USA
I’m not sure at what age humans develop the skill to stand still and appreciate scenery, but based on a scientific survey of kids who live in my house, it’s not age seven. (On a trip to the Canadian Rockies, as my wife and I snapped photos of the...

A bit of a dive a mile and a half from Santa Fe’s tourist center, Maria’s has been a local favorite since 1952. The food is straightforward and delicious, but the place is at least as beloved for its margaritas—an eight-page menu lists more than...

193 Paseo De Peralta, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
Don’t let the mall setting fool you. Atrisco is a destination restaurant, run by a third- generation member of a New Mexican food dynasty. Chef George Gundrey used to manage the Santa Fe farmers’ market, so carefully sourced local ingredients...

304 C N, Pueblo St Rd, Taos, NM 87571, USA
"Red or green?" In New Mexico, you'll be asked that question often--it's literally the "official state question," decreed by the legislature: do you want smoky red chile, or fruity-but-hot green chile sauce? If you can't decide, say "Christmas,"...

121 Don Gaspar Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA
The Chez Panisse of Santa Fe has been helmed by the same Berkeley-bred chef-owner since the 1970s. While the restaurant isn’t for New Mexican food purists, the local dishes are solid and range from classic renditions to enchiladas gussied up with...

Of course there are many amazing restaurants in the great American Southwest, and thanks to lots of beans and cheese there are a good number of vegetarian options. My favorite thing I ate in the area was the green chile stew with tofu from Bumble...

Tucked into Santa Fe's medieval-looking St. Francis hotel, Secreto is a place to sample award-winning cocktails in style. Cozy couches and a dim, candle-lit hotel foyer may even entice you (and your drink) out of the bar itself. Sink into a chair...

706 Camino Lejo, On Museum Hill, Santa Fe, NM 87505, USA
Santa Fe has plenty of great museums and regional charm, but don’t pass on this gem because it goes well beyond the Southwest--this museum is a trip around the world. The extraordinary collection does span the globe, a mind-boggling series of...

There is so much art to see in Santa Fe, it's endless. Along with artisan markets, small galleries, the Georgia O'Keeffe museum and numerous small shops, we visited the MOCNA. It's a museum that is connected to the Institute of American Indian...

Few places in North America are anchored in a heritage like the Pueblo of Taos. This is the longest inhabited living arrangement in the US. The Pueblo still has ten families of around 150 native people working to maintain the culture and the adobe...

60 St Francis Plaza, Ranchos De Taos, NM 87557, USA
In Ranchos de Taos, the San Francisco de Asis Church is the most photographed and painted building in the state. I was once in Boston at a gallery and saw a painting that was simply a sandy-brown curve and blue sky. I knew immediately it was this...

Grants, NM, NM, USA
Summer afternoons in New Mexico come with thunderstorms--curtains of rain across the vast semi-arid landscape, bringing out the wildflowers ... About an hour west of Albuquerque, (take State Route 23 south from I-40), you'll see "Enchanted Mesa,"...

Of course I am only kidding. Another stop along the DART - although this one won't be disappearing anytime soon. This picnic area is located in the white sands national monument in NM. The glistening white sand is gypsum and you would swear you...

My two friends and I soaked in some springs along the river. We stayed for three hours until we were fully pruned. To make the organic experience complete, an old naked hippie joined later ranting about anarchy. I swear that water has healing...

Suspended on a catwalk high above the Whitewater Creek, this is no ordinary canyon trail. It begins in a tranquil, tree-lined picnic area along the banks of the river, and winds up far above, alongside sheer canyons walls. The catwalk origins date...

Designed by Albuquerque architect Bart Prince who is known for his unusual, sometimes space-age looking designs, the "snail house" is a fascinating structure. It's not used regularly—apparently the conical snail structure gets a little leaky—but...
