New Mexico Weekend Getaways

This is the place where the Rocky Mountains tumble out into the plains. Wild horses roam here where the plains are flat and endless and surround towns like Cimarron and Las Vegas. But on these distant edges of the Rocky Mountains, there are opportunites for dramatic weekend getaways in towns like Santa Fe, Taos, and Angel Fire. Taos and Angel Fire offer downhill skiing that is superb, and Santa Fe is a beautiful, spiritual place with a rich Native American and Mexican American traditions; reflected in their arts, architecture and cuisine. There are lots of great events held year round here, incuding Mardi Gras in the Mountains in Red River in February or Santa Fe Indian Market in August.

The lower regions of New Mexico see alot of farming. Cities of Deming and Hatch grow and harvest some of the country's best green and red chiles. Las Cruces is a reasonably large city with lots of things to see and do and great places to stay too. Check out Truth or Consequences 60th Annual Fiesta in May or Elephant Butte Balloon Regatta in September. If you like it hot, attend the Hatch Chile Festival in September and if you like it rough, visit City of Rocks State Park!

Yes, this is also the home of Roswell, the holy land for sci-fi enthusiasts, but NM offers some great things for lovers too. Spend a weekend in Riodoso or Cloudcroft and experience mountain beauty mixed with native traditions and history. These little towns ooze Southwest culture. Enjoy a downtown stroll in the western towns of Tularosa and Alamogordo. Experience the Mountain of Blues Festival in Ruidoso in June or Mardi Gras in the Clouds in Cloudcroft in February. Visit Carlsbad Caverns or tour one of the many mission churches in the area!

New Mexico Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!

Hop a Flight

Hop a flight to see The Mission at Riverwalk in Grants or Isleta Pueblo or attend Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in October or Santa Fe Indian Market in August. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider checking out some of the great New Mexico events like New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair in Albuquerque in June or Mardi Gras in the Mountains in Red River in February. A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of New Mexico, but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Albuquerque, and then enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful Gallup resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another. The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say "Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Albuquerque."
