New Mexico Vacation Rentals
When the state is nicknamed The Land of Enchantment, you know you can’t go wrong with a vacation rental in New Mexico! This Western state is home to dramatic rock formations, majestic mountains and cliffs, and wide, open spaces – all with their own unique qualities for fun-filled vacation rentals. Only ¾ of the state roads are paved – New Mexico is so dry that the roads never wash away. And the state is famous for having more sheep and cattle than people – in fact, there are only 12 people per square mile! With these unique combinations, you know that a vacation rental in New Mexico is going to be spent on adventure and fun, not waiting in lines!
The Land of Enchantment is home to a few unusual festivals that are worthy of a visit during your vacation rental in New Mexico. Las Cruces, New Mexico is home to the "Whole Enchilada Fiesta" every October. During this fiesta, the town makes the world’s biggest enchilada -- a current Guinness world record holder! Afterwards the enchilada feeds the entire crowd of 50,000 attendants! Santa Fe is home to the burning of Zozobra, or "Old Man Gloom", a 50 foot marionette whose demise occurs every year in early September. And Albuquerque, New Mexico is home to both the Gathering of Nations Pow-Wow where over 3,000 attendants from various Native American nations gather for dancing and singing, and is home to the World’s biggest Hot Air Balloon Fiesta every October.
A vacation rental in New Mexico is also a great choice for those interested in the history of Native American culture. Taos, New Mexico is right next to the Taos Pueblo, a 1,000 year old Native American village that is considered both a National Historic Site and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Farmington, New Mexico borders the Navajo Nation and is home to the Aztec Ruins National Monument and Salmon Ruins, the site of several ancient pueblos. And Ruidoso, New Mexico is home to Ski Apache, a Native American owned ski resort in the Sierra Blanca mountain range.
So whether you’re visiting Trinity, New Mexico and the home of the first atomic bomb, Carlsbad Caverns and its 16 species of bats, the Roswell UFO Museum in Roswell, New Mexico, or the many art galleries on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, the oldest state capital in the nation, take a moment to pause, look around, and appreciate the beauty around you on your vacation rental in New Mexico.
