New Mexico is a celebrated Southwestern state in the Rocky Mountains, forming part of the Four Corners Region and offers iconic Western history, national monuments and natural sites. It’s possible in New Mexico to travel the same trails that the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid rode and see monuments and attractions related to the Lincoln County War. At the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, visitors will explore over 3,000 works from the famed artist. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument has a hiking trail leading to ancient indigenous cave houses, while the Petroglyph National Monument is an archeological site where you can view prehistoric art.

The Four Corners Monument is a landmark marking the spot where 4 states intersect. The Museum of International Folk Art offers cultural artifacts and art exhibits from all over the world. The New Mexico Museum of Art focuses on regional art and is in a historic adobe building. At the International UFO Museum and Research Center, you’ll learn about the accounts of UFO sightings, especially the famed Roswell Crash of 1947.
