Any Given Saturday

In each episode host Michael Newman ends the show with a simple question: "So what are you doing this weekend?" This episode aims to give you some easy answers by gathering both new and old options for ways to explore New Mexico. So, what ARE you doing next weekend? #NewMexicoTrue

Through the Gila and Into the Mesilla

Southern New Mexico has gems for travelers that are both of the hidden and the highlighted sort. And you can be as active and adventurous as you choose, climbing or riding...or relaxing and watching as natural wonders surround you. This is a collection of some of the favorites the True TV Crew  found as they explored southeastern and south central New Mexico.

Health & Wellness

New Mexico is brimming with the energy and adventures of non-traditional, unusual, spiritual, mystic, and holistic approaches to health and wellness. The True TV Crew set out to sample some of the activities a visitor can explore across the state. This ranges from using horses for a personal encounter and understanding session, to massages, to health-based cooking classes, and of course some hot spring soakings.

Urban Meets Pastoral

Albuquerque is the state’s largest city, and has many of the expected “big city” attributes. But what it has most is character, and that is reflected well in the mix of urban amenities with rural relaxation. Filled with fans of buying local, the shopping and the restaurant scenes abound with homegrown warmth. And with the Rio Grande and urban forest (or bosque) running through its center Albuquerque is a city like no other.

Touring the State’s Capital

Few places in the country can claim the collection of history, culture, cuisine and art that help make Santa Fe so special. The New Mexico True TV Crew share that and much more, including the scenery, flora and fauna, of the state capital that easily earns its nickname, "The City Different."

Flavors of Albuquerque

Travel treats for your tastebuds. That could sum up the opportunities offered by the wide variety of dining options in Albuquerque. And this isn't just about the great local restaurants (though those abound.) The True TV Crew ventures to farms, bakeries, and those mobile feasts known as food trucks. All to take a bite out of the Flavors of Albuquerque. #NewMexicoTrue (and tasty).

In & Around Carlsbad

This southeastern New Mexico city has far more to offer than just those famous caverns. The food, the fun (at the beach, no less!), and the close encounters with desert wildlife are all among the great experiences the NM True TV Crew discovered. Oh, and they also had a great cavern adventure.

Go West!

In this episode the NM True TV Crew gives us a wide-ranging look at what this region of New Mexico offers the traveler. From the amazing hikes, to the relaxing wineries, to the face-to-face encounter with wolves, it is all part of the adventure you can share as you "Go West."

Weekend in the Jemez

You can find adventure, beauty and cultural experiences by heading just about any direction in New Mexico. But the real secret is to pack as much of that fun as possible into whatever travel time you have available. So a location such as the Jemez Mountains is ideal, since the area offers a distinctly different adventure around nearly every bend. The NM True TV Crew makes a noble effort to share it all here, but you will no doubt find your own adventures as well. The Jemez Mountains are #NewMexicoTrue


Unique Lodging

So you’re traveling New Mexico, in pursuit of adventure that feeds the soul, and need a place to stay. Well the True TV Crew has just the place(s) to add excitement and memories to your lodging choice. In a classy cave or a classic camper, in the dirt or in a yurt, it is all available…and all uniquely True. 

The New Mexico True TV Crew has some favorites (we should say MANY favorites) from traveling the state. In this episode they’ve gathered just a few of those classic segments, in this case all from the northern half of the state. 

It isn't a place called Manhattan, but a project. Beauty, history and technology all blend in Los Alamos. And in the past 100 years the work based in this mountain town has, quite literally, changed the world. Much of what the world knows about Los Alamos is tied to a single moment and an explosion in the desert. But the city and the state have much larger tales to tell, both about scientific research and about people. #NewMexicoTrue

New Mexico is rich in culture and history, and the Native American impact on those two elements helps provide a visitor with unique opportunities and experiences. In this episode Michael and the True TV Crew share the adventures they discovered on their travels to Native American gatherings, auctions, ancient ruins, and even kitchens. #NewMexicoTrue

Placed as it is in the center of New Mexico perhaps it is only natural that Socorro and its surroundings are the center of activity for an adventurous traveler. From rock climbing to art producing to Wild West horseback rides, the New Mexico True TV crew experiences it all. The Socorro area is, without question, New Mexico True. #NewMexicoTrue

Winter Adventures

Winter in New Mexico is simply a chance to shift to an entirely new set of outdoor adventures. In this episode the NM True TV Crew hits the slopes and the skates, the aerial adventures and the apres ski. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
