Northwest Region

Known to its residents as Indian Country, this region is home to Diné and Puebloan peoples whose rich cultural traditions include food and dance rituals. Shop for Native art at its resource, then get outdoors to hike or bike national forests and stunning desert landscapes.

North Central Region

Head north to a region that inspires artists and outdoor enthusiasts alike. It’s home to the highest peak in the state and the cavernous Rio Grande Gorge, as well as Georgia O’Keeffe’s beloved Abiquiú landscapes. Visitors can explore historic adobes in Santa Fe and Taos, encounter Native pueblos, browse world-class galleries, and savor “New Mex” cuisine.

Northeast Region

More plains than peaks, this region’s rippling shortgrass prairie is dotted with hidden lakes. Once the domain of Santa Fe Trail Pioneers and cattle barons, the northeast remains home to working ranches, rugged Westerners, and the storied stops along Route 66.

Central Region

Set in the heart of the state, Albuquerque is New Mexico’s biggest city, and gateway to this striking region along the Río Grande. Here you’ll find abundant Native culture, a lively entertainment scene, filmmaking hotspots, dining, shopping, and the world’s largest balloon fiesta.

Southwest Region

From Old West miners striking it rich to space tourists preparing for liftoff at Spaceport America, this has always been a frontier region. Anchored by Las Cruces and the destination towns of Truth or Consequences and Silver City, it’s also home to world-famous chile, wine-growing regions, and the nation’s first official wilderness area, the Gila.

Southeast Region

This region is home to working cattle ranches and the famous dunes at White Sands National Monument. UFO seekers look to the Roswell skies, history buffs track Billy the Kid’s trail, and casual cavers head deep below the ground to witness Carlsbad Caverns.
