Located in the American Southwest and tucked between Arizona and Texas, New Mexico is a state that is bursting with hints of colonial history and culture.
It is still very much an American state. However, its historical past under Spanish and Mexican Colonization is preserved in New Mexico’s cities and towns. Post-colonial architecture still stands amongst the city scape of New Mexico, as these gems are strewn everywhere!
Aside from its scenery, its location in the sunny Southwest makes for pleasantly balmy weather. Summer temperatures during the month of July often reach a high of 33 degrees Celsius, while winter weather often calls for temperatures to be as low as 2 degrees Celsius. Autumn however, possesses a milder climate, making it the perfect destination for fall.
The month of October is a particularly exciting time to visit the state. All eyes are on the Albuquerque skies during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This week spells a mass exodus for over 600 balloons, decorating the New Mexico skies with bursts of vibrant colors. This is a beautiful spectacle to witness at least once in your life!
Though it may not necessarily be at the top of the list of places to travel, New Mexico is an undoubtedly unique, unassuming and beautiful destination to visit during fall.
