When to visit New Mexico

New Mexico is a year-round destination, with skiing, snowmobiling, and snowboarding in the winter; and rafting, camping, cycling, hiking, golf, and other recreational pursuits in the spring and summer. Festivals run throughout the year, including the Whole Enchilada Festival, International Balloon Fiesta, and State Fair. The most popular time to visit is during the summer, especially with international visitors, and winter in the ski areas is a strong second. The mountain areas are particularly busy during these seasons. The lowlands are busy with snowbirds in the winter. Christmas is a busy time throughout New Mexico. Santa Fe is popular during all seasons, as is Taos to a lesser degree. read more
