New Mexico is located in the southwest of the USA, bordered by Arizona on the west, Colorado on the north and Texas and Oklahoma on the east.
New Mexico is considered as the Mountain States with extensive desert areas. It is the 5th largest state in the USA.
New Mexico has rich history, for many centuries it has been inhabited by natives, and it still has the second-highest percentage of Native Americans in the USA after Alaska (Navajo, Pueblo and Apache tribes).
The name of the state does not come from Mexico, in fact the state gained its name before Mexico established its name.
New Mexico is known for its impressive natural parks such as the Carson National Forest, Cibola National Forest, El Morro National Monument in Ramah, Fort Union National Monument at Watrous and Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument near Silver City.
Some of the nicest history museums here are the Alamogordo Museum of History, American International Rattlesnake Museum and the Aztec Mill Museum. For family fun you can visit Cliff's Amusement Park or the Alameda Zoo Park.
This may be a good introduction to the diversity of nature in New Mexico...

If you have the chance to travel the countryside, you need to see beach camp parks- campgrounds New Mexico (NM).
These campgrounds sit by a lake or a river and offer some great adventures in water sports.
You might try fishing or your hand at water skiing.
Sometimes a relaxing day on the boat just kicking back, reading a book or enjoying the quiet while soaking up the sun benefits a hectic lifestyle.
Even if you find the lake a joy, you still might take a trip to some area attractions.
One place I like to stop at is the Rio Grande Zoological Park. I never leave disappointed no matter how many times I visit. Another great place is the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. People from everywhere enjoy the culture the museum displays.
The lake and river activities keep you busy, but sometimes you need to have some other fun. The beach camp parks- campgrounds New Mexico (NM) do provide something for the entire family.
