The licensed instructors at Skydive Hobbs accompany clients on jumps into a USPA-sanctioned drop zone. The business utilizes the services of a Cessna P206 Turbo aircraft, which, much like a paper airplane shot out of a cannon, is capable of reaching an altitude of 10,000 feet in just 15 minutes. From there, the Skydive Hobbs team carries out tandem jumps, and oversees jumps of individuals working toward getting licenses of their own.
Powered by what is essentially a super lightweight fan with a motor attached, adventurers take to the skies at Phoenix Powered Paragliding with instructors in powered tandem paragliders. During training, teachers illuminate students on how to take off, safely steer, and squawk directions to lost flocks of geese before taking to the skies for one-of-a-kind flights.
The chefs at Centennial Steakhouse at Zia Park Casino do more than sear hand-cut, USDA-quality aged rib-eye, filet mignon, and porterhouse steaks to order. They also handcraft creamy hollandaise sauce for topping grilled asparagus and salmon oscar, roast garlic for flavoring fluffy mashed potatoes, and prepare sweet, buttery lobster tails for storing surplus casino winnings. Along with the lengthy wine list, the chocolate-brown interior's soft lighting and private booths make it an ideal spot for a date.

With four museums and six monuments, the nonprofit Museum of New Mexico Foundation keeps the state's artistic and cultural heritage alive with enthralling permanent collections, exhibits, and events. Art aficionados can marvel at more than 20,000 works by artists with strong ties to the state in the New Mexico Museum of Art, check out more than 1,300 artifacts in the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, and attempt to tape their “lost cat” flyers to more than 100,000 items culled from 100 countries at the Museum of International Folk Art. Meanwhile, the New Mexico History Museum’s 30,000-square-foot exhibition space covers topics ranging from the Santa Fe Trail to World War II through art, maps, and photographs.
After each museum visit, guests can stop by the Coronado State Monument, which marks the spot where Coronado and his crew entered the Rio Grande Valley in search of the Seven Cities of Gold and their lost car keys. The foundation's sextet of monuments also includes the stone ruins of a 500-year-old Indian village at Jemez and exhibits on frontier and military life at Fort Selden.
Pecos Flavors Winery opened fairly recently—in 2004, originally just as a Roswell-based tasting room—but it brims with New Mexico history. The facility's current tasting room, for instance, takes on the identity of a southern New Mexico ranch. Its bar is a century old, plucked from Hondo Valley. Nearby, a statue of Billy the Kid keeps watch, staring grudgingly at anyone who spills their glass.
Befitting its state pride, Pecos has an extensive selection of New Mexican wines. More than 80 different blends of regional wine populate the Pecos collection, including the winery's own varietals grown at a pair of Chaves County vineyards. Pecos offers a number of other New Mexico products, too, such as coffee, sauces, and chocolates, as well as beers gathered from in-state breweries.
