New Mexico Magazine showcases the diversity of its namesake southwestern state, documenting the fiestas and colorful characters of its tiniest communities along with the nightlife and gourmet cuisine of its metropolises. Founded in 1923, the publication stands as the country’s oldest state magazine, still piquing the interest of more than 100,000 readers after almost a century. One of its recurring features, the “Tasting NM” column, delights readers with favorite recipes and food facts, which can range from how to best prepare lamb to the easiest way to boil toast. Each of the magazine’s monthly issues pivots on a theme, such as October's “History and Mystery,” an issue that guides readers on a journey through local heritage, travel, and folklore.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, visitors would stop to rest at the historic El Rancho de las Golondrinas as they began or ended their long journeys along the royal road that stretched between Santa Fe and Mexico City. In the 20th and 21st centuries, Matt Damon, Salma Hayek, Val Kilmer, and the cast and crew of some 30 films used the ranch's 200 scenic acres and 34 historic structures as backdrops to their movies and personalized birthday cards. With preserved and restored villages dating back to the early 1700s sloping through a rural farming valley, the grounds collapse time, bringing the past to the present and the present to the past.
Today, guests wander this living history museum to explore how colonial and frontier life was lived the Southwest. During a self-guided tour, visitors pick up or download a map of the ranch before weaving through a snapshot of history brought to life by villagers clothed in the styles of the time. Feet patter past a molasses mill, a blacksmith shop, and defensive towers where guards kept watch on the horizon and coordinated messages for passing UFOs. With a reservation, docents will lead you through the trails that cut through a landscape dotted with goats, sheep, burros, and horses, fostering an understanding of the culture and arts of historic New Mexico.
Taking full advantage of the rugged and beautiful surroundings of northern New Mexico, the guides and staff of Santa Fe Mountain Adventures curate outdoor experiences that are perfect for escaping the everyday. By working with a collection of local businesses, they provide services ranging from fully-appointed trail rides on horseback to fly-fishing trips on private ranches to rafting excursions down the Rio Grande. Custom designed vacation experiences let adventurers choose from a wide variety of activities, and always incorporate culturally and intellectually enriching elements that they'll remember long after they travel home or decide to live among the iguanas.
The Santa Fe Southern Railway revels in a rich history, one that commenced in the 1800s and was heralded in the Academy Award–winning Judy Garland song "On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe". Connecting Santa Fe to the rest of the country, the train line helped to build the southwestern city's reputation as a great arts destination as it transported visitors and wanderlust-filled paintbrushes to the picturesque terrain. During regular expeditions to nearby Lamy, the railway continues to dazzle riders with sweeping vistas just outside the windows of vintage 1920s train cars, which each sport their own snack and drink bar.
