The New Mexico Tourism Department’s mission is to market New Mexico as an enchanting, undiscovered and richly diverse State with an abundance of natural wonders, history, arts and culture. Within the UK and Ireland, McCluskey International represents the State. New Mexico is renowned for its rich and slightly unusual variety of activities, attractions and events. Choose from visiting the Rio Grande or cultural Santa Fe, one of the oldest cities in the USA, or take part in the great chilli debate, ‘Red, Green or Christmas’, to name just a few. For 2010 there are even more reasons to visit the unbelievable Land of Enchantment:
Eco-tourism – launching in late 2009 is a brand new initiative highlighting the eco-experiences of New Mexico from the history to the soft and hard adventure
Space Travel – the groundbreaking has already taken place for the world’s first Spaceport, and the introduction of Virgin Galactic flights into Space from New Mexico will begin in 2010 or 2011
Scenic Byways –New Mexico offers some of the most iconic roads in the United States with a range of fly drive options – take the Billy the Kid Scenic Byway or how about Route 66?
