5 Weekend Trips To This Spring
Spring is in the air, and road trips are in season. Whether it's a family trip, a couples getaway, or a trip to have some time by yourself, taking a weekend trip this spring will be sure to be exactly what you need. Here are a few of our favorite road trips from New Mexico.
1.) White Sands National Monument
Go camping, biking, exploring, sledding and hiking all in the 275-mile white sand oasis in southern New Mexico. This national monument is a huge attraction for the outdoorsman and women! Even if you hate nature and all it stands for, you can still have a fun picnic with a view. Remember temperatures can get pretty hot, especially in the summer season, so be prepared.
2.) Tour a vineyard
What’s better than making wine and drinking it too? With some of the regions best wineries within a short car drive, you’d be crazy to not take your wine loving side on a vacation. There are so many places you can go it’s actually too many to list. The vineyards supply some great views and some great wines!
3.) Go to a farmer’s market out of town
Farmer’s markets are always an interesting time! Try a food you have never had before, buy local produce and enjoy the sights and sounds of somewhere you have never been. Make sure to bring plenty of cash because you’ll probably need it after you see all the delicious food.
4.) Go golfing
It’s the perfect time of year! The sun is out and your athletic bones are ready to get out on the course and smack some green. Make sure you stay hydrated with water at all times. Bonus point: eat at a new restaurant in whatever city you end up golfing in.
5.) Go for a drive
Did I just hear road trip?! Get some friends together and go on a scenic road trip, find cheap motels and have a blast. Some great places to sightsee are, the Abo Pass Trail scenic byway, Billy the Kid scenic byway and the Corralles Road scenic byway. You’ll wish you would never drive anywhere again.
We hope you enjoy your weekend trip and have safe travels. Even if it's for a day or a relaxing weekend, take the time to enjoy the spring season and your loved ones. Be sure to visit Carlsbad Open MRI on your road trip!
