Head south to a wildlife refuge and hot springs (Allow two days).
South of Albuquerque, tour Socorro's architecture, including the San Miguel Mission, Garcia Opera House, and the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Depot.
San Antonio which is south of Socorro, may be small but is has a huge reputation for green-chile cheeseburgers. The Owl Bar and the Buckhorn Tavern, literally across the street from each other continually duel for the right to claim that theirs is the best version of the state's signature dish.
The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is a gorgeous setting year-round. From November to March it is filled with migrating birds, including thousands of sandhill cranes. It's home to the annual Festival of the Cranes and the bird watching opportunities are endless.
Truth or Consequences is a resort town and artist gathering place, which is famous for its hot springs, which are accessible by the many inns in town. Nearby Elephant Butte State Park offers fishing, boating, rafting, and kayaking at the state's largest lake.
