Farmington, New Mexico…Where active families and outdoor enthusiasts thrive

It’s not often that you stumble upon a destination that marries the charm of a small town and the amenities of a big city with wild outdoor beauty and culture. Farmington, New Mexico accomplishes just that. As the gateway to the Four Corners, adventures are boundless in the beautiful rugged setting of Northern New Mexico. Native American culture thrives here with historic sites and National Parks like Chaco Culture National Historic Park and Aztec Ruins National Monument both located nearby.

If outdoor exploration is more your speed, a hike through the Bisti Badlands will quell your adventurous side. Covering roughly 60 square miles south of Farmington the Badlands are home to a variety of otherworldly rock formations. With hoodoos that have been formed over hundreds of years by the winds and rains, you’ll truly feel like you’ve set foot on another planet.

In town you’ll find plenty of interesting shopping options from trading posts featuring locally curated Southwestern jewelry and art galleries lining the streets of the quaint downtown. Stop by for a beer from one of the local breweries or a wine tasting of New Mexico wines.

And of course don’t forget to venture out to the Four Corners Monument to take a selfie while standing in four states at once!
