Imagine finding yourself in a New Mexican town on the Colorado Plateau. The high desert landscape stretches as far as the eyes can see. Your restless spirit embraces the seemingly endless possibilities for adventure in this vast, new location. All you have to do is take that first step into the unknown and your journey will begin.
Lace up your best pair of hiking boots and leave your cares back in your room at one of our hotels in Farmington, NM—you’re going to a breathtaking monadnock called Angel’s Peak, which rises out of the desert floor and stretches to the clouds. Get there before the sun breaches the horizon and set up your camera for pictures of a spectacular sunset. Forrest Gump once said of sunrises in the desert, “I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began.” See if you can.
Your wanderings in those hiking boots aren’t over yet. They’re going to help you travel back in time over 900 years when you meander down the trail at Aztec Ruins National Monument. You can almost feel the presence of ancient souls roaming around with you, arm in arm. Sit down with one of the rangers and learn everything about this precious piece of land in the American Southwest. And after a long day of trekking, there’s no better place to rest than at Farmington hotels.
When you’re ready to see more of this magnificent state, hop in one of our Farmington rental cars and drive 183 miles south. Take notice of the desolate yet hauntingly beautiful scenery of northwestern New Mexico. Eventually, the towering monoliths are left in your rearview mirror as the Albuquerque skyline comes across your windshield. Our Albuquerque hotels are waiting for you when you arrive.
You’ve checked off plenty of “things to do” during this getaway of yours, but with the money you saved because of Travelocity’s offers on cheap hotels in Farmington, NM, there’s plenty more for you to accomplish. We can’t wait to hear about it.
