New Mexico welcomes you with colour and art, music and dance, breathtaking landscapes, and a heritage of Indian, Anglo, and Hispanic cultures that cannot be found in any other state in the union. Every corner of New Mexico possesses romantic qualities, from its centuries old culture to the beautiful and diverse landscapes. The actions of any New Mexicans, both historical and contemporary, have reached legendary stature. The most identifiable is Billy the Kid, whose antics around the 1880’s not only added fuel to the WILD WEST legend, but also catapulted him into the role of New Mexico’s most famous outlaw. The people, their heritage and traditions, their skills and their arts, and the land, its awesome beauty, all make New Mexico the unique and colourful place that it is today.
