Whether you’re an aspiring artist, or love getting lost in a gallery, there’s no need to go across the pond to experience spectacular museums, grand architecture, and awe-inspiring exhibits. There is no denying the mental, and visual benefits of being surrounded by art, and having the tangible experience of seeing it face to face. From the grandeur of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to the iconic Smithsonian in D.C, some of the best destinations to channel your inner impressionist don’t require a passport.

This city is steeped in rich history and renown landmarks where a glimpse into the past is truly a work of art.

The Enchanting Spirit of New Mexico

There is more to New Mexico than arid desert terrain, and Tex-Mex cuisine especially for boomers, and retirees who may find the Land of Enchantment the ideal destination to spend their golden years. New Mexico doesn’t get as much press as it should for its picture perfect scenery, affordable cost of living, and a climate that’s made for snowbirds. The diverse landscape is a year round adventure for outdoor enthusiasts offering everything from rock climbing, and biking, to challenging cross country skiing. Steeped in Native American culture, and boasting iconic landmarks, it certainly doesn’t miss the mark for livability.

New Mexico is part of the four corner region of the U.S along with Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. Native American culture runs deep with twenty two tribes that to this day inhabit pueblos that have been in existence for centuries. What attracts active adults more than culture, and history alone, is the weather. New Mexico has a reputation for an abundance of warm sunshine, low humidity, and annual rainfall lower than the rest of the country. Tranquil, desert regions are what most people associate with New Mexico, but this Southwest gem also features dense tree studded mountains, towering mesas, and is home to the Rio Grande, one the longest rivers in the U.S.
