WHERE TO EAT, STAY, PLAY, AND MORE IN NEW MEXICO
Runaway with us to the Land of Enchantment and home of the Turquoise Trail. If New Mexico isn’t on your travel hit list yet, its time to start planning a road trip. Buckle up babes, here’s the JA Guide to New Mexico.
We’re all about the finer things in life, and Rancho Alegre brings the finest. If you’re traveling with your tribe, this 11-bedroom property is the ultimate home base. Arched brick ceilings, kiva fireplaces and walls hung with tribal hides are just a few of the magical elements you’ll find here. Grab your babes and head to the rooftop deck for a twilight toast overlooking 175 acres of Southwestern ranchland. After the celebrations, chase the sun down to the infinity pool and soak in the gratitude. Bikinis optional, drinks essential.
Flower child, you will love the bad-ass ‘Go Green or Go Home’ state of mind found at Los Poblanos Historic Inn. Check-in to your ultimate floral fantasy— an open-air earthy ranch surrounded by lavender fields. Everything on the property is pesticide-free and organic, so you can take in your pleasure sans guilt. After you’ve unpacked, hit up The Restaurant at Los Poblanos for field-to-fork cuisine that’s sustainably produced. Cue mantra for positive intention.

After settling into your temporary abode, wander over to The Love Apple in Taos for a dining experience that will have you radiating romance for days. Tucked within high adobe walls and glowing with candle light, this once-ancient chapel was reincarnated as culinary magic. Order yourself a glass of wine (or two), kickback on the patio and let the good vibes roll.
Ready for Happy Hour?
Margarita mamas, this ones for you. We know vintage shopping is a workout, so head over to The Shed and quench your thirst. Order a round for the table, and be sure to score a side of chips and salsa.
White Sands National Monument pairs zen-like simplicity with major Khaleesi vibes, and we’re into it. This snow-like oasis is best caught in the early morning, so rise and shine lovers! The gypsum sand reflects those cotton candy hues of the rising sun and the view is well worth the extra shot of espresso. Wanna make this adventure next-level? Pick up a sled from a nearby rental shop and head to the steepest slope you can find. Ride baby ride.
For the traveling creative, popping by Georgia O’Keefe’s Studio is a must. Day-trip over to Ghost Ranch and explore the summer-home of an art icon. With your creative energy rising, road trip down to Santa Fe Plaza for prime vintage shopping and a turquoise and crystal supply beyond your wildest dreams.
The turquoise trail we're obsessed with is the one that leads to jacquieaiche.com. Bring along your margarita and select the perfect pieces to pair with the badass Southwestern style of New Mexico. Enjoy your travels lovers!
