  1. Default San Diego to New Mexico?

    We are taking our 1st road trip with 3 & 5 yr olds. Oh Joy!!
    I 'm not sure where in NM to go. Carlsbad Caverns, Sante Fe or maybe up north more. We will be staying in a hotel or two along the way to break it up.

    I would love to stop at a couple roadside diners or a really good burger place.
    My kids love swimming, and easy hikes. We may stop at Hoover Dam too.
    I need some ideas.

    I still have some research to do because I don't know much about NM. We are considering moving out of Ca in a few years and wanted to get a feel for NM. That's another story. We may also move to Missouri. I know big difference. It all depends on if we like the desert or more on the green side.

    Default Both ?

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A. forums !

    I need some ideas.
    How much time will you have in NM.

    I 'm not sure where in NM to go. Carlsbad Caverns, Sante Fe or maybe up north more.
    Have you time to explore NM and move around ? It's only around 300 miles from Carlsbad caverns to Santa Fe. On the way from SD you could visit White sands NP and Carlsbad along I-10 to Las Cruces and then head up to Santa Fe and further North is Taos and Taos Pueblo.
    To see Hoover dam you could return on I-40 past Acoma [sky city] into Arizona. Petrified forest is on route and a small diversion to the South rim of the Grand canyon would be possible.
    You can find plenty of info throughout the forums, just use the search button, but here are a couple of great threads to help you look here
    and here. Any more questions just ask !
