Speaking about hidden wonder that make your jaw drops, New Mexico has one called Carlsbad Caverns National Park. This park consists of more than 119 known caves – all formed when sulfuric acid dissolved the surrounding limestone, leaving behind caverns of all sizes. There are two ways to enter this hidden wonder, by walking the Natural Entrance (steep, 1.25 miles) or taking the elevator down into the Big Room.

One like nature, one like art, one like the museum, one like food, and one like history. And both cities and surrounding area have plenty of them.
