Getting out of the office is good for you and it’s proven to increase productivity, so your boss should like it too. Plan some PTO or leverage your 3-day weekend for one of these summer vacation ideas.
Lying out by the lake or enjoying pool time is a great way to spend time with family and soak in the sun, assuming you’re slathered in the appropriate SPF of course! Check out some of these local favorites:
We might live in a desert, but that doesn’t mean that New Mexico doesn’t have beautiful lakes where you can watch the waves crash. Try Abiquiu Lake recreation area! This 4,000-acre lake on the Chama River has scenic red sandstone views and great wakeboarding and water skiing.
If you’d rather chill out by the pool, try the Genoveva Chavez Community Center. With a 50-meter pool, therapy pool and leisure pool, there’s something for everyone. And there’s a gigantic slide too!
Take a healthy snack on your travels with these recipes!
Get your cardio in and take a hike. Go for the day or turn it into a budget-friendly camping trip to enjoy your long weekend.
La Luz Trail is a difficult 8-mile hike one-way but you can take the Sandia Peak Tramway back. This popular trail is for the fit and offers the experience of multiple climatic zones and an unforgettable view. If you go, bring plenty of water and some trail mix!
Can’t get out of town? Host a get-together with friends and family. Drinks over your backyard fire pit, hot dogs on the grill or friendly chats while the children play are all great ways to reconnect with what’s important – your friends and family.
Don’t wait too much longer. Plan your summer vacation today!
