Nine Things to Do in Red River, New Mexico for Couples


The United States of America is a unique part of the world in that if you look across the vast expanse of our country, you'll find every type of climate, landscape, and soil you could imagine. If you're lucky, you can find singular locations that provide all of these in one place, and that place is Red River, New Mexico. Not only do you encounter the southern part of the fabled Rocky Mountains, you also encounter some amazingly dry, desert areas nearby.

Red River is a quaint mountain town that is often times looked over by such ski-vacation juggernauts as Taos & Angel Fire, NM to its south and, of course, places like Vail, Colorado to the north. Nonetheless, Red River offers up a smorgasbord of winter & summer activities for the entire family, but it also offers up some great times for couples looking to find a nice mountain getaway that isn't yet festooned with visitors trying to muck up the natural wonder of the area.


Here are nine very cool things couples can do in Red River that not only make it unique, but make it undeniably a hip haven for those in the know:

1. Candy Crate, LLP - Here you and your sweetheart can enjoy a nostalgic little candy shop that is loved by everyone. You can also try the famed Candy Mountain Fudge that has been a hallmark of this candy shop for nearly thirty years.

2. Texas Reds Steakhouse - Before heading to get some fudge, why not have a nice out to a staple of the Red River business landscape by stopping by Texas Reds? Enjoy a great meal with friendly service in a restaurant that has been in operation for half a century.

3. Red River MIner's Transit - Take a load off by taking the Miner's Transit system in town. It may not be thrillingly romantic, but it is a nice way to move around town while chatting about all of the great places you've been & where you still want to go.

4. Line Dancing - Line dancing (as well as a number of other activities) is available at the Red River Community House at different times a year. This year, it's available from early June through early August 2017.

5. Sand Dunes - Take a day-trip together a little north of Red River & check out The Great Sand Dunes National Monument. If you're both big fans of landscapes & natural wonders, this is a 'must' for your visit.

6. Art - If you're both bug fans of art, check out some of the more coveted artwork of the area by heading to the Red River Gallery of Fine Art.

If you & your significant other have decided to take a breather & just enjoy relaxing, these final three things to do are totally worth it:

7. Aroma Therapy at Essential O2 Bar

8. Therapeutic Massage, Facials, and Sugar Scrubs at Joy of Massage

9. Yoga at Carol Swagerty Yoga

Want An Exotic Holiday In Spain? Explore Ibiza's Es Cana

Es Cana/Es Canar is a small beach resort village located about 28 kilometres away from the Ibiza airport in Spain. This is a very popular tourist destination among Europeans and travelers from across the globe. So if you are looking for a relaxing and lively holiday, look no further.

How to reach there?

Es Canar is a part of the Balearic Islands archipelago and one can take a tourist bus or taxi from the Ibiza airport to reach here. It takes about 40 minutes to reach there from the airport. This popular resort of Es Cana is located on the east coast of Ibiza. There are several options of accommodation which include low budget hostels and apartments to high-end state-of- the-art hotels which are complete with gym, sauna baths, multi-cuisine restaurants, bars etc.

Things to do on the magnificent island

If you are looking to relax in the beginning of your vacation, after a hectic work life, then take the first few days easy. Stroll on the coastline to the north to Cala Nova and Cala Leña. These idyllic places are ideal to rest in the shade or to swim from the sandy beaches on a bright sunny day. Choose between the beaches of Cala Martina, S'Argamassa, Cala Pada and Niu Blau and sit on the lounge chairs with a martini or long island iced tea.

After you have taken enough rest for the first few days and have regained your energy, take a walk to the coast to Santa Eulalia and rest on hammocks in the shady areas. Take your swimming gear and have a wonderful experience jumping from the rocks into the water. Bask in the glorious Mediterranean sun on the sandy beaches and get a lovely tan. While going, walk to Santa Eulalia and get a taxi or the ferry-boat back to Es Cana.

Think about some water sports like parasailing, windsurfing and scuba diving. Keep one day aside for taking a fun boat ride and ferry trip around in the coastlines.

Once you have had enough of water and Sun and are ready for some sight seeing, taking a trip on the Tourist Train is the perfect option. This train leaves directly from the resort and leisurely takes you around till the final destination of the historical village of San Carlos. This will be an excellent three-hour scenic tour and you can pack a small picnic basket to enjoy in the trip. Explore the 17th century farmhouse and pick up a few souvenirs from there. Take a bite to eat with your favorite cocktail at the magnificent Cesar's beach bar, before winding your day and heading back to Es Caná. This trip undoubtedly is a fabulous way to explore and experience some of the special sites and uniqueness of Ibiza.

No trip is complete without some fun shopping. Explore the outskirts of the resort on a Wednesday and you can't take off your eyes from the merchandise sold in the Hippy Market of Punta Arabí. Every woman loves jewelry and you can find some great bargains brought from different parts of the world here. Inexpensive and beautifully crafted silver jewelry from India is very popular among the tourists. Some unique and colorful clothing, shoes and handmade leather goods at a very affordable price will be good gifts for your friends and family back home.
 

On a Saturday afternoon, take a stroll on the road to San Carlos. The Hippy market in Las Dalias boasts of some great hand-crafted products. During summers they also have a night market in Las Dalias and the color and vibe of this place will make you feel light in the head. Enjoy some interesting parties like Namasté with live music and DJs and groove with the latest hits with some lip smacking local cuisines and cocktails.

Es Cana has all the elements of a perfect holiday without burning a hole in your pocket. So this summer are you going to unwind on the pristine beaches and gain a few pounds gorging on the tapas, slow-roasted free-range rotisserie chicken, sushi, seafood or other Mediterranean cuisines?

Hiking in Abruzzo, Italy



This wild, untamed and hauntingly beautiful region is fairly close to Rome and yet is surprisingly infrequently explored by foreign tourists. Get off the tourist bandwagon and explore this exciting area on foot. This is the perfect part of Italy for a hiking holiday, whether you are looking to scale the Apennine Mountains, follow trails between idyllic, hill-top villages, or simply take a gentle stroll in a beautiful valley or through fragrant wild-flower meadows. 

The scenery, friendly locals and outstanding trails of this region will make for a memorable holiday. If you are thinking about visiting Rome but have been put off by the summer crowds, why not visit this region for some time as well, combining a hectic city visit with a more laid back countryside vacation?




 300*250

Whether you walk independently or take a guided tour, there is much to see and do here. This region does, after all, boast not one but three national parks! There is the Gran Sasso, which contains many of the Apennines' highest peaks, the Majella National Park, another dramatic mountain range, and the National Park of Abruzzo, which is an important place for the preservation of native flora and fauna, which includes bears, wolves, chamois and wild boar. 


Throughout Abruzzo, you will find a large number of exemplary mountain hikes and valley trails to suit most fitness levels, though this is a rugged region with more steep gradients and challenging walks than gentle rambles.

The dramatic peaks of Gran Sasso offer the greatest challenges to mountain walkers in the area. These are a bulky massif comprising two parallel mountain chains flanking the Campo Imperatore Plain that stretches for 27km at over 2000m above sea level. The National Park has a huge number of hiking trails that allow you to explore this dramatic region.

In the Abruzzo National Park, you can base yourself in the central village of Pescasseroli, which will allow you to strike out on one of the trails that radiate out from this hub. Get away from the tourist village and you will swiftly find yourself in the glorious scenery of the Apennines.


In the Maiella Mountain Range, there are about 500km of walking trails to be enjoyed. Here, you can also see the cave paintings in the Grotta Sant'Angelo and you can explore one of the deepest natural caverns in Europe that is open to the public, the Grotta del Cavallone. You can also ascend to the highest peak of the massif, Monte Amaro, which is 2793 m high.



There are many dramatic landscapes to be experienced in the varied and wild region of Abruzzo. Be sure to bring a camera to capture the sublime and breathtaking views you will get from high in the mountains and of course always be sure to arm yourself with the right gear and a good map - as is usual in Italy, signposting can be patchy and it can be easy to miss an indication. That said, even if you do get lost once in a while, you are sure not to mind when you are surrounded by such natural beauty.
