Unique Sights/ Names New Mexico

New Mexico has some unique sights and names of small towns! If your an avid fan of roadside attractions, these are some that you can PIN to your bucket list. More links are here on my Pinterest Page

1.) WORLD'S LARGEST PISTACHIO:
This quick stopover is along US 54. It has this large famous single pistachio just outside the store. You cannot miss it as it towers above the highway. Pick up some delicious pistachios for the way when your there and your good to go. This destination is close to the White Sands National Monument.

Address:
McGinn's Pistachio Tree Ranch; Arena Blanca Winery 
7320 U.S. Highway 54/70, Alamogordo, NM 88310

2.) GIANT RATTLESNAKE MADE OF ROCKS:

This has been one of the most pinned pics on my Pinterest Board. It looked unique and since we were driving all the way to NM, and it was just a few minutes drive off the highway where we were put up it made sense to actually see this piece of art. 

ADDRESS

Intersection of Rio Bravo Blvd SE and University Blvd. 

Take Exit 220 from I-25 to Rio Bravo. Turn East on Rio Bravo and go to University Blvd, only about 0.2 mi. The snake is to the right on University Blvd, just beyond the intersection. There is every possibility that you may miss seeing it as it comes just around the bend. It happened to us and we ended up making a couple of round about turns. But it was worth it.

Close to Albuquerque downtown, this Large Red Arrow sticking to the ground. It is one of the many unique picture points found in New Mexico. 

The address: 2101 Carlisle Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110. Located at the intersection of Indian School and Carlisle. Park within the Wholefoods parking lot or across the street to get a full picture.
