TRAVELOGUE: Farmington NM – An Overnight Destination, Part Three
One of my favorite places to meander during my two full days in Farmington was the Riverside Nature Center, which is also connected to the Animas River Trail behind my hotel. The River Trail is eight miles, and is frequented by runners, dog walkers, tourists, and people just out to enjoy outdoors… a well-used and appreciated asset to the city.
The River Trail through the Nature Center is especially scenic, and educational as well.
There are many gardens and an abundance of wildlife that are more than likely ‘spoiled’ by the sanctuary the Nature Center offers.
If you’d rather golf your way through nature, Farmington’s Pinon Hills Golf Course is a scenic and challenging course and ranked among the best – and best bargain – municipal golf courses in the country.
It’s been a full two days of exploring Farmington. It’s time to treat yourself to a relaxing and decadent dinner at St. Clair Winery and Bistro. Coming from six generations of French wine makers, the Lescombes family brought impeccable winemaking to New Mexico, and has a solid history of producing some of New Mexico’s most sought-after wines.
The bistro menu and presentation matches the excellence of the winery.
Be enticed. Make Farmington your next overnight destination.
