New Mexico tops in tourism. Rich Hancock has details…

Governor Susana Martinez announced 34.4 million trips were taken in New Mexico in 2016 – shattering the previous record. New Mexico is a leader in tourism, with trips to the state growing at double the national average. Martinez says “A record number of people are visiting New Mexico, and that means more money being spent in our communities…” 2016 was the largest single-year increase in visitation since the introduction of New Mexico True as the state’s tourism marketing brand.
