8 Best and Fun Things To Do In Belen New Mexico

A picturesque town located in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, around 250 miles from the Mexico border, Belen (pronounced “Beh-lenn”) has a variety of things to offer visitors.

For starters, it’s home to the majestic Harvey House Museum, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The town is also a short distance away from the Whitfield Wildlife Conservation Area, which is a great spot for outdoor enthusiasts, tourists, and students to learn about wetlands ecology in an area that largely consists of desert.

Occupying a stately brick building in downtown Belen is Jaramillo Vineyards Wine Tasting Room, where visitors can taste a selection of locally-produced wines.

Across the street is Through the Flowers Art Space, an educational non-profit that showcases the work of internationally-renowned artist Judy Chicago and her husband, photographer Donald Woodman.

Of course, this is just a small sample of what Belen has to offer. If you would like to find out more, continue reading for a comprehensive list of all the other attractions and activities to be found here
