New Mexico pays host to many of what I like to call "hole in the wall" towns, amongst them the scenic village known as Madrid. Paraphrased form it's official traveler's website, Madrid is known as unique creative community nestled with fun shops, restaurants and galleries. It was my second time visiting the intriguing little town and it was one of my favorite stops during the trip. Eating a delectable home-style brunch at No Pity Cafe followed by vintage shopping in the colorful town square was the ideal afternoon. It was also incredible to see Madrid's untouched history, as it was once primarily a mining town turned artistic birthplace. Culture, history and stories are thriving in New Mexico, there is seemingly always a story waiting to be told.
