Private jet charter from Wisconsin to New Mexico
From spas to Spanish colonial architecture and rose-colored deserts to snow-capped peaks, New Mexico promises a feast of equal parts culture and nature. Once the home of Apache leader Geronimo and legendary outlaw Billy the Kid, this vast state also produced Pulitzer-winning author Cormac McCarthy and celebrated artist Georgia O’Keeffe. New Mexico isn’t all oil drilling and cattle ranching; it’s also the home of folk art, flamenco dancing and a famous stretch of Route 66. Read on to discover which are the best airports to fly from/to and how long the journey takes on different types of jet.

Top events in New Mexico
The beer and burritos are two excellent reasons to visit New Mexico. The state’s famous green chile cheeseburger can be devoured at Santa Fe Bite, served on an enormous ciabatta-style bun and covered with green chiles and white cheese. The best steak is served at El Matador at The Bull Ring, also in capital Santa Fe and not to be confused with The Matador, New Mexico’s favorite dive bar. Unsurprisingly, New Mexico is also a great place to tuck into Mexican food; head to El Modelo in the state’s biggest city, Albuquerque, for tortillas, tamales, enchiladas, burritos, tostados and sopapilles. Albuquerqu is also one of the country’s top beer-cation destinations, so don’t miss the chance to sample a brew at Le Cumbre Brewery.
New Mexico holds strong to its Spanish heritage. Every June, the Festival Flamenco Albuquerque attracts the world’s best flamenco dancers for an eight-day celebration of this ancient artistic expression of Spanish-Romani culture. The city also hosts the International Balloon Festival in October; the world’s largest balloon festival with over 500 hot air balloons filling the sky. It’s the main event on the city’s cultural calendar, attracting around one million spectators, and a major showcase of New Mexico culture and history.
The Santa Fe Opera, located seven miles north of Santa Fe, is famous both for introducing new operas and for its productions of the standard operatic repertoire. Held in open-air facilities in a woodsy hilltop setting, the summer season runs from late June to mid-August and might include classics like Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte, French composer George Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers and Puccini’s famous La Bohème.
