About Southwest Compass

After moving to New Mexico in 2010, we began exploring the American Southwest. We’ve traveled over 24,200 miles of roads. That’s the equivalent of driving around the world once! Through our road trips, we uncover the natural beauty, unique culture, and highlights of the region.

If you’re planning your itinerary for the American Southwest, we have some suggestions. Okay, ‘some’ is an understatement. We collected many favorite memories of the region and are loathe to trim down our list.

We hope you’re inspired to head our way, and that these suggestions have helped you plan your next trip. If you have any favorite places to share, leave them in the comments.

Happy Travels!
