SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new state initiative aims to connect tourists with centuries of New Mexico architectural history.

The New Mexico Economic Development recently announced a partnership between New Mexico MainStreet and the New Mexico Tourism Department to encourage visitors to take in architectural treasures around the state.

A new website will allow residents and visitors to search for historic and cultural attractions and businesses in New Mexico’s MainStreet and Arts & Cultural Districts. The site also offers visitors easy navigation of local businesses including hotels, restaurants and boutiques.

Officials say the trails highlight New Mexico architecture from several eras, including: Adobe, Victorian, Classical and Modern styles.

Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela says the Architecture Trails will help tourism and economic opportunities for local businesses.
