It’s a @TravelNewMexico Birthday Road Trip!
Love New Mexico? Love a road trip? @TravelNewMexico loves both! @TravelNewMexico is a signature Instagram account that has rocketed to prominence by inviting guest Instagrammers to do a “takeover” of the account and share their love for unique New Mexico on-the-road adventures through imagery and stories.
Inspired by a road trip, this wildly popular IG project garnered over 17,000 followers in just over a year by engaging with a creative, motivated and supportive community. With so many amazing places to visit in New Mexico, it quickly became apparent that no one person or organization could possibly do justice to the beauty and diversity of the Land of Enchantment. Amy and Caitlin, owners of Simply Social Media and co-creators/curators of @TravelNewMexico, simply decided to share the wealth!
To celebrate this occasion, Amy and Caitlin will embark on an exciting seven-day journey, covering 1000 miles from May 9-15, 2016, that will lead them on an adventure throughout southwestern New Mexico. Starting in Santa Fe, they’ll be traveling to Albuquerque, Socorro, Silver City, Las Cruces, and White Sands, before returning with iPhones full of memorable imagery. The itinerary includes camping, hiking, and exploring some of New Mexico’s most fascinating landscapes including: The Very Large Array, the Gila Cliff Dwellings, City of Rocks State Park, the Organ Mountains, and White Sands National Monument. Along the way, @TravelNewMexico and other local Instagram feature accounts will host a series of fun InstaMeets to meet-and-greet IRL (in real life) the local IG communities with whom they have bonded over the past year. (An InstaMeet is a gathering of people who come together to create, connect, and share an experience through Instagram photography.)
This road-trip extravaganza honors @TravelNewMexico’s milestone first birthday and offers Instagrammers, both locals and NM-loving visitors, an ideal opportunity to join in the celebration and connect with New Mexico’s vibrant social media community!
This road trip will be sponsored by Squeaky Clean Car Wash. On May 9th, from 8:30-9:30am, Squeaky Clean Car Wash will host a Bon Voyage Party, at their 3931 Cerrillos Road location in Santa Fe, to send @TravelNewMexico off on this inspirational spring adventure. All who attend the event will receive a free exterior car wash, as well as coffee and doughnuts provided by Squeaky Clean Car Wash.
