The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

New Mexico

Just about anywhere you want to go on your wish list in the Land of Enchantment is within driving distance, which makes for a more cost-efficient trip. Lewis cites cooking classes in Santa Fe, learning to paint like Georgia O'Keeffe and communing with beings from outer space in Roswell. Albuquerque generally is less expensive than Santa Fe (families can find motel rooms for less than $100 a night). And fans of "Breaking Bad" may want to take a DIY tour of the TV show's shooting locations in Albuquerque.
