Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas make up this region, historically known as the southwest, or western U.S. South.
Geographically, the region runs from the great plains of Oklahoma through the hills of east Texas and down through huge swaths of rangeland to the more humid Gulf Coast. Farther west, New Mexico and Arizona boast warm, dry climates with deserts of cactus and a perfect growing climate for chiles, thus the great spicy Hispanic palate of both states.
You will find ranches offering cattle drives, farms offering horseback riding, hands-on experiences as you help with chores. For those interested in nature, a number of locations offer nature walks. Common adjectives to describe the properties in this region are: spacious, quiet, tranquil, secluded, relaxed, natural beauty, warm and welcoming.
