What U.S. state bears the slogan “The Land of Enchantment?”

New Mexico

Prior to 1932, New Mexico’s nickname was “the Sunshine State.” After this slogan was taken by Florida, the state decided to change its official motto to “The Land of Enchantment,” with the first license plates featuring the new slogan appearing in 1941. In 1989, the state designated the song “Land of Enchantment – New Mexico,” written by Martin Murphy, Chick Raines and Don Cook, as the official ballad of New Mexico.
