Santa Fe

Santa Fe continuously ranks among the world's top holiday destinations, attracting visitors with its unusual combination of scenic beauty, rich history, cultural diversity, and high concentration of performing arts venues, fine restaurants, and interesting attractions.
Get some cultural insight at Loretto Chapel and Bandelier National Monument. Take a break from Santa Fe with a short trip to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in Cochiti Pueblo, about 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Canyon Road, admire the masterpieces at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, explore and take pictures at The Plaza, and see the interesting displays at New Mexico History Museum.

Taos

Taos ©
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
On the 11th (Mon), snap pictures at Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, then see the interesting displays at Millicent Rogers Museum, then explore the ancient world of Taos Pueblo, and finally don't miss a visit to Taos Plaza.

Plan my trip to Taos with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Drive from Santa Fe to Taos in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Santa Fe in June, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be a bit cooler in Taos, with lows of 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to drive to Albuquerque.

Albuquerque

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
Start off your visit on the 12th (Tue): get a new perspective on nature at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and then take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, read Albuquerque day trip app .

You can drive from Taos to Albuquerque in 2.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of bus and train. In June, Albuquerque is a bit warmer than Taos - with highs of 39°C and lows of 21°C. On the 13th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
