City Different

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.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sun): steep yourself in history at Santa Fe Plaza, admire the masterpieces at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, then take in the exciting artwork at Mama's Minerals, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Loretto Chapel, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the fascinating history of Canyon Road, then explore the striking landscape at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, and then hike along Canyon Trail.

Taos

— 16 nights
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Taos: Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa (in Ojo Caliente), Angel Fire (Angel Fire Bike Park, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, &more) and Palisades Sill Official Scenic Historic Marker (in Eagle Nest). Spend the 10th (Tue) exploring nature at Fort Union National Monument. There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, explore the world behind art at Millicent Rogers Museum, take a memorable drive along The Low Road From Taos and Santa Fe, and don't miss a visit to David Anthony Fine Art.
