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.
When in Santa Fe, make a side trip to see Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in Cochiti Pueblo, approximately Cochiti Pueblo away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Loretto Chapel, examine the collection at Museum of International Folk Art, look for gifts at The Shop - A Christmas Store, and admire the masterpieces at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.

To find photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Santa Fe trip itinerary planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Santa Fe. In June, daily temperatures in Santa Fe can reach 89°F, while at night they dip to 56°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can go by car to Los Alamos.

Los Alamos is a town in Los Alamos County, New Mexico, United States that is recognized as the birthplace of the first atomic bomb––the primary objective of the Manhattan Project by Los Alamos National Laboratory during World War II. You've now added Bandelier National Monument to your itinerary. On the 28th (Fri), take in the exciting artwork at Fuller Lodge Art Center, pause for some photo ops at Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and General Leslie Statues, and then take in breathtaking views at Bandelier National Monument. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for all kinds of wild species at Valles Caldera National Preserve and then engage your brain at Bradbury Science Museum.

To see maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Los Alamos trip itinerary planner.
