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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Ghost Ranch and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at San Miguel Chapel and Palace of the Governors. Venture out of the city with trips to El Santuario de Chimayo (in Chimayo), San Francisco de Assisi Mission Church (in Ranchos De Taos) and Taos (Millicent Rogers Museum & La Hacienda del los Martinez). Next up on the itinerary: learn about winemaking at Estrella Del Norte Vineyard & Tasting Room, view the masterpieces at Dinosaurs and More, appreciate the extensive heritage of Canyon Road, and explore the world behind art at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.

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.
Head to Tinkertown Museum and Skip Maisel'sfor some retail therapy. San Felipe de Neri Church and Albuquerque Old Town will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Albuquerque: Sky City Cultural Center & Haak'u Museum (in Pueblo of Acoma) and Bandelier National Monument (in Los Alamos). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
