6 days in Santa Fe and surrounding area

Jump to last reply

In early August my wife and I are escaping for 6 days of adult time in Santa Fe and the surrounding area while both our children are in summer camp. We are looking for a combination of kid-free activities (good food and drink, culture, sights, spas) combined with some active exploration (drives, hikes, rafting, bikes, horseback, etc).

Right now we fly into and out of Santa Fe, arriving on a Wednesday in early August and have reservations for 6 nights at the Hotel Santa Fe (Hacienda King), but will probably end up spending a few nights someplace else in the area depending on our travels. We have tickets for the Opera on Saturday night in the middle of our stay. Willing to spend reasonable amounts for good value or unique / worthwhile places, experiences but also interested in places off the normal tourist route that were your highlights.

What are your top recommendations for both our time in Santa Fe (thoughts on our hotel, favorite restaurants, sights in town) as well as your must see drives, sights or other activity options around the area?

We are coming from the DC area but have both lived and spend time out west and like the southwestern landscape, history and culture.

Also is Mesa Verde worth the drive or are there other ruins closer by that give the same flavor?
