New Mexico Trip: Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

Flying into Albuquerque in December for a family trip (Mom, Dad + 20 year old son) and I need some advice. We're planning on skipping Albuquerque all together, spend 3 days in Santa Fe, and 4 days in Taos.

Having some hesitation on 2 things:
1) is skipping Albuquerque all together the right thing to do?
and
2) is 4 days in Taos too much time?

We're not super active people but enjoy an easy hike and seeing the beautiful scenery (we're from FL). Son wants to ski and snowmobile and the wife and I would like to snowshoe and cross country ski a little bit.

Do y'all think there's anything we should do differently or see that I might not be aware of?
