Santa Fe area itinerary help

Jump to last reply

We have basically three days to spend in Santa Fe with another couple. We have been there several times but this will be the first time for our friends. I would appreciate any feedback on our plans; are we cramming in too much, etc.
We will pick them up at ABQ at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 11 and head to Santa Fe on the Turquoise Trail. We don't plan to stop in Madrid because we want to spend as much time in SF as possible.We plan to have lunch at Casa Sena, we have always enjoyed going there & everyone we have taken there loved it. After lunch we plan to spend the rest of the afternoon on the plaza, St. Francis Basilica, The Loretto Chapel, the plaza itself, shops. The guys may go to the History Museum while the girls shop. We will check into our hotel at 4:00, freshen up and go back to the plaza for the evening. We love the Coyote Cantina for drinks and appetizers, then the Bell Tower Bar for drinks and sunset, then possibly one other place before calling it a night. Suggestions?
Sunday: We are considering Bandelier for the morning. I heard that there were wildfires in that area last year. Does anyone know if that has affected the scenery or anything else at Bandelier? We would most likely do the shortest loop, then return to SF, get cleaned up and go to the Hacienda Parade of Homes all afternoon. All of us enjoy seeing homes, decor, etc. My husband and I built a retirement home in Las Cruces so we love getting ideas.
For the evening we plan to have dinner at either Zias, Railyard Saloon, or La Choza followed by the piano bar at Vanessies.
Monday: We will leave around 7:00 a.m. and take the Low Road to Taos, see the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, then take the High Road back down. We figured it would be better to do it in that order because we plan to end up in Albuquerque by the late afternoon that day. If we left at 7:00 for the High Road first, some of the places along the way would most likely not be open when we were passing by. Would you agree with that assumption?
We would head to Albuquerque whenever we finished the HIgh Road and check into a hotel, grab a bite and then do the Sandia tram that evening for the sunset.
We discussed trying to go to Tent Rocks but it seems to be too much with this plan. We also wish we had more time to spend in the Railyard area, Guadalupe Street but since we are only allowing ourselves this amount of time, we tried to choose a sampling of the area based on giving our friends lots of choices of what is available and then planning around that. We are driving to our home in Las Cruces on Tuesday morning to spend the rest of the week there since spending time with us in our new home is the main purpose of the visit. We want to give them a taste of other areas of NM besides the southern part since it is their first time.
Thanks for any suggestions.
