Santa Fe at the end of May?

Jump to last reply

Hello all. I have looked through the posts, and I am trying to put together a first-time trip to New Mexico for the week of Memorial Day. I am trying to see if I can manage the expenses, and the walking - though young, I am hampered by arthritis in my knees. I am looking for itinerary suggestions and weather. There are wonderful posts here on where to eat. I need a modest hotel/motel. Not sure if I may rent a car for 1-2 days. Also concerned that it won't be too hot or too windy, as I read end of May could be in the 90's, the motel I talked to in Santa Fe said they had snow last May. I think I have found good airfare. Here's what I have so far:
Fly in to Albequerque sometime between May 24 -25, stay 2 days there, then catch the train or shuttle to Santa Fe, and stay there for 7 days, with day trips.

One motel I am looking at is on Cerrillos Road across from the Railway Park. They say it is a 15 minute walk to the Plaza, and safe to do to or from at night. Other than asking for a quiet room at the back, any other thoughts on locale?nnn

I am hoping to be able to do slow-paced walks to and around museums, and maybe a few trails, as long as I can sit every 20 - 30 minutes ( I know, it's sad). Most of my shopping would be window shopping, but I love people-watching, and will want to be able to sit out at cafes for meals or drinks.

Can anyone who has visited recently or lives in the area give me a bit of direction/feedback? I already have the time off reserved at work, so hoping to book this week. ( I also reserved time in April).

Thanks!
