Trip Report Summer Family Vacation

Jump to last reply

My family took a summer vacation late July/early August. Sorry this is late but I've been real busy.

We drove from Austin, TX and our itinerary was:
Carlsbad, NM/Carlsbad Caverns
Roswell, NM
Santa Fe, NM
Boulder, CO
Jackson Hole, WY/Grand Tetons
Gardiner, MT/Yellowstone National Park
Casper, WY
Granby, CO (wedding)
Wichita, KS

This portion covers the New Mexico portion

I've described Carlsbad Caverns in previous trips and this one was no different. Read my previous report from a few years back on that. Only difference this time was we stayed at the Fairfield Inn, it is brand new and very nice. We spent a full day at the Caverns.

Next day we drove to Roswell, NM and checked out the Alien Museum there. I highly recommend the museum. Lots of conspiracy theory, a flying saucer for the kids, documentaries, an interesting place overall.

Next up was Santa Fe. Spent a couple of days there. Stayed at a Residence Inn and was upgraded to Penthouse Suite, that was very nice! We drove into the town square, parked, and walked around. I enjoyed seeing all the people milling about, looking at the town square with all the vendors, and touring the cathedral there. We ate at a pizza place for lunch, it's the only one advertised from the square but I can't remember the name.

That night we went to a superb Mexican restaurant, New Maria's Mexican Restaurant. It's in an historic building and serves authentic spicy Mexican fare. It was one of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at.
