Performance Arts

P

The small city of Santa Fe is large in its cultural offerings.  To complement the great visual art scene, there are many performance arts groups that fill the year with everything from grand opera at a beautiful outdoor venue to small musical events at many local restaurants.  There are offerings by talented dance, theater, instrumental and choral groups.    The downtown Lensic Performing Arts within a short walk of the inn is home to many of these groups and also provides a rich schedule of local talent, guest artists and touring entertainment.

Art Galleries

A

Santa Fe has been called the biggest little art city in the world. Along with the adobe architecture and the clear blue skies with its intense light, art has defined Santa Fe for many decades. This area has attracted noted painters, photographers and sculptors since the late 1800’s.

Today, there are over two hundred galleries filled with art of every genre. In addition to the expected Native American pottery, jewelry, kachinas and weavings, Southwestern landscapes, vintage Western photographs, Spanish colonial religious art, one can find a significant selection of contemporary art, international fine crafts, glass and ceramic art, sculpture in various media and fine works of foreign artists.

You will find art galleries throughout the historic center of Santa Fe in the Plaza area, Railyard district, Baca street, and of course, Canyon Road. Even if you are not necessarily looking for something to fill that blank wall, a stroll up Canyon Road is a pleasant experience just to view the centuries-old architecture, outdoor sculptures and magnificent gardens.

Spas and Fitness

S

One of the more recent Santa Fe experiences that visitors and locals alike seek out is the opportunity to enjoy one of our many spas.  We have spas rich with atmosphere and exotic treatments including the Japanese-style Ten Thousand Waves, Indonesian Absolute Nirvana, and Asian and Native American influenced spas at several local hotels.  For a more basic but no less relaxing massage, try Body or the Downtown Day Spa.

If you desire a more active experience, we have numerous fitness opportunities available.   Yoga is very popular in Santa Fe and we have several studios to select from depending on the variety and skill level you are seeking.  Studios include Body of Santa Fe, Yoga Source, Yoga Moves, Yoga Santa Fe, and the Santa Fe Community Yoga Center.

Locations where you can get an energetic work out on a walk-in basis include Studio Nia, Salsa Suave (salsa classes), Moving People Dance Theatre (modern dance and more),  and two municipal fitness facilities – Fort Marcy Complex and the Genoveva Chavez Community Center (multiple fitness classes from spinning to step aerobics).  We have prepared a detailed listing of spas and fitness facilities with locations and contact information.


Museums and Historical Sites

M

As the nation’s second oldest city (after St. Augustine, FL), Santa Fe has a lot to offer when it comes to museums and historical sites. While its history is visible in its buildings, streets, festivals, cuisine and art, there’s no better place to explore the Native American, Spanish and Western heritage of the city that in its museums.

A good place to start is the historic Plaza, home to the Palace of the Governors and the New Mexico History museum. Here you will find modern exhibits covering the State’s history from the time of the Spanish explorers to today as well as the painted Segesser hides believed to originate in Santa Fe in the early 1700’s and are the first know depictions of Spanish colonial life in the United States.

If its art that you are interested in, the New Mexico Museum of Art next door to the history museum is where you should start. Among their 20,000-piece collection are works from the Taos and Santa Fe Art Communities, Gustave Baumann, Fremont Ellis, John Sloan, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams and the extensive New Deal Art Collection.

Just a bit to the west of the New Mexico Art Museum is the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. The museum opened in 1997 and has a collection of over 3,000 of her works, the single largest collection of her art. Visitors are treated to viewing a changing selection of her works along with special exhibits that frequently show her works next to those of her American modernist contemporaries or currently living artists of note.

The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts rounds out the museums located in the historic Plaza area. This museum is the country’s only place for exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the most progressive work of contemporary Native North American artists.

The Plaza area and surrounding streets are home to many significant historical landmarks including the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis de Assisi, the Loretto Chapel, the historic Fred Harvey La Fonda Hotel, San Miguel Mission Church, and the Santuario de Guadalupe. Directly south of the Plaza near each of our inns is the 1966 built New Mexico State Capital that houses a noteworthy art collection and the Governor’s Gallery, both available at no cost for viewing.

Four additional museums located a short distance from the Plaza on Museum Hill are described on our Four Kachinas web site. Furthermore, we detail additional historic sites near to Santa Fe.

Hiking

H

Spring, summer, fall and even winter provides perfect days to hike the outdoors in Santa Fe.  The weather is usually comfortably warm during the day and cools down
nicely in the evenings.  The dramatic colors of the vegetation and rocks add to the magic of hiking.

We can help you select a suitable hike based on your time availability, difficulty desired, time of year and weather.  Some of our most popular hikes and walks include: the Santa Fe Riverside Park, the Randall Davey Audubon Center, trails off of Hyde Park Road (described below), Tent Rocks, Atalaya ridge, Diablo Canyon, and Bandelier.

 

Here’s an example of some hiking opportunities along Hyde Park road close to Santa Fe:

Beginning at Artist Road / Hyde Park Road, one has many options to hike and explore the outdoors. Just 2.7 miles up Hyde Park Road you will come to the Sierra del Norte portion of the Dale Ball Trail System.  This elaborate network of trails contains over 22 miles of hiking and mountain biking routes.  Because there are so many interconnected paths of various difficulty levels, the Dale Ball Trails are accommodating to everyone.

As you continue your way up Hyde Park Road, you’ll next come to the Chamisa Trail.   This fairly easy trail is 5 miles round-trip and winds through evergreen forest, ending at a grassy meadow beside Tesuque Creek.  September is particularly a perfect time to view the mass expanses of wildflowers in the area.  Several birds, including hawks, ravens, and hummingbirds are also commonly seen along this trail.

After the Chamisa Trail, you’ll enter the Santa Fe National Forest and Hyde Memorial State Park.  The hikes included in this area are the Hyde Park Circle, Borrego, and Bear Wallow trails.  These routes are mostly forested with fir, aspens, and ponderosa pines.  In addition to hiking, Hyde Park also has several places for picnics.

Once you drive out of Hyde Park, you’ll come to the most popular trails, especially in the autumn, the Aspen Vista.  Here is where you’ll truly be engulfed in the beauty of the aspen trees that turn bright golden in late September and early October.  As you continue you’re drive towards the ski basin there are some incredible overlooks.  These scenic spots are great photo opportunities.

Hyde Park Road ends at the Santa Fe Ski Basin.  By now you have climbed nearly 5,000 feet in elevation!  There are several more hikes that branch out from here.  Many of these trails are for either a full day trip or are of a higher level of difficulty.  Because of the high altitude, be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.  As you begin your descent down the mountains and into town, be sure to enjoy the new views of Santa Fe!


Wine

W

New Mexico has a small but thriving wine producing industry. Following New Mexico’s wine trails is a good way to explore the various regional attractions of the state while also taking the opportunity to visit the area’s wineries along the way.

Interestingly enough, New Mexico is the country’s oldest wine growing region. Wine production started in 1633 in central New Mexico along the Rio Grande where a variety of grapes originally from Spain were grown to produce sacramental wine. At one point in the long history of New Mexico wines, the state was the fifth largest producer in the nation at almost a million gallons per year. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, droughts, floods and Prohibition worked to diminish the vineyard areas such that the industry almost disappeared. The industry started its rebirth in the late 1970’s with a few amateur operations. Since then, both commercial and amateur operations have grown and many producers have achieved national as well as international recognition for their quality wines. As of 2011, New Mexico has over 40 wineries and tasting rooms producing almost 700,000 gallons of wine per year.

Visitors to the Santa Fe can experience the northern wine trail that leads from Santa Fe through Espanola and Velarde north through Dixon and Taos. Some of our favorite wineries in this region are Vivac and La Chiripada in Dixon. Vivac is focused on complex reds aged in French oak and has a tasting room/gallery that is open seven days a week. La Chiripada offers wines ranging in style from dry barrel-fermented whites to fruity picnic wines and cellar-quality reds.

Black Mesa in beautiful Velarde produces a variety of selections including a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Riesling and Chardonnay. Estrella Del Norte Vineyard located in the scenic Pojoaque Valley, a 25 minutes north of Santa Fe on the High Road to Taos, has a tasting room featuring their offerings as well as award winning wines from other Northern New Mexico wineries. Santa Fe also has a wine tasting room within walking distance of both of our inns, Vino del Corazon at 235 Don Gaspar. Their most popular wines are Santa Fe Siesta, a spicy sangria style red, reserve Merlot and reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Santa Fe also hosts several wine and food events of note. On the Fourth of July weekend at the 200-acre Spanish colonial living history museum, Los Golondrinas, over a dozen local New Mexico wineries are present for tastings and direct sales. Later in the year in September, the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta is held. This is the state’s largest and premier wine and food event. This weeklong event features wine maker dinners, a wine auction, seminars, and cooking demonstrations with nationally prominent chefs. The event culminates with the “big event” where over 100 wineries from around the globe and numerous local restaurants serve their signature offerings in the spectacular setting of the Santa Fe Opera.

So, on your travels to Santa Fe and through out Northern New Mexico, be sure to allow time to sample the bounty of New Mexico’s family owned wineries. Not only do they offer a great variety of local wines, many of their vineyards and tasting rooms are located in stunning scenic settings near other significant attractions of interest to visitors.


Golf

G

When you tee off at one of New Mexico’s diverse golf courses, you’ll have the feeling that you’ve stumbled onto a great well-kept secret. This unique variety of courses, set in New Mexico’s spectacular high desert scenery combined with favorable weather conditions, allow you to play under turquoise skies and sunny days year-round. Surrounding Santa Fe, there are a number of outstanding courses that are scenically beautiful and surprisingly convenient to reach.

Just a short drive from the inn are courses that will appeal to the occasional golfer as well as the accomplished player wanting a more challenging top-rated course such as Black Mesa Golf Club. Listed below are courses that can be found within a short drive of Santa Fe.
