“This is a fabulous museum-always a great show going on. Also, Museo de las Americas is smack in the middle of Sante Fe Arts district. Many other great art venues, fabulous restaurants/cafes, great people watching. First Friday of every month is the art walk-everything is open late and people strolling the street walking in and out of galleries. A Great time!”

With more than 100 years old this place offers you a delicious meal, a unique atmosphere and at the same time brief history, since at their tables they ate buffalo bill and bull sitting. one of the best places to visit without a doubt”

“This spa is in the elegant Brown Palace Hotel, which was built in 1892. It's historically significant and simply gorgeous! People typically raise their eyebrow most favorably when you mention staying, dining and/or having high tea at The Brown Palace. It's is of course the same if you've indulged at their spa. It's downtown, which is about a 10 minute drive. I have a friend that indulges there on occasion. She loves it!”
