Travel Tips for Santa Fe

Be Sensible...

by VeronicaG

Ladies, leave the heels and fashion boots at home...please. When visiting in winter, there are slippery patches on sidewalks and streets.

Wear footwear with TREADS. Although there is nothing trendy about snow/hiking boots they really help you navigate safely wherever you are hoping to go. Expect snow in the winter in Santa Fe.

If you're going out in the evening, carry your heels or place them in a bag to change into later.

Pueblo Etiquette

by goodfish

Visiting some of New Mexico's pueblos is an excellent way to learn about the history and culture of the indigenous peoples. Because they are recognized as Sovereign Nations, they also are allowed their own specific laws governing conduct and accessibility, which vary greatly from tribe to tribe. For instance, some allow visitors to roam freely, some can be seen only on guided tours and still others allow no visitors at all.

Beyond that, here's some common regulations you can expect:
• Kivas and other sacred places are usually off-limits - respect areas designated as such.

• Photography is often severely restricted or not allowed at all. Some pueblos allow still cameras but no video, and you may be asked to buy a permit for taking pictures. Never photograph the people unless given permission, or specific areas posted off-limits to cameras.

• Don't look into windows, doorways or enter houses unless specifically allowed to do so, don't climb on walls or ladders, and keep a tight rein on little ones.

• Check for pueblos that may be closed on religious days and if allowed to attend ceremonial dances, behave as if you would in church - no chatting during the dance or applause afterwards.

Best rule of thumb is to acquaint yourself with each pueblo's rules at the start of your visit and to remember that you are a guest in someone's home.

Rio Grande

by kala6487

If you drive to Taos, you will see glimpes of the Rio Grande. There are several places along Hwy 68 in which to stop and get closer. When I was there, the river was rushing furiously past, so be careful. It is also possible take whitewater trips down the river with experienced guides.

A couple of fun hikes

by CCW

Santa Fe has lots of hiking trails, and there's a great little guide, 'Day Hikes in the Santa Fe Area,' that you can buy at most local bookstores. If you have limited time and are an experienced hiker, you'll get the most bang for your buck by taking the Atalaya Trail, which starts just off Wilderness Gate Road and soars 1200 feet to a mountaintop with a spectacular view. Note: be careful to park ONLY in designated areas, or you're likely to find yourself towed (Wilderness Gate is a private road). If you can't find a spot in the small parking lot, you'll need to park down at St. John's College (follow the signs) and hike about a quarter-mile up a boring arroyo to get to the real trailhead. Boots necessary, a rain poncho is a good idea in the summer, and this is NOT a good place to be in a thunderstorm! For the less ambitious, or if it's aspen season (usually early October in these parts), take the (short and easy) Aspen Vista trail off Hyde Park Road -- not only are the views terrific, but the aspens are spectacular.

Light up your life

by karenincalifornia about Primavera Gallery

If you are looking for that light fixture that no one else has, go to Primavera Gallery in downtown Santa Fe. Their fixtures are works of art. No two of these hand-blown light fixtures are the same. They are simply gorgeous.
