    Great central park area with so many shops, restaurants, and interesting landmarks nearby. We walked this area countless times during our visit. It's a definite must-see.

    We really enjoyed walking the entire length of Canyon Road and stopping in at various galleries. So much beautiful art!
    We probably would have enjoyed it more had we stopped at some point for a beverage or snack -- just to pace ourselves better and vary the afternoon a bit. So take that little nugget of advice.
    If you really wanted to take in every gallery, it would take days. We skipped over many, due to burnout and a dinner reservation we needed to get to, and really enjoyed those we did visit.

    Beautiful church. We didn't actually go in, but we enjoyed taking in the beauty and grandeur on the outside. I even walked the labyrinth.

    As they say, if you get lost, you're doing it right. Hidden passages, interactive pictures, awesome lighting. Wonderful experience, would do it again.

    The artwork here is beyond amazing and it’s free to see! When we visited, there was a display of textile art that was gorgeous. We walked through every floor and corridor, and the amount of artwork could have rivaled most museums. There were even artistic benches. It seems nobody knows about this place, as we had it almost to ourselves. Thankfully, my fellow trip advisers alerted me, and now I do the same for you.

    Very interesting look at the life of the early Spanish settlers. If you come to the Rancho you MUST take the included docent tour. Our guide (Tom?) was excellent! Without him we would have just wandered around without learning much. He brought everything to life!

    I guess it's cool to say I visited the oldest church in the US. Sadly I don't remember much about it! I think we wandered through quickly on our way to other stuff. It's historic, for sure!

    Great museum! I learned so much about New Mexico history and the people who lived here over time and who fought over it. I loved the Indian Market display too. Definitely a must-see.

    We hiked up to the cross, reading the signage along the way. It's an actual sidewalk, so not a rough hike by any means.
    I loved the view from the top! You can see the whole city and beyond -- it feels like forever.

    It's a short hike up to see the petroglyphs and pretty cool to see them up close. And the view from up top is quite stunning.
    The trail is so poorly marked that I suspect we weren't even on the trail. It got pretty challenging in the steeper parts.

    I really enjoyed visiting the railyard. For some reason I expected it to have more vendors. The vegetables looked wonderful and If I wasnt traveling I probably would of bought quite a bit.

    Unfortunately we were not in time visit the inside. We would have loved to seen the inside of this house. But just seeing the outside, and knowing it’s history was a real thrill for us.

    My husband and I called Bonanza Creek Ranch on a Friday to schedule a tour. Sunday morning at 10 am was the next availability so we took that time. I have been wanting to tour Bonanza Creek Ranch for years. Tours are not available when filming is happening. The only way to see the ranch is by scheduling a tour. The film sets are not viewable from a public road. We were lucky enough to get Jack Caffrey as our tour guide. Jack has been in hundreds of movies and TV shows. He had many interesting stories to tell about the Bonanza Creek Ranch and himself. Jack is most known for his work on Natural Born Killers, Lonesome Dove and American Playhouse. My husband and I toured privately for 2 hours then another couple joined us for the nearly 2 more hours. I think Jack spent more time with us than usual. Bonanza Creek Ranch is located south of Santa Fe and has several large movie sets. Many movies and TV series have been filmed there, including Lonesome Dove, Hostiles, Manhattan, Cowboys & Aliens, Wild Hogs, Only the Brave, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Appaloosa, 3:10 to Yuma, Silverado, Lighting Jack, The Cowboys, Into The West, All The Pretty Horses, The Lazarus Man, The Man From Laramie and more. I highly recommend touring Bonanza Creek Ranch. The cost was $100 ($50 each) for the two of us and we gave a tip as well.
