How I Got There
Santa Fe has a tiny airport that I flew in to on United from San Francisco via Denver. The airport is so small that it does not have an automated baggage system. Instead, a human hauls all of the luggage from the plane to a little window near the terminal and loads them in one by one onto a rolling rack.
Where I Stayed
I stayed at the lovely La Posada de Santa Fe. This is a resort and spa that is a part of the tribute portfolio. It is a great place to relax. My room was a small cottage tucked away in the back of the property and came with a wood-burning fireplace.
How I Got Around
Santa Fe is a pretty small town. They do have a small public transit system and some shuttle services. I mostly got around using Lyft and Uber. They did not have any scooters when I visited, but this may have changed by now.
What I did
After arriving and checking in to the hotel, I wandered around a bit and made my way to the Pink Adobe restaurant for dinner.
The next day I explored more of the downtown area and visited the New Mexico History Museum, Palace of the Governors, Gerogia O'Keefe Museum, and the State Capitol. I had lunch downtown and dinner at the restaurant at the hotel. I planned to go to Meow Wolf but the line was too long, so I gave up.
What Was The Fuss
Santa Fe is a charming, sleepy, and historic town that is home to dozens of art galleries, craft shops, and has some of the oldest buildings in the United States. It is a great place for a relaxing weekend getaway.
