I had a wonderful time while in Santa Fe. I made many new acquaintances and the Indian Market Events were more than I expected. I will be returning again to Santa Fe.
I liked Albuquerque.
Come visit for Christmas, if you can. On Christmas Eve, everyone's houses are lined with luminarias (paper bags with candles), and everyone walks through town and visits. It's a beautiful, non-commercial, community-oriented way to spend Christmas! Also, the best restaurant in town is Fuego, in La Posada de Santa Fe-- but it's VERY expensive.

Nob Hill is great as the readers above say, but ALSO check out The Old Town District -- that is right off of Rt66/Central Ave near the hostel -- a 1 minute ride by bus or 15 min walk. The Old Town District is the original, old part of the city that was once a part of the old Spanish Empire. The square looks like a scene from the Old West. Check out The American International Rattlesnake Museum there plus the church across the street from it that has a cool gift shop. Lots of shops and copper-topped bars there too. Also if you're into archaeology or geology -- check out Petroglyph Monument which are these old pictures and paintings from the post-caveman days. It's near the Mesa (ancient, dead…
