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 Fé-- but it's VERY expensive. If you enjoy the arts or architecture, be sure to visit the Santa Fe Opera House. It's a gorgeous semi-outdoors building-- I saw Carmen there, and during her death scene, we were also watching a lightning storm. Cold, but fabulous! Santa Fe is a great place to visit. Be warned, however, that the shopping is expensive-- and if you don't like pretentious art galleries and boutiques, you probably won't enjoy shopping there at all.
I live in Albuquerque. I would say that the best part of Albuquerque is Nob hill because it is pretty popular and it is lined with plenty of shops like the Buffalo Exchange where you can get good name brand clothes cheap, I would also recommend checking out downtown on the weekends. I also say to check out the zoo.
Albuquerque has its charms but I lived in town one fall near UNM and I've never seen that much police activity in my life. Also going around town you are pretty much guilty until proven innocent for anything. I think businesses get swindled a lot so you are kept watch over. After visiting in winter for eight years it's kinda wearing on me. Crime, drugs, and who knows what else, and now drug violence from Mexico! Good food, pretty old town, and the outdoor places/activities make up for it as well as the river, mountain, and petroglyphs trails.
I liked Albuquerque.
Santa Fé is a very nice community. If you like the food from the area, you will enjoy it. If you have the time, take a run to Taos, especially if you like to shop or engage in winter sports.
I had a wonderful time while in Santa Fé. I made many new acquaintances and the Indian Market Events were more than I expected. I will be returning again to Santa Fe.
