Our last full day in Santa Fe was a combination of all that (great art, history, food, and relaxation) and more!
Day 4: Santa Fe, New Mexico Itinerary
Breakfast @ Tia Sophia (@ 7:30AM again!)
Pecos Pueblo National Historical Park (we would have gone to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks had it not been for the wildfire)
Late lunch/dinner of Spanish tapas @ La Boca
Strolling downtown/ Santa Fe art galleries
Not as busy as our full day in Taos the day before but still a lot of activities that started with, breakfast at Tia Sophia
I’m not scared of some spicy pepper! Hotter the better, I say… Our waiter was from Puebla, Mexico where I spent 4 great weeks in 2005.
To walk off our big breakfast, we headed to Pecos National Historical Park, just 35 miles outside of Santa Fe.
Now for the rest and relaxation part of the holiday… I booked my parents at Ten Thousand Waves, a Japanese spa, for massages.
Kevin, not being a fan of massages, wasn’t keen on going so after dropping the parents off, we went to check out Shidoni Foundry and Gallery.
Mom said the massage was really great and that her body felt so light she could probably fly! By now it was close to 3PM and the gang was hungry, so we “flew” over to La Boca back in Santa Fe.
After a 2-hour lunch/dinner, it was time for a stroll. We spent the rest of the evening exploring Santa Fe and its many wonderful museums and galleries, and admiring all the fantastic architecture. There were musicians everywhere we looked, friendly locals dancing and enjoying themselves, and a lot more art and history to take in.
