What time is it in santa fe new mexico


We are driving to Tucson from Denver for a wedding on June 6th. We thought we would visit Santa Fe we have not been there for 30 years and Taos never been there.

Exact time now, time zone,...

My husband thinks we need four full days, but I wonder if there is enough to do. We are tentatively planning to stay in Santa Fe the whole time and do day trips to Albuquerque and Taos.

Current local time in USA...

Are four days a good amount of time. With a little exploring, this will be a full day. Explore the "City Different, and a second night. You may enjoy a ride up the Sandia Peak Tramway the longest in the world for the mile views, sunset, and city lights below. There are restaurants at both the bottom and top of the tramway We remove posts that do not follow our posting guidelines, and we reserve the right to remove any post for any reason. Given your plans, oh yes, 4 days.

SF is the kind of place that, with side trips, could take weeks. To me, ABQ and especially Taos are fine for a day.

It's always fun to see those with one bias or another making suggestions on the TripAdvisor Forum. Our bias is for Taosobviously. If you're driving from Denveryou're going to reach Taos before you get to Santa Fe. At least one night is needed to truly get any taste of Taos other than a drive through the town. As with other posts on this topic, we hope you can find a middle ground and split the time between the two.

The two towns are not the same and each has its charm and uniqueness worthy of a stay. It's a prettier drive south from Taos along the High Road than in the reverse. We don't recommend driving all the way to Santa Fe and then spending a day trip driving all the way back up to Taos and then back to Santa Fe, essentially covering the same ground twice when you've only got 4 days.

As with our other posts, our biggest bias is against spending more time behind the wheel than on the ground, so What time is it in santa fe new mexico tend to discourage lots of driving when there's so much to see and do that are easy walks in either Taos or Santa Fe. We agree with the advice. We actually have added an extra day and we will stay in Taos for one or two nights before heading to Santa Fe. I've been here 28 years and I haven't seen it all. The question is how do I make the most of my four days?

One thing that is not usually on the tourist list is a visit to the Lensic Performing Arts Center http: Check out their calendar to see if there is anything that would interest you during your stay. I'm sure you would enjoy an evening there.

It is on San Francisco Street; just down from the Plaza. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
