Southwest



The bulk of Santa Fe's commercial growth has extended in this direction, to the Southwest of the Plaza, down the ever bustling Cerrillos road thoroughfare. If you're searching for a big box or other chain store, you're likely to find it here, along with plenty of national hotel and motel chains. But mixed in among the Applebee's and Starbucks are a few local gems like the inauspicious, but exceptional MuDu Noodles or funky Counter Culture Cafe, just a block off the main drag. Besides the neon lights, this part of town is also home to a few spots that might be worth a stop, like numerous parks and the Santa Fe Rodeo. Driving the many miles down Cerrillos from downtown past Interstate 25 can present opportunities for off the beaten path exploring. For the most part, the city comes to a screech halt as it buts up against the interstate that connects the capitol with the state's other main population centers. But if you're feeling adventurous, a trip to the old mining towns-turned-living movie sets of Cerrillos and Madrid is well worth the day trip. For the brew and music fan, a trip to the Santa Fe Brewing Company is also worthwhile.
