Enchantment on a Budget



Description:

Santa Fe's most expensive lodging is found either in the downtown Plaza area or at several resorts outside of town. But along Cerrillos Road are plenty of chain hotels, motels, and more moderately-priced accommodations. The Santa Fe Sage Inn is a good choice as it's across the street from the Santa Fe Railyard and close to downtown as well, while being very affordable. There are plenty of inexpensive restaurants throughout town. The Museum of New Mexico offers a 4 day museum pass that is good for unlimited visits to all 4 of their Santa Fe museums for $20. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum offers free entrance on Friday evenings, 5 to 8, the Dale Ball Trail System is a wonderful complex of hiking trails in the foothills on the city limit that has no access fees, the Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau offers free handout information and individual advice - located at the Santa Fe Convention Center downtown, many of the hotels offer music in the evenings without a cover charge, the Palace of the Governors has a Native American artists program every day featuring Indian artists selling their work - the vendor's market is free and the work is guaranteed to be authentic, of high quality, and most of the work is reasonably priced.
