Santa Fe It’s A Wrap: Our Top 5 Favorites

If you have been following our adventure, you know that we have been working and living in Santa Fe, NM since January. Our Santa Fe adventure is coming to an end in just a few days. We thought it would be an awesome idea to show a recap of just some of the beauty and history that Santa Fe has to offer.

When you plan a visit near Santa Fe, here are some awesome sites to add to your bucket list.

1. Bandelier National Monument

Bandelier National Monument is one of our favorites in New Mexico. There are over 33,000 acres within the parameters of Bandelier. Rich in history and home to Ancestral Pueblans. When visiting Bandelier, you are immersed in history. You will feel the presence of the Ancestral Pueblans as you climb into the very homes in which they lived.

Cost $25 per car load or free with National Park Pass.

Sorry, no dogs allowed. 

Be sure to check out the video of our visit to Bandelier National Monument and see for yourself. 


2. Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

Tent Rocks National Monument was a pleasant surprise. We hiked 3 miles round trip through massive and narrow canyons. Cone-shaped tent rock formations were created from volcanic activity 6 to 7 million years ago. The geological rock formations measure up to 90 feet. If you have enough energy to climb the 600 feet to the overlook, the views are breathtaking.

Cost is $5 to enter or free with the National Park Pass. 

Sorry, no dogs allowed.

3. Petroglyph National Monument

Petroglyph National Monument is one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America. With over 400 petroglyphs and a plethora of huge volcanic rocks, this visit tops Nick’s favorite. The petroglyphs are impressive and it is a fun experience to decipher the pictures. Hiking and climbing the massive volcanic rocks and cliffs is allowed. There are several entrances, so research carefully. We searched the entrance with the most petroglyphs and it was located inside a neighborhood.

There is no cost at the entrance we chose. 

Dogs are allowed. 

Be sure to check out our video of this amazing hike. 

4. Meow Wolf

It is difficult to find words to describe Meow Wolf. However, it is an interactive, quirky and strange experience. Your senses will be overloaded with the colors, sights and sounds. There is a mystery to solve if you choose. Either way, plan to spend most of your day at Meow Wolf.

The cost is pricey at $29 for adults and $21 for kids under 13. 

Be sure to check out our blog and video of this strange and quirky experience.

5. Tinkertown Museum

Tinkertown Museum is located in Sandia Park, near Albuquerque. However, we could not leave it out because of location. Tinkertown Museum is a culmination of the work of Ross Ward. Inside you will find over 40 years of wood carved figures, characters, villages and more. It is apparent that the 60’s and 70’s were a huge inspiration for this artist. As I write this, my description does not do it justice, so click the link below for the details.

The cost is more than fair at $9.50 for the three of us.
