Because who has time to read flowery reviews of everything? Expect honesty. And short posts.
This week we head to Santa Fe.
Santa Fe was a bit of a culture shock, in a good way. We were 100% the youngest people there and it was a bit expensive for people in their mid 20s/early 30s. There’s not a lot to do other than shop or eat, but it’s got a vibe that had us thinking about going back to stay at a resort outside of town to spa it up.
Hotel Tonight was our go to on this road trip. Without them would would have never found Hotel St. Francis.
Honestly, the room was small. Very small. The decor was Instagrammable. The cocktails were delicious. The service was impeccable. The location made everything walkable.
We didn’t have a bad meal in Santa Fe. Eat local, you won’t regret straying away from chain restaurants.
Cafe Pasqual’s changed. our. lives. Honestly. Please eat here. Multiple times.
Tia Sophia’s is a local staple. It hasn’t its decor or menu in changed in years but don’t let that scare you off. Come for breakfast and savor that New Mexican goodness. Honestly, don’t regret the havoc it wrecks on your bowls for the next 2 days. It’s worth it.
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum was closed when we went but the universe conspired to get us on a private tour of the archives instead. Honestly, it was interesting but I would have preferred to see the art instead. Go see the art for me if you go to Santa Fe.
Take a walk. Don’t take a map with you. Honestly, this is the best way to see a city. Just get lost and see what you stumble upon. Santa Fe is that kind of city - you can find things to do if you want, but nothing you won't feel bad about missing out on.
