Itineraries for Weekend Getaways in New Mexico

Three great itineraries for three very different weekend getaways in New Mexico. Just an hour from the Albuquerque airport, Santa Fe lends itself perfectly to a romantic weekend. Isolated, countercultural Taos is worth the extra 90-minute drive if you’re really looking to get off the map and off the grid, while Albuquerque offers a fun and funky city break, along with great outdoor activities.

A Taste of Art History in Taos and Santa Fe

Santa Fe and Taos have long histories of fostering creative output, much of it inspired by the surrounding landscape. Art lovers need not spend all their time in museums (though there are some great ones). It can be just as rewarding to visit studios, talk with artists, and see how objects are made.

If driving along Pacific cliffs appeals to you, hop on Pacific Coast Highway 1 when you hit San Luis Obispo.

Hands down, the most stunning attraction is the 50-mile Going-to-the-Sun Road. A tour of the road over Logan Pass will give you a small taste of the park’s grandeur with waterfalls, hanging valleys, and sculpted peaks.
