Favorite Places: Santa Fe, New Mexico

Where does a travel host go on vacation?

People always ask me: “If your job is to travel where do you go on vacation?”  Two words: Santa Fe.  It’s a place that I’ve returned to six times and have brought my mom and my sister on separate girl trips.  I love Santa Fe not only for it’s desert beauty, but how It reminds us through ancient sites that the colonists weren’t the first Americans.  Its a great place to enjoy our vibrant Native American culture and a wonderful reminder that a world-class art scene can be attitude free.  Most importantly, at an elevation of 7,000 feet one margarita goes a lot further!

  • My favorite Walk in the Woods is the Aspen Vista Trail.  It’s a gorgeous hike (moderate) thru a forest of luminescent aspen that make you feel like you’re walking through a Klimt painting.  The sweeping view of the Sangre de Cristo’s is so beautiful I always get slightly emotional when I begin the hike.  In fact I’ve nick named the trail “The Tear Jerker.”   Find it on Artist Rd. past mile marker 13.
