Hello, all. I've already found many great ideas on these forums (thank you!), but still need some help from you.
We fly into Albuquerque mid-afternoon, driving to Santa Fe for 5 nights there, 4 full days to see the city + day trips, including Los Alamos and Bandelier. We're trying to decide the best way to spend 2-3 days (3 nights) seeing things in/around Taos and ABQ before a very early morning flight home. Not looking to slight either city, just have a limited amount of time.
We'd like to see Taos Pueblo; are we better off visiting Taos as a day trip from Santa Fe or staying there for 1-2 nights? We can extend a day in Santa Fe if that's best. Need to spend our last night in Albuquerque, but is only 1 day before heading home enough to see the city and surrounding area? Hope to also catch sunset at Sandia.
My husband and I like history, railroads, scenery, Very Easy hikes, great food. Maybe some shopping. Many thanks in advance for your suggestions. All the best, bonnielady
