Help with trip planning

Ok, really need your help with our trip plans! My husband and I love Santa Fe, normally we spend the majority of our time hiking, walking and generally just exploring. But.... my husband is now having back issues and it appears lots of walking willl not be on our agenda. We are arriving Nov 11, and staying for 4 days, what would be some suggestions for a non walking trip to Santa Fe. We will definitely go to Ten Thousand Waves, but what else? We are in our late 50's, love art, history, nature and food! We will be staying at Inn on the Alameda!

Sounds like a good time for a NM spa vacation. Sign up for a massage at 10,000 waves and do the same for a trip over for a soak at Ojo Caliente.

How will he be in a vehicle? Lots of scenic drives in the area.

Maybe a day long road trip to Taos, take the High Road one direction and Low Road the other. I prefer the High Road up, to have time to stop and see Chimayo and then quick stops along the way. Check to see if Taos Pueblo is open, not a difficult walk there. If short walks are ok, then stroll around the Plaza area, maybe stopping for different bites to eat and drinks. The former Bobcat Bite now known as The Bite is now located downtown, great green chile cheeseburgers. Nearby is the relocated Jalapenos for great Mexican food with awesome service. Del Charro has some good and cheap food! Many hotel bars and lobbies have places to sit and enjoy music. Hotel Santa Fe has Ronald Roybal in the evenings play both Indian flute and Spanish guitar. El Farol has music and La Fonda is a fun place for people watching. If it is reasonably warm a beer on the balcony at Marble Taproom (they have heaters out there too). Also maybe take one of the open air van tours around town. Fun and something different. Drive up to the ski basin to see the views and snow!

thanks,, we've booked the afternoon at Ten Thousand Waves, and we're also booking Santa Fe School of Cooking. We're planning on driving up to Taos Ski and points in between and to Abiquiu, as he can sit and drive in a car with no pain! Defintely want to go to the Bite. We're also booking Restaurant Martin, Santa Cafe (our two favorites),.
