We are thinking about taking a short trip to the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area and would welcome any recommendations concerning lodging, dining, sightseeing, etc. I have been through New Mexico on the train; however, we have never been to New Mexico and have the opportunity to take a trip. That would allow us to cross another state off our "to visit" list. I know we missed the Balloon Festival , but that event remains high on our bucket list. Would taking a day-trip to Santa Fe be reasonable or should we plan on spending the night there? Thanks for the help.
