Santa Fe’s Best Summer Activities

If you’re looking to get into the outdoors a bit, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National MonumentBandelier National Monument, or the Ghost Ranch at Abiquiu, which inspired famed New Mexico artist Georgia O’Keeffe.  At these destinations, you’ll see the beauty and history of New Mexico firsthand, as you explore hiking trails, enjoy stunning vistas, and discover remnants of ancient dwellings from the early cultures that once inhabited these lands.  If you’d like to create your own adventure, let the Dale Ball Trail system guide you into the mountains, where your sense of adventure will lead you to your next destination. No matter what it is that you’re looking for while in Santa Fe, these few summer activities will keep you entertained.  Book your room at our luxury Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast today, before it’s too late to enjoy the best of Santa Fe’s summer activities.
