Was maybe considering going to Taos for the day. Is this a good idea? Absolutely - start early in the day and take the "High Road to Taos" and come back via the "Low Road" which goes through the Taos Canyon alongside the Rio Grande.

Any good scenic non strenuous hikes? Like 4 miles RT? We like the White Place in Abiquiu (Gerogia O'Keeffe has a series of paintings of it) and Tent Rocks National We also like Tent Rocks Monument which is on the Cochiti Pueblo outside Cochiti Lake - about 30-40 minutes out of Santa Fe.

What about pueblos? Taos and Acoma are probably my favorites. If you go down to Albuquerque, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center might be interesting for you.

Any good markets with native american crafts/pottery/jewelry etc? Under the portal of the Palace of the Governors, located on the north side of the Plaza, you'll find a large number of Indian artists and their wares.

Also any good souveneir shops for the touristy stuff like t-shirts, hoodies etc? Not my thing, but there are plenty of such shops in the Plaza area.

Hope this helps. Together with the links others have provided you'll find plenty to do and enjoy.

Los Alamos is a possible day trip and a unique peek into US history. The historical and Bradbury museums are small but informative.

Glad you decided NOT to drive. There will be snow in CO. It is mountainous. Sorry, for me a terrifying drive.

There's so much to do in Santa Fe it is difficult to post here and much depends on what you like to do. Santa Fe is gorgeous. Suggest: Loretto Chapel; Cathedral of St. Francis (can't miss it); all the shops and Indian Market on the plaza; Chimayo. Do you like to gamble? Buffalo Thunder Casino Resort (shameless plug, but the manager Kiki was fantastic - I named my puppy Kiki and it really is a gorgeous casino. LOL.).

Read the brochures/flyers in your hotel lobby. There will probably be some really great flamenco dance exhibitions/shows at local venues most weekends. Shopping on Canyon Road. Geronimo (pricey restaurant but VERY nice, excellent food). El Farol (restaurant, my sentimental favorite, but not what it used to be). Make reservations for restaurants!

Otherwise, what everyone else has said here and so much more...I need to get my Santa Fe fix...sigh.
