Nope, nothing else - unless you want to visit six fascinating museums, visit the Audobon Center, hike any number of trails, go up to the ski basin, see Meow Wolf, sip a margarita on the rooftop Coyote Cantina, listen to live music at The Cowgirl.....shall I go on?

I do not know what "The Plaza is nice but it's a two-hour affair, on the weekend" means... To short a time, too long a time?

Everyone has different opinions.

We have lived in New Mexico 20 years this time, by choice because I had been here before, several times.

We live about 50 miles Southwest of Santa Fe.

These websites should help you determine what you can do:

Our favorite, which we take visitors to is the free bus to the top of Canyon Road and walk to the bottom and catch the free bus back on its path...

Good luck and welcome to New Mexico!
Thanks a bundle. Didn't know any of that. We'll be coming back this summer so I'll make sure to venture out of the Plaza this time. One question. Is Canyon Rd part of or very close to the Plaza? It reads like that.

Yes, Canyon Road is within walking distance of the plaza.

There's world class art (rivalled only by Paris and New York), world-class hiking within a five- to ten-minute drive, a multitude of little bars with good ambience scattered in and around the Plaza (many of which aren't visible from the road), some good restaurants scattered around town which serve New Mexican food, lots of pueblo style architecture (if you get a chance to do house tours, it's worth it), skiing on the mountain, there's a creek (Santa Fe River) that runs through town, you can sometimes see people fly-fishing it, lots of interesting people around - both locals (hispanics and natives) who are involved in politics or art, as well as visitors and part-time residents who tend to be on the wealthy side of things (and occasionally famous people) who are also intereting to talk to.
