Local Area Activities
So many festivals, so little time! Santa Fe has festivals May through October every year. There is a listing on our Events page to pick from. There are opera performances; dance routines; symphony performances; and plaza music weekly during the summer months. Pecos River beckons the fisherman, especially those who enjoy fly fishing. White water rafting is adventurous on the Rio Grande. Hiking, four wheeling, you name it we can probably find it. Did we mention shopping and dining?? Again, so little time.....
Along with canoeing and kayaking, rafting provides everything from placid floats in the Lower Rio Grande Gorge to class-four thrills and chills as you churn through the frothing rapids of the Taos Box. The most exciting times are late May to July when the water is highest, but some local stretchers are negotiable all year long.
Hundreds of great eating opportunities, from the casual street vendor to elegant 5 star gourmet dining. Dont forget to try the "green" and "red" chili!
