TRAVELING THE WORLD AND THRU TIME
1. Lake Abiquiu
Photos cannot capture the beauty of Lake Abiquiu. Georgia O'Keeffe lived about 15 minutes from here, and she used this lake as the backdrop for some of her paintings.
(You'll see that same mesa in the background of the next picture.)
(How cool is that ???)
Aside from being the perfect spot for an aspiring artist, Abiquiu is the ideal location for some sunbathing and a picnic with your pup.
2. Go for a Hike
I'm always all about staying active while on vacation. If I don't, I will feel like a couch. Hiking is really great because you get to explore the scenery in your area and see great views. Not to mention, you'll work up a killlller appetite for that restaurant lunch you're about to eat.

These little numbers are light and suuuuper easy to move around in. Trust me, they are so so comfortable. You can find an entire rack of them for around $7 each at your local Plato's Closet.
3. Canyon Rd.
This is THE ART SPOT of Santa Fe. You MUST come here and admire all the southwestern and contemporary art they have, even if you're not planning on purchasing a $25,000 statue....

4. Visit Madrid
Madrid's a fun, eclectic community that makes for a perfect lunch and fun afternoon outing with plenty of stellar shops and photo-ops.
5. Visit a Book Store
I love visiting book stores on vacation because I enjoy skimming through style-guide books and cookbooks and architecture books. Basically if a book smells good, has pretty pictures, and isn't too heavy for me to hold and read for a while, I'll be content. Read about my goal of writing a book here.
6. Go for a drive
Like hiking and visiting bookstores, I like to go for drives in each of my travel destinations. The pleasure centers in my brain light up when I get to sit there and look out the window and have the occasional jam session. I promise that you'll dig it, too.
That's a wrap for Santa Fe. Comment down below with some of your favorite Santa Fe attractions or travel tips!
