Day 5: Santa Fe

Saturday was spent seeing the best that Santa Fe had to offer. We began our day walking through the Santa Fe Railyard Farmer’s Market, seeing local artists’ work, fresh produce, baked goods and live music (Honky Tonk Tuesdays).

Right next to the market was Site Santa Fe, one of the best contemporary museums in the area.

After grabbing some food from the Farmer’s Market for lunch, we headed towards the many galleries of Canyon road. First up was the Gerald Peters Gallery, where we saw former Ball State University professor Kevin Duffy’s piece in the Gold Finch Project.

We split off and continued to explore the galleries along the road. A mixture of contemporary works, interactive sculptures, and antiques were seen. After the galleries, we headed towards the plaza. Along the way we stopped by the Loretto Chapel to see the Miraculous Stairs, as well as the St. Francis of Assissi Cathedral.

Next on the agenda were the Contemporary Native Arts Museum and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, as well as shopping around the many unique stores and authentic Native American vendors in the plaza.

We wrapped up our time in downtown Santa Fe by eating at the Plaza Café.

The first night of Santa Fe was ended with pool-side fun and shenanigans.

--PSA: Santa Fe is an extremely dog-friendly place, much to our excitement!
