36 Hours in Santa Fe

If you have the chance to visit Santa Fe, but have only thirty-six hours to spend here, what should you see and do?

The NEW YORK TIMES has some suggestions for you.

(And of course a visit to the Jean Cocteau is a MUST).

Scenic Santa Fe
I had the pleasure of spending the better part of an afternoon in Santa Fe this past summer. Vacationing with friends in Cimarron Canyon for the week, I knew that it was my best chance to witness the majestic Jean Cocteau. Being from north Texas, the thing that struck me about Santa Fe is the use of adobe as a featured material for most of the buildings found there. Even the Starbucks and Wells Fargo were sporting adobe walls. Is there a reason why that is? Is it a civic initiative, an ode to the historical significance of adobe, or simple practically? Oh, and this guide would've come in handy.

Old Santa Fe Inn
If you are going to Santa Fe I recommend staying at this Inn.

It's located between the Jean Cocteau cinema and Old Santa Fe. Just a few blocks from each.

Nice rooms and good WiFi plus free parking. But the best thing about the Inn besides the location is the free breakfast buffet. Fresh breakfast burritos and waffles and lots of fruits. It is excellent.

If you haven't been to Santa Fe you need to go. Great food, shopping and sight seeing. Plus it's one of the most historical cities in America.

Chuck Jones Gallery
My wife and I were wandering around town and came upon this little gallery. It's all animation artwork, mainly (though not exclusively) centered around Chuck Jones. The employees were really friendly, and it was really cool as an animation buff to just stumble upon this.

Definitely recommend.

We'll have to at least try to drop by the Jean Cocteau if/when my wife and I visit Santa Fe during our week in Albuquerque with my family just after Christmas.

What are your tipps for Santa Fe?
You could build the Red Keep or open a museum about Game of Thrones... or a fantasy art gallery... or put the iron throne in front of your house...

My wife and I visited Santa Fe two months ago and we loved it!
We visited the Jean Cocteau, had a glass of wine in the cafe and even got to talk to the owner and have a picture taken with him! Thank you, GRRM! We hope the trip to Brazil you mentioned becomes reality, but we must warn you: be prepared for unbelievable crowds!

Great Food in Santa Fe
You will soon have one more fantastic restaurant in your city. One of our much beloved chefs is closing shop at his landmark Downtown Los Angeles restaurant to move back home to Santa Fe. It was consistently rated in the top 20 restaurants in Los Angeles. I'm sure chef John Sedlar will make a fine addition to your culinary scene!

Santa Fe?
What a conundrous question! I would rather stay and finish my Proust than visit Santa Fe. No offense, George. And even the barenaked ladies of Blossomville would not get me in a packed cinema. Fourteen years in a streak. Ever since I fell down the stairs with all that salty popcorn.

And now you force me to enter 'lame duck' as a captcha. Is this really happening? I am exhausted.
