    What about four-star Bishop's Lodge, an excellent destination-resort option that gives you access to loads of family-friendly activities in the scenic Sangre de Cristo foothills just outside of Santa Fe (http://vacation.away.com/hotels/travel-ld-cid4322-santa-fe-hotelid31950-bishops-lodge-resort-and-spa-hotel.html). Alternatively, if this looks a little pricey, try for something more affordable in downtown Santa Fe and hit some of the trails in places like Hyde Memorial State Park or Nambe Pueblo (http://www.nambefalls.com/aboutnambe.htm). All the fresh air, plus wildlife, in these two parks are sure to tire the kids out (in a good way!).

    Get yourself over to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, with some beautiful scenery plus rugged hikes and camping. It's a long drive but you'll find yourself in a lovely spot, which is near-deserted most of the year. Here's a link to some more info: http://vacation.away.com/travel-do-guadalupe-mountains-national-park-texas-sidwcmdev_067913.html

    While these don't have listings in NM, the following two articles on GORP.com (an Away Network site) profile some awesome rivers that might suit your family: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/activity/paddling/top10_kidrivers.htm, http://gorp.away.com/gorp/activity/paddling/top10_kidrivers.htm. Hopefully of some use as you're planning your trip. Also, as you're in Texas, have you considered Big Bend NP? Some great floats there, or you could try the Texas Gulf Coast. More ideas on that front at: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/activity/paddling/pad_tx.htm.
