My abiding memory of Santa Fe was drinking cocktails on the rooftop patio at the Coyote Cafe and looking out in the bluest, most vivid evening skies you can imagine. Yes, it's a Santa Fe cliche, but itall felt very Georgia O'Keeffe. Everything else to the downtown area around Santa Fe Plaza felt a bit fake and glossy -- lots of great art to browse and legions of rich-looking boomers and artsy types seemed to be the flavor. It gets a little grungier as you head away from the center. The Cowgirl BBQ on S. Guadalupe St. is a nice casual spot for quesadillas, wings, and beers in beer garden. We stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe, located close to the Santa Fe Railyard Park and about a 15-minute walk from the downtown area. Good choice for lodging.

Absolutely worth the visit. I think the best time to go is in Fall, especially during the annual Zozobra celebration when they burn a three-story tall effigy and participants stream back into town shouting "Viva la fiesta." Christmas time is also really pretty. The food is absolutely amazing, but only if you like spicy dishes. Order your plates "Christmas" to get both red and green chile sauce.
