    The walk up to the Cross of the Martyrs is all uphill, but there are plaques along the way which give an outline of the history of New Mexico. It feels as though you're walking through a timeline, and...  more »

    Adjacent to Fort Marcy Park, atop a hill overlooking Santa Fe. Gave us an appreciation for the mountains that are so close to Santa Fe in many directions. The cross has a sign on the bottom of it that...  more »

    You do get a sense of the Santa Fe story on this historical walkway. The trail is marked with details about Santa Fe's discovery, settlement and growth. A nice climb on a nice day with benches along the way.

    Interesting location, great on Santa Fe. Also, can learn a little history from plates installed along the pathway.

    Easy climb. Great view the city and surrounding area. The best part is the history plaques along the path that start with the early at the bottom and become the most recent at the top.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
