  • I'm sure it's wonderful in the spring/summer, but fall is fall and not much to see. What in the world....you must put more words where nothing more is needed?  more »
  • We went here last year during the holidays and several times since then. It is a wonderful garden with lots of space and interesting plants. They did a wonderful job last Christmas with the night show...  more »
  • After seeing the ABQ botanical garden there’s no comparison. You can go thru Santa Fe’s in maybe 15 minutes. We were there 2 days after a killing frost so the flowers were gone. But even so, it’s smal...  more »

  • The Garden is a new add-on to the city since it is only four years old as of writing this. It will clearly be expanded over time, and given the thought that went into it I know it will be wonderful. Short meandering paths provide beauty and education. Among the plants you will will find lizards, bees and a host of other tiny creatures. It is a wonderful place for a short visit. Be aware there is not much shade so you might bake in the summer months.
  • Visited first time at the Water is Life festival several weeks ago (June-20170. New addition to Santa Fe, located adjacent to Museum Hill on Camino Lejo Come here to figure out the name of that shrub you couldn't ID on your last hike. Volunteers are helpful and knowledgeable. Lots of places to sit in the shade (or sun in winter) and enjoy desert flowers, songbirds, pollinators, and an occasional hawk. As you walk through, striped lizards dart under the mesquite, easily evading you and the roadrunners.
  • With the expanded area, it's a nice visit. While not immersive like a big botanical garden, it is well designed, themed, and laid out.
  • Very pretty. They had complimentarily shade umbrellas out the day we visited! Oh so useful.
  • Absolutely fabulous visit. Not to be missed! Terrific plantings, setting & views! One of the best new botanical gardens in the US!

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.
