Touring New Mexico

Traveling time between Albuquerque and Santa Fe is about an hour if you take Interstate 25; Santa Fe to Taos averages nearly two hours. Travel plans between places should be loosely structured to allow for adventure and road side stops. New Mexico offers magnificent landscape, colors and even tremendous storms, so pull off the road occasionally just for fun. Consider traveling via one of the many "scenic" routes or a visit to area attractions.

As you travel northern New Mexico, you will notice signs to the various Indian Pueblos or villages—nineteen in all. If you wish to stop at a pueblo, please ask if the pueblo is open to visitors on that particular day. Pueblos invite the public on special Feast Days.

Check our Events at the Indian Pueblos article to see when these Feast Days occur.
