Giving Thanks….In Santa Fe!

Fall is arguably the best time to visit Santa Fe. The summer crowds have thinned and the city is infused with the earthy scent of freshly harvested green chile roasting on the streets. The aspen leaves begin to turn a brilliant shade of gold towards the end of September, and the days are crisp with autumn air, yet still bathed by the warm sun.

Even with the cooler weather making its way into New Mexico, Santa Fe has a way of making our hearts warm. The holidays are on their way, and this year at Adobe Destinations, we are making sure your holiday getaway is exactly what you pictured it to be. Enjoy a luxury vacation rental for Thanksgiving; our homes offer full kitchens and plenty of space for enjoying festivities with friends and family!

Can you peruse our website to find your ideal vacation rental, here. We look forward to accommodating your visit, and we hope to see you in the upcoming months!

Springtime in Santa Fe

While we love winter in Santa Fe – there’s nothing quite like the feeling of renewal during Springtime. The sun comes out and warms up the adobe and everyone wants to be outside soaking it all up. There’s no bad time to visit Santa Fe, but Springtime is probably our favorite. The weather this time of year is, we think, perfect – with temperatures hovering around 65-70º fahrenheit and sunny most days. The most you’ll need to bring is a light sweater if you’re going out for dinner!

There’s no shortage of activities and events going on this time of year, so come prepared to satisfy all the senses!


One event not to miss, and runs through the summer is the Santa Fe Artists Market opens back up on the Railyard in downtown Santa Fe on Saturdays from April -November, with juried selections from a wide variety of artists. It’s also right next to the Farmers Market, so come with your walking shoes on!

The month of May is jam-packed with events every weekend for every interest. History buff? Check out the Civil War reenactment. Art Lover? Don’t miss the Eldorado Studio Tour. Love beer and/or bikes? The new Bike & Brew Festival is a great way to experience some new craft beer and enjoy the beautiful scenery Santa Fe has to offer on two wheels!

No matter where your interests lie, you will find something worthy of a trip to Santa Fe – and while you’re here you don’t even have to worry about spring cleaning! Each of our properties is professionally maintained between visitors, so you know every dust bunny and cobweb will be taken care of! Here are some of our featured properties for springtime, that have outdoor living spaces.
