Off Season Travel: Springtime in New Mexico

SANTA FE, NM--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Santa Fe, New Mexico enchants visitors with its rich heritage, and stunning setting. With over 300 days of sunshine every year, there is no one best time for visiting Santa Fe. But while most visit during the summer, a superb off season travel experience awaits those who go in spring. It's just one of many suggestions for off season travel in our new infographic.

April's daytime temperatures in Santa Fe average in the mid-60s, so visitors can comfortably meander through the famous Artists' Market, one of the largest in the country. The selection of Southwestern art is among the best, and other media and styles abound, as well. Without all the clamor and commotion of the summer crowds, one can slow down to leisurely absorb the quality of the art.

At 7,000 feet, Santa Fe's brisk mountain air rejuvenates visitors who opt for a stroll among historic buildings or a visit to nearby Native American pueblos. Depending on the snowfall, skiers might be able to catch the end of the ski season at local trails just 16 miles from downtown. And there's no better way to conclude a day in this 400-year-old town than with the finest and newest interpretations of Southwestern cuisine.

Those willing to go to popular destinations during the off season are rewarded with being able to thoroughly absorb the local ambience, which can be overwhelmed by the din of high season crowds. Santa Fe in spring is no exception. Looking for other spring destinations? Charleston, South Carolina is another favorite for those willing to vacation off season.
