    Will santa fe take me off route to vegas?
    Not much. It only takes an hour to get from Clines Corners (on I-40) to Santa Fe via US Hwy. 285, and the drive back down to Albuquerque on I-25 is the same – one hour. All you’re looking at is an extra 50 miles.

    Going in August.
    Santa Fe gets pretty crowded during the summer, especially during big events like the Indian Market, which is being held Aug. 23-24 this year. It would be a good idea to make hotel reservations as far in advance as possible.

  3. Default You can't go wrong.

    In my opinion, you can't go wrong with either one, but I would lean more toward Santa Fe. If you choose Albuquerque, try to stay near the old town area. Lots of neat restaurants and shops. One thing you might want to consider is altitude sickness. Since you are from Memphis (I'm assuming here) and so am I, I did experience altitude sickness in Santa Fe but not Albuquerque.

    I doubt you would be disappointed in either area. We loved both of them.
