Many of Santa Fe’s most notable landmarks and museums are situated near the historic Santa Fe Plaza, and make for a pleasant self-guided walking tour. Begin at the New Mexico History Museum, where you can learn about Santa Fe’s origins and get tips and advice from staff on where to visit next. Several organized tours are available as well. Loretto Line Tour Company takes passengers to Santa Fe’s most iconic sites, including the landmarks on the Plaza, Canyon Road and Museum Hill, in open-air trolleys. Several guided walking tours are available, such as the 2.5-hour Santa Fe Detours walking tour that concentrates on the Plaza area. For the strong-hearted, Historic Walks of Santa Fe’s Ghostwalkers tour visits sites that have ghost stories attached to their histories, such as Julia Stabb’s supposedly haunted room at La Posada de Santa Fe.
