Lighting on the Plaza
The beloved Holiday Lighting on the Plaza takes place, the way it has for years, on the day after Thanksgiving, with live entertainment on the Santa Fe Plaza starting at 4:30 p.m. As families and friends start to arrive, Girl Scouts serve cookies and hot chocolate and Santa and Mrs. Claus make their appearance on a vintage fire truck, greeted like royalty. When the dazzling light displays are turned on, they transform the Plaza into a magical wonderland.

Yurts At Hyde Memorial State Park
Connect with the heart of nature in Hyde Memorial State Park's ponderosa pine mountain forest, where three yurts provide a unique lodging experience that's rooted in an ancient nomadic tradition. Each yurt contains six single beds that can be grouped together in various configurations. Kick back in your outside activity area, with a fire ring, dining table and food safe, to keep the critters away. Vault toilets and water are just a short walk away.
Houses Of The Moon At Ten Thousand Waves
In the tradition of the Japanese ryokan, guests have a short walk from their rooms to the rustic spa, inspired by Japanese-style mountain hot spring resorts. The distinctive details in each of the 14 unique guest rooms and suites reflect Japanese simplicity, and many include courtyards, decks, a private Japanese garden and a kiva fireplace. Surrounded by 20 acres of piñons and junipers in high mountain wilderness, yet just ten minutes away from downtown Santa Fe, this is your choice for an easily accessible romantic vacation in an exotic destination.
