Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside
With some homes dating back centuries, the Eastside neighborhoods include some of Santa Fe’s most famous adobe homes and gardens. A mix of multi-generational families and newcomers, the homes, often behind high walls and accessed by narrow, dirt roads, recall the city’s early history. Views are limited in this area of town where authenticity and atmosphere dominate.
Nestled into the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Canyon Road is a magical half-mile art destination in the Historic District of Santa Fe. Stroll the picturesque street to experience fine art galleries, great shopping, and exquisite dining. Upper Canyon Road has long-established residences and the Randall Davey Audubon Center, encompassing 135 acres and miles of hiking trails, a nature store, and the historic house of artist Randall Davey.
Old Santa Fe Trail/Museum Hill
Stretching from the heart of Santa Fe to Missouri, this historic westward route has carried thousands to the Southwest. Now, Old Santa Fe Trail is known for its fine adobe homes and newer architectural wonders. Around the ‘museum district (known to locals as “Museum Hill”), the Museum Of International Folk Art, The Museum Of Indian Arts and Culture, The Wheelwright Museum Of The American Indian are located and the surrounding neighborhood lots are dotted with piñon and juniper trees.
Restaurant Spotlight: The Teahouse
An awesome restaurant with great gluten-free options and light fare alongside lattes, dozens of hot and iced teas. Open daily | 9 am to 9 pm

New and Noteworthy: Thai on Canyon
Cathy is raving about Thai on Canyon. For now, the best thing you can do is call for hours and their menu. The restaurant’s Facebook page shows a lot of promise.
