Travel Information:

Fly into Santa Fe (SAF)
Although Santa Fe has a municipal airport, it is relatively small and a bit far from the city. Only American Eagle Airlines has daily flights to/from (DFW) and (LAX). Roadrunner Shuttle Service meets all flights for transportation to hotels. Call 505-424-3367 for reservations.

Fly into Albuquerque (ABQ)
A practical alternative is to fly into Albuquerque Airport (ABQ) that has many direct flights + fares are lower than to Santa Fe. From ABQ, you can then take the newly completed "Rail Runner Express" train which runs from downtown Albuquerque to downtown Santa Fe approx every hour. The cost for the Rail Runner Express is $6 one way (and ASN is currently negotiating for a discounted rate) and takes about 90 minutes. Follow signs in the ABQ Airport for the complimentary Rail Runner shuttle that will drive you the 15 min. ride to the train station.
NOTE: Train does NOT run on Sundays.

Sandia Shuttle Express
Vans depart ABQ Airport every hour for Santa Fe hotels. Special group rate of $40 round-trip by telephone reservations only – call 888-775-5696 and mention "ASN Group"

Rental Car
All the car rental agencies are represented at the ABQ Airport (not Santa Fe). It is an easy 1 hour drive (63 miles). The overnight parking fees for Hilton are $15 and LaFonda $12 per day.

Things To Do In Santa Fe:

Galleries / Museums / Historic Plaza

Santa Fe:

Santa Fe, America’s oldest Capital City, is a high-altitude city, sitting 7,000 feet above sea level (with nearby mountains reaching 12,000). With distinctive adobe buildings, museums, over 200 galleries and numerous historic landmarks dating back to 1620, Santa Fe has a lot to offer everyone. For further information:
