Description: The Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe is located in the heart of downtown Santa Fe, adjacent to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis de Assisi. In the 1910s, a portion of the property was a dormitory for the Sisters of Charity. The primary façade is from the 1950's St. Vincent's Hospital, designed by John Gaw Meem, and is an excellent example of late Territorial Revival style. The hospital remained in the building until 1977; after that, the structure housed offices, as well as being used for movie sets. The new 182-room hotel features all of the renowned amenities of Drury Hotels, as well as modern, spacious, light-filled rooms with magnificent views of Santa Fe skies. A rooftop pool provides more breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. There is a restaurant on premises, and Santa Fe's famous Plaza area is but steps away. The fully renovated buildings are steeped in history, and surrounded by a pedestrian oasis - all in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico.

After a short break, we'll then walk 3 blocks to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. The O'Keeffe Museum, while not large, is a "must see" destination for many Santa Fe visitors, featuring Ms. O'Keeffe's paintings as well as works by other artists in changing exhibits.

Day Four: Thursday, April 30 - Field Trips to Chimayó, Pojoaque and Santa Clara ...
Field Trips to Chimayó, Pojoaque and Santa Clara Pueblo / Lunch at Rancho de Chimayó

Note: Getting on and off bus; walking up to several blocks over varied terrain with inclines; standing for up to an hour at museum, Santuario, and pottery studio.

Breakfast: At the hotel

Morning: We'll board our motorcoach in front of the hotel and depart for the village of Chimayó where we'll visit the Santuario de Chimayó, famous for the reputed healing powers of its "holy dirt." The Santuario offers some remarkable folk art, from its beautiful retablos, stations of the cross, and bultos (statues of the saints). This little church is an interesting example of the enduring faith of many residents of the small Hispanic villages in the area.

We'll also visit a weaving gallery where we can see some examples of beautiful Hispanic textiles created by an award-winning weaver. Incorporating different patterns and techniques from those of Native Americans, weavings like these have been produced by generations of local families.

Lunch: We'll have lunch at historic Rancho de Chimayó, a charming restaurant housed in an old hacienda.

Chimayó is known for its heirloom chiles, the fruit of the Capsicum plant. Most traditional New Mexican dishes are prepared with red or green chile. (New Mexico's official state question is "Red or green?" If you'd like to try both, order "Christmas!")

Our group will have a plated meal, ordering from a special menu featuring traditional New Mexican cuisine, with chips, salsa, and a non-alcoholic beverage.

Afternoon: We'll depart for a field trip to Pojoaque, NM, where we'll visit the Poeh Museum to expand our knowledge of the Pueblo people's art, history, and culture

We'll then go to Santa Clara Pueblo for a visit to the pottery studio of Paul Speckled Rock.

One of the most welcoming pueblos of northern New Mexico, Santa Clara is known for its blackware and redware pottery, and Mr. Speckled Rock is a master of his craft. He and his wife, Rosalda, will talk about how he makes his pottery and about the families who are best known for their pottery.

Day Five: Friday, May 01 - Full-Day Trip to Taos
Note: Walking up to a mile over varied terrain; standing up to an hour at site visits

Breakfast: Buffet at the hotel

Morning: Our motorcoach departs for Taos after breakfast. On arrival in Taos, our first stop will be at the Harwood Museum of Art.

Founded in 1923 by Lucy Harwood and several members of the Taos Society of Artists, the Harwood Museum of Art is the second oldest museum in New Mexico. The museum has been affiliated with the University of New Mexico since 1935, and it now boasts the internationally acclaimed Agnes Martin Gallery, galleries exhibiting highlights from the museum's collection of work by the Taos Society of Artists, Taos Moderns, Hispanic Traditions, and contemporary artists working in Taos, and changing exhibitions fulfilling the Harwood's vision to "Bring Taos Arts to the World and World Arts to Taos."

We'll then go to the E.L. Blumenschein Home and Museum. The home of the artist Ernest Blumenschein, this museum is maintained much as it was when he and his family were alive. The home is filled with a superb collection of the Blumenschein family's art, a representative sampling of works by other famous Taos artists, fine European and Spanish Colonial style antiques, and the family's lifetime of personal possessions. The home beautifully illustrates the lifestyle of Taos artists in the first half of the twentieth century.

Lunch: This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy what you like. There are a number of restaurants in the vicinity of the Plaza; the Group Leader can offer suggestions and directions.

Afternoon: After lunch we'll have some free time to explore the Plaza and Bent Street area, then board our motorcoach and travel to Taos Pueblo.

This picturesque Pueblo at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains is one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in North America. The multiple-storied adobe dwellings reflect an ancient culture. Approximately 100 Pueblo residents still live much as their ancestors did 1,000 years ago, without electricity or running water. Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark.

We depart for Santa Fe following the Pueblo visit, with a brief stop for a photo opportunity (exterior only) at San Francisco de Asís mission church. Located in the historic district of Ranchos de Taos, this Spanish Colonial adobe building is one of the best known and most photographed churches in New Mexico.

Dinner: At a selected restaurant on the way back to Santa Fe
