COLLECTORS' HOMES
These days, collections often run to investment portfolios or trophy-hunting accumulations of this season’s must-have objects. However, we will be visiting the homes of at least three dedicated arts supporters, who are connoisseurs, in the old fashioned, admirable sense of the word. 

LOCAL CULTURE
At the Nambe Pueblo, we will visit the home of a well-known potter. Time on our own allows us to explore the Museum of International Folk Art, Spanish Colonial Museum, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture or The Wheelwright Museum. We spend time at the home and studio of Georgia O'Keeffe and see the landscapes that inspired her famous paintings. 

UNIQUE CULINARY EXPERIENCES
Experience award-winning restaurants that are the cornerstone of the culinary landscape in Santa Fe and learn about the architectural background of some of these striking spaces.
