Where should we go? (Opinions Requested Please!)

Recently, Lee and I have been talking about taking a long weekend in January after the holidays end.  We haven’t taken a trip by ourselves in two years so I’m looking forward to getting away from the distractions of home…Santa Fe, NM and Palm Springs, CA are our top choices right now because of Jetsetter deals, and inexpensive Southwest flights.

Have you been to either?  I’d love recommendations and your thoughts!!  Lodging and flights costs about the same so here’s some of my preliminary thinking…

Santa Fe, NM (Pros)

Palm Springs, CA (Pros)

Easy to get to Better weather
Could be cold and snowy Could be boring?? Not sure I’ve never been…
Great culture – museums, art galleries, restaurants Golf (for Lee), potential sunning and the hotel promises good cocktails!

Here are some beautiful pictures from both cities!

Palm Springs (The Parker isn’t a hotel option, but I definitely want to stop by and see Johnathan Adler’s work as shown below)

Hope you’re having a good week so far!


  1. Hey Sar - not that I've ever been there, but I did see this special deal on and they had a deal in Palm Springs for the Miramonte Resort & Spa that I almost bought. It looked pretty awesome. Just an idea! =)

  2. Thanks Skooz - that's a great idea!!!

    PS: I want to blog about your Xmas card - do you have an electronic copy?

  3. Santa Fe!!!! I am trying to get Reid to commit to a long weekend there soon too. I was only there for a day and a half, but it is magical (in the non-cheesy kind of way). Let me know what you decide.

  4. I would vote for Santa Fe! I love that city and I can only imagine its beautiful in December! A great break from Houston "60 degree winter" :)

  5. Thanks everyone for the comments! SO, we actually are going to Playa Mujeres instead :). Lee really wanted to play golf, so Santa Fe probably wouldn't have worked out for that in December, but I still want to go another time. Happy holidays!
