When it comes to getting the most out of your vacation, it's good to keep in mind that Pecos is merely just the start; North Central New Mexico is home to a treasure-trove of fabulous things to see and do. Pay a visit to the Lensic Theater and Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, some 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the southeast of Pecos.
Taos, is another good place to explore. It is approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) from Pecos and offers a diverse range of points of interest, like Taos Plaza Theater and Arts Center, Taos Pueblo and Taos Ski Valley. Taos Art Museum, Bent Gallery and Museum and Kit Carson Home and Museum are also good places to head to.
Feed your mind by visiting North Central New Mexico's thought-provoking art museums and art galleries.
Don't leave here without seeing it from a completely new perspective. There are a number of great options for hot air ballooning. Why not have a go at some wintersports while you are in this interesting region? Snowboarding is a good option. So is skiing.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time go home, head to the nearest major airport in Santa Fe, 25 miles (40 kilometers) away.
