Roswell jokes aside, the state of New Mex­ico is in­deed one of the top stargaz­ing lo­ca­tions on US soil, and the best des­ti­na­tion to start within the ter­ri­tory would be its cap­i­tal city Santa Fe. With count­less as­tron­omy clubs avail­able in ev­ery cor­ner, such as the El Valle Astronomers and As­tron­omy Ad­ven­tures, stargaz­ing is eas­ily a pas­sion­ate group af­fair. Lo­cals and tourists from all walks of life would drive to and gather at dry plains out­side the city, set up their tele­scopes, and en­joy the stars to­gether. Once all is said and done, one can head over to Ho­tel St. Fran­cis on Santa Fe’s Don Gas­par Av­enue for a post-ac­tiv­ity re­treat. The her­itage site, with its rus­tic Fran­cis­can in­te­ri­ors, is def­i­nitely one

unique set­ting in which to end your night in town.

A pop­u­lar base for stargaz­ing, Taos is only an hour’s drive away from the city cen­tre
