Designated scenic drives, New Mexico Vacation, Casa Escondida B&B


Griffin (the B&B cat) says…hit the road Jack! Did you know that New Mexico has 25 designated byways? You can experience many of these beautiful and fascinating drives while a guest at Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast. Casa Escondida is a Santa Fe area B&B, which is located in historic Chimayo, NM (just 35 minutes north of Santa Fe). Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast offers wonderful Santa Fe area accommodations.The designated byway program was created to enhance your travels on these roads. Perfect for your Santa Fe family vacation. When a road receives the “designated byway” title, this is based on offering one or more unique elements (archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational or scenic). Just a few miles west of Casa Escondida B&B, you can drive the 14 miles that make up the “Puye Cliffs Scenic Byway”. These cliff dwellings are also a National Historic Landmark. If you are headed north for the day, consider the “Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway”. This 84 mile loop goes through some of the most beautiful landscapes in northern New Mexico. The town of Jemez Springs is also a common daytrip from Casa Escondida B&B. The “Jemez Mountain Trail National Scenic Byway” is a 132 mile loop offering geologic formations, Pueblo ruins, wineries, alpine peaks and more. The “Santa Fe National Forest Scenic Byway” starts right in downtown Santa Fe! It is only 15 miles in length but offers an abundance of  natural beauty, history and culture. Casa Escondida B&B is located just off of the “High Road to Taos Scenic Byway”.  This is 52 miles of stunning natural beauty. But don’t just take Griffin’s word for it. Book your room and pack the car. Keep in mind that fall is just around the corner. During that time of year, the drives are even more spectacular due to the fabulous fall colors. Warm days, cool nights, blue skies and neon yellow Aspen and Cottonwood trees. Who could ask for more on your Santa Fe vacation? So when you wonder what new and wonderful things there are to do in Santa Fe, put the designated byways of New Mexico your list. Rambling along the back roads is a wonderful way to experience New Mexico. Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast is a delightful New Mexico retreat, which has rooms available year-round.
