I’ve been to quite a few visitor centers where the staff were less than helpful or ill-tempered. Also they can be too crowded. This one right across the street from the capital was perfect. Elizabeth gave us excellent advice, the best of which was to park in the sometimes tow zone since legislature wasn’t in session. That way we could walk ten minutes to the plaza where parking is outrageous or impossible to find. Our car was there safe upon our return. Thanks!

I had called the Visitor Center a week before our trip and had a conversation with Elizabeth. Elizabeth was on duty when we stopped by on our Day One. We had a lot of questions answered in a clear, informative manner. And, we just had a nice general conversation with her about the area and other things. Great stop!

Waited just over an hour for the free shuttle to come pick us up where he'd let us off 2 hours prior. He never arrived. We called the number on the sign to ask if any more buses were running and were told he was 4 blocks away. We waited another 30 minutes. Still never showed. Ended up walking 3 miles back to the car. Not happy!!

This is a decent info center with brochures and maps and a clean bathroom. The staff was friendly but I did not get any insight into the "must see" locations in the area. As other people have mentioned, there is a huge parking lot available to the public when the legislature is not in session. This is a great benefit as Santa Fe is hard to drive in. Downtown is walking distance and there is also a bus during business hours. This location is not open on weekends but there is another branch downtown.

The huge parking lot by this Visitor Center, which stands across from the State Capitol, offers free parking in undesignated spaces when the legislature is not in session. We find this to be a nice money saver when visiting Santa Fe and a good way to avoid the city’s crowded streets in summer. In August, on our most recent visit, we learned that the Visitor Center no longer requires the vehicle to be registered in its guestbook. So we just simply parked and enjoyed the10-minute walk to the central and historic Santa Fe Plaza Downtown. This lot is also a possibility when having dinner in the area but a vehicle cannot be parked here overnight.

We always make a brief stop in the Center before heading off to shop, dine, visit museums or explore. I consider the staff here to be knowledgeable, pleasant and extremely helpful. Though the space is relatively small, it brims with brochures and maps, including one with a mini guide. Southwestern style benches offer seating, and there are clean restrooms. I have never seen more than a few visitors here.

A lovely rest area just outside the Center’s entrance holds much greenery plus benches and picnic tables. I sat there in the shade for a while on the hot summer day after reading a nearby informational sign about the Santa Fe Trail.

We stopped here before exploring Old Town Santa Fe. The staff is very friendly and provided walking maps and pointers. We left our car here since parking is ample and free. Walked right past Old San Miguel Church, then just visited all the attractions all around Old Town. It is within 10 mins walking

Since Old Town is congested and parking hard to come by, even with fee. This is a good alternative, if you enjoy walking anyway on a nice day.

You know you are going to need a bathroom when you first arrive in town. They have a big clean multi stall one. The staff can help you with all types of information plus and it is a big plus PARKING. You can leave your car in the lot and take the free shuttle to downtown. It is walkable and I did both. My first day I decided to drive up by the plaza and paid over $7 to park. The rest of my stay in Santa Fe I parked for free and used the money to buy more interesting things than a parking space.

Staying in Albuquerque for 3 nights, we planned a day in nearby Santa Fe. Our first stop was to the Visitor Center which happened to be located across from street from the Capitol Building and only a short distance to The Plaza.

The Visitor Center is clean, well stocked with many brochures, has clean rest rooms and a very polite and helpful staff. We asked about parking at The Plaza and the kind lady suggested that we sign the guest book, then we could park in their lot for free because we were there on official business. Then we could take their free shuttle to the Plaza. So we signed the guest book, parked, and took the free shuttle which let us off right next to The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

From there, we walked The Plaza and neighboring shops and attractions. Eventually, we ended up right back to the Visitor Center which just happened to be next to The Oldest Church! A great venture!
