Wife and I are planning to visit Albuquerque, NM this May. We will rent a car, and be there for one week. Where should we go? We've never been to the region.

Things we're looking for:
Day hikes (2-4 hour hikes, no camping, no serious gear)
Small towns to explore for a afternoon or two
Good day trips, so we can drive somewhere in the morning, do stuff, then either stay overnight or come back to base camp.
Great local restaurants (food trucks, beloved holes in the wall, up to fine dining)
I'm assuming we'll be based in Santa Fe. I'd like to stay below $200/night, but would be willing to splurge for a night or two if there is something really great.
Thoughts? Ideas? Is May the right time of year to go to Santa Fe?
