Best way to get around Albuquerque given constraints?

I'm trying to figure out the best way to get from Popejoy Hall to the airport after a Saturday matinee, but I will probably need to go to my hotel to pick up luggage on the way. I'd obviously like to do this without missing my flight. What would a local do if they didn't have a ride from someone they knew? [more inside]

What’s a tourist to do in Eastern New Mexico?

I’ll be in Carlsbad on Friday. I need to be in Albuquerque by Saturday afternoon. Can you recommend things to do or places to eat in between? We’ll already have seen White Sands National Park.

Taos, Santa Fe, thereabouts with small kids

Vaccinated parents of two small children planning a road trip from Austin in late May/early June. We narrowed the destination to Taos or Santa Fe or nearby because that seems to be the right mix of 1.) manageable driving distance with 2.)a change of scenery. Looking for ideas, tips, and links on recommended home base rentals. This is our first time taking a trip as a family of 4 and we don't know what we don't know. We have two boys: a very active toddler (2.5 years old) an infant (7 months). We are looking for spacious home base, preferably with outdoor space for the toddler to stretch his legs. We would like to be somewhere where we could do outdoor activities, grab food, be comfortable with kids, and avoid large crowds/tourist areas. Please share any guidance on how we can best structure a long car ride with kids, places you stayed that you would recommend, sights you visited that small kids may enjoy, and how to make the trip also feel somewhat like a vacation for the parents.

New Year's Eve in Santa Fe

Two thirtysomething women will be in Santa Fe for New Year's Eve. What should we do to ring in 2019? We'll be in town for three nights, including New Year's Eve. Our other plans for the trip include a lot of eating, a little drinking, walking around, art, Meow Wolf, and on the way home, Ojo Caliente. Any and all recommendations are welcome, but specifically, I'm trying to figure out where we should spend the evening of New Year's Eve. [more inside]

Lone Meow Wolf

I'm contemplating driving from Denver to Santa Fe in a few weeks to check out Meow Wolf by myself (as part of an extended Artist's Date/Artist's Way weekend, if it matters). Will I regret not going with my husband or someone I know? I feel silly asking this question, as I am perfectly capable of having a good time on my own, but I wonder how much of it is about experiencing/discussing/absorbing it WITH someone else?
