Valentine's Day the Santa Fe Way

Valentine's Day the Santa Fe Way

February 01, 2019

There may still be a chill in the air, but it’s not hard this Valentine’s month to warm up with your loved one in the great outdoors. Heat things up from the start and set the tone for your day with a dip in one of the area’s many natural hot springs. Giggling Springs, first opened in the mid-1800s as a destination for stagecoach-weary soakers, keeps four pools fresh and ready right along the river for your therapeutic relaxation, courtesy of Mother Earth. For more of an adventure, hike out to Spence Hot Springs and slip in while you soak up your scenic surroundings. The relaxation continues in the rejuvenating environment of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. Let the flora set the scene for the Garden-sponsored Love is in the Air chocolate and wine tasting at Hervé Wine Bar. Led by master chocolatiers and featuring award-winning wine from local St. Clair Winery, spend the night with your sweetheart learning the intricacies of one of the most indulgent confections.
