Cerrillos Road stretches all the way from downtown Santa Fe to the I-25. It’s chock-a-block with stores and chain restaurants and hotels. It might be convenient for those making a quick stop in the area, or on a shopping spree, but it lacks the historic charm of Santa Fe proper, and there are no attractions within walking distance. However, it’s actually a short drive from the city center, and provides easy access to the neighboring national parks, and Albuquerque.
It takes about 12 minutes to drive the length of Cerrillos Road, so choosing the exact area to stay is not really important. However, you will find interesting dining options in the area around Rodeo and Zafarano drives. Head north to the intersection of South St Francis Drive and Cerrillos Road for proximity to downtown Santa Fe.
