It’s easy to think you have to plan your family’s spring break destination based on whether you’re seeking culture, adventure, or just plain relaxation. Choose a flavor, pick the place accordingly, right? Think again.
This year, hotels throughout Santa Fe are opening their arms to families with kids 12 and under with a roster of appealing enticements, free nights in some hotels not least among them. Kids FreeFest Spring Break 2017, which runs from March through mid-April, is a citywide program through which numerous attractions and businesses offer special deals to families. That encompasses everything from museums to sports and adventure attractions to art classes to dining. There’s free admission for kids at the Museum of International Folk Art as well as at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum (1 free kid ticket with each paying adult), a free manicure for kids at the Spa at Loretto, chocolate-making workshops at Cacao Santa Fe, and a free third night when your family stays for two at Inn at Santa Fe. Of course, restaurants want in on the game, too. Eateries like the French bistro L’Oliver and the very kid-friendly Five Star Burgers have free meals for the offering.
That's just a small sampling of the selections which are sure to entertain the kids and have them talking about their next vacation as they get home. For more information on the dozens of deals, click here.
