Happy fall, everyone! My favorite season is underway and I am here to share another adventure from my home state with you all. If you have read any of my past blog posts about New Mexico, you know I love my state and love sharing things for you all to do if you happen to visit. Today, I am sharing an indoor activity surely to be on your list if visiting the Land of Enchantment, Meow Wolf!!
Meow Wolf, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico is a unique, immersive, art attraction unlike any I have ever seen. The House of Eternal Return is based on the premise, something has happened to a family inside a mysterious house and it’s your job to piece together clues to figure out what exactly took place. Visitors are encouraged to venture through the house of the family, and discover secret clues and passageways. There is no one way to explore this art attraction and goers will climb and crawl through many spaces, find hidden rooms and try and make sense of the attraction.
In my opinion, the best way to explore and enjoy Meow Wolf is to get lost, and not spend too much time worrying about clues to find or which way to go. Just take your time to explore every room. Some rooms you will run into more than once, others you will pass a few times before realizing there is some thing new to be seen or crawled through. Every room is different and the unknown really is a great part of enjoying Meow Wolf. Take your time, enjoy each room, sit in your favorite rooms a little longer and just take it all in.
+Getting to Santa Fe– Santa Fe is located 65 miles, about an hour drive, North of Albuquerque. You can easily make the day trip from Albuquerque or Taos or spend the evening in Santa Fe enjoying the city. If you do not have a car on your visit, riding the Rail Runner from Albuquerque to Santa Fe is also an option. Once you arrive at the Santa Fe Plaza (also a must do in Santa Fe) you will have to take a ride share to Meow Wolf, located few miles away.

+Things to consider– Meow Wolf in an indoor experience but it is important to keep in mind you will be crawling and climbing through tight spots, wearing appropriate attire will be helpful. There is a snack bar located on the premise serving food and cocktails to enjoy during your visit. There are also several restaurants within walking distance, which offer discounts to patrons of the exhibit for an alternative option. Lastly, Meow Wolf also is also known for the amazing concerts and events hosted at the venue throughout the year and worth attending if able during your visit.
+Other things to do while in Santa Fe– As mentioned earlier, while in Santa Fe, it is worth visiting the Santa Fe Plaza and the famous Santa Fe Cathedral. Here are a few ideas of events and attractions in and around the Santa Fe area to help you fully enjoy your visit to New Mexico. Visit Sunrise Springs Resort, take a drive to Tent Rocks or enjoy the World’s Longest Tramway.
