Santa Fe Railyard Arts District Food Tour

Get a taste of Santa Fe, and explore the Railyard Arts District by foot, on this guided walking tour. Follow your local guide through the neighborhood, learning about how the arrival of the railroad helped Santa Fe evolve. Stop at four restaurants, and establishments to sample local food, and drinks (included).

What to Expect
Meet at 1pm at the Santa Fe Railyard water tower. Over the course of the tour, you'll walk approximately a mile and a half while visiting two sit-down restaurants, a winery or distillery tasting room (depending on the day), and one additional food or drink establishment. 

This unique tour focuses on the up and coming Railyard District in Santa Fe. This is home of the new Santa Fe, and you'll get to meet many of the chefs, distillers and brewers that are shaping this area today. Home to one of the top weekly farmers markets in the country, the Railyard District is where the locals go.

What brings this tour to life is the stories behind the restaurants you'll get a chance to visit. You'll learn about how the railroad redefined the American Southwest, who Fred Harvey is and how his legacy lives on to this day. You'll also get to explore some of the hidden corners of Santa Fe, learning about how the city has evolved over the last century and where it is heading into the next one.

A few favorite stops on this tour are (you will stop at four only):
  • Joseph's of Santa Fe
  • Cafe Sonder
  • Santa Fe Spirits Downtown Tasting Room
  • State Capital Kitchen
  • La Choza New Mexican Restaurant
  • Vivac Winery
  • Second Street Brewery

Historical and cultural sights you will see include:
  • Santuario De Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe (church built in 1777)
  • Santa Fe Railyard Depot Building
  • SITE Contemporary Arts Museum
  • Gross, Kelly & Company historic warehouse building
  • Santa Fe Farmer's Market (Tuesday and Saturday tours only)
  • Historic ranchhouses and warehouses (including sites on National Register of Historic Places)

If your kids are adventurous eaters, then yes. The tour does make one stop at a local distillery - so I would contact the tour to see if they could accommodate for the younger children.

I would say no, but ask. Since this is a group tour and the restaurant arranged for a table to be set aside, you should check whether this is an option. Service dogs are acceptable without a doubt I would think.
