Free admission days for New Mexico residents at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science? We like that!

New Mexico residents get in free to The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science on the first Sunday of every month.   So the next free admission day is this Sunday October 7, 2012.

In addition to all the displays including T-Rex Attack and Space Frontiers, and the Naturalist Center room for kids to see specimens and go ‘hands-on’ with exhibits, this Sunday is Meet The Expert Day at the museum. From 11 am – 3 pm you can get behind-the-scenes insights from curators and staff, in the museum atrium. The last I heard, the robotic dinosaurs are also staying on at the museum until October 14.

The free admission day saves $7 per adult (aged 13-59) and $4 for kids (aged 3-12) on the usual ticket price.

To get free admission on the first Sunday of the month, take your New Mexico ID. Even with the freebie, you have to pay regular admission if you want to go in to the Lockheed Martin DynaTheater or the Planetarium.

Discount Golf for NM Residents on Santa Fe Trail Courses

February 18, 2012 by  
Filed under Sport & Leisure

Comments Off

New Mexico golf courses are beautiful to play, especially when you’re saving dollars on green fees!  New Mexico residents can get a great deal on New Mexico golf that works out to just $25 per round including top notch courses like Paa-Ko Ridge, Twin Warriors, and UNM Championship. The offer is only for New Mexico residents.

This twilight golf pass gives a discount on Golf on the Santa Fe Trail courses, letting you play all eight for just $200. That’s 25 bucks per round, a very low par for these courses, saving over $150.

Twilight hours start at 2 pm, allowing plenty of time for a relaxed game, and the pass can be used Monday to Thursday. The pass is valid for one year from purchase date, to play all the Santa Fe Trail golf courses once each – see the trail map at the link. Six are around Albuquerque, the other two are north of Santa Fe:

  • Paa-Ko Ridge
  • Twin Warriors
  • Sandia
  • UNM Championship
  • Santa Ana
  • Isleta Eagle
  • Black Mesa
  • Towa

They say pass numbers are limited, although some form of this pass deal has been ongoing for a while now.  Still, golfers who want to try all these excellent area courses will stumble on their soft spikes to snap this one up.

To summarize the very fair deal conditions for the discounted Golf on the Santa Fe Trail pass:

  • You must be a New Mexico resident and can play each course only once
  • The pass can be used Monday to Thursday for tee times starting from 2 pm
  • Book tee times up to seven days in advance, for groups of no more than four players
  • The pass is good for a year from date of purchase

If you don’t play yourself, this could make a good gift for the golfer in your life. Buy the discount golf pass online.

If you’re not a New Mexico resident or if you’re taking an out-of-state guest, regular green fees are still very competitive (especially compared to other national courses of similar quality) at all the Golf on the Santa Fe Trail courses.

Ten Thousand Waves spa in Santa Fe celebrates its 31st anniversary this month, with some 31% discounts valid through February 29, 2012.

Ten Thousand Waves Spa discount:  Get 31% off any private baths, facials, massage, and spa treatments when you book 3 or more hours of “a la carte” services on Monday to Thursday. The services must all be booked on a single day and you get 31% off the total, excluding the blackout date of February 20.  You need the Ten Thousand Waves coupon to get the discount spa deal.  That’s nearly a third off – a pretty awesome deal!

If you’d rather book one of the Ten Thousand Waves ready-made spa packages instead of choosing your own services, the packages are already discounted but they’re giving an extra 21% discount through February 29.  Again, take the  Ten Thousand Waves coupon.

Ten Thousand Waves Lodging Discount Get 31% off the second night and all subsequent nights when you pay the regular price for the first night’s stay, in an offer valid on Mondays through Thursdays. Subsequent nights must be of equal or lesser value to get the discount and blackout date is February 20. No coupon is needed for the lodging discount.

These deals are all valid through the month of February 2012 – and you need to book in advance.

Ten Thousand Waves is located at 3451 Hyde Park Road, Santa Fe. Allow an hour and 15 minutes for the drive north of Albuquerque via 1-25.
