Earth USA 2017 - Travel Help

Earth USA 2017 is being held in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the Alhambra Theater of the Santa Fe Scottish Rite Center (463 PASEO DE PERALTA SANTA FE, NM 87504).

Arriving by Plane

Santa Fe has a small Municipal Airport with limited domestic service. The nearest international airport is the Albuquerque International Sunport. Once you land in Albuquerque, you can take a free bus from the airport (Bus Route 250) to the Downtown Albuquerque Rail Runner Station where you can catch the Northbound Rail Runner train to the Santa Fe Downtown Depot. Alternatively, you can take the Sandia Shuttle Express directly from the airport in Albuquerque to Santa Fe. The shuttle drops passengers off at most major Santa Fe hotels. You can also rent a car at the Albuquerque International Sunport Car Rental Center and drive to Santa Fe (about a one-hour drive).

Arriving by Train

Amtrak has service to Santa Fe along the Southwest Chief Line (Chicago - Los Angeles - Chicago). The Amtrak station stop for Santa Fe is in Lamy, New Mexico. From Lamy, there is a shuttle bus which takes you to downtown Santa Fe.

Earth USA 2017 - Lodging Help

Since the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is happening around the same time as the conference (and many balloon fiesta guests also look for lodging in Santa Fe), early hotel reservations for Earth USA 2017 are strongly recommended. We suggest reserving a hotel room as soon as possible. The Santa Fe Scottish Rite Center (the conference venue) is located in downtown Santa Fe at 463 PASEO DE PERALTA. There are many good hotels within walking and short driving distance of the conference venue.

Santa Fe also has a very active Airbnb vacation rental community which you might want to search first. Many of the downtown home listings are true adobes!
