(This is the last one, I promise. So be sure you've caught up on parts 1, 2, and 3 first.)
Our day in Santa Fe was coming to a close. But there's no way I was going all the way up to Santa Fe by train and not stopping by the Flying Star Cafe. You guys know how much I love FSC. I've been to every Albuquerque location. Now I've scratched Santa Fe off my list. The only one left is the Bernalillo site.
We stopped in with just enough time for some coffee and dessert before our train was scheduled to leave the station.
It was the perfect way to cap off a day in Santa Fe. Of course, our day wasn't quite over. There was still the two-hour commute back southward to Albuquerque. Luckily, the Rail Runner is a very comfortable ride and so we were able to rest most of the way back.
I highly recommend you plan a day trip on the Rail Runner sometime. Check out their website for details on rates. There are quite a few opportunities for discounted rates and children under 9 are free. So grab the kids, take a friend, or just head out on your own. Stop by the Flying Star Cafe right across from the Santa Fe Depot or head down to the Plaza to eat. Either way, it's a fun little adventure and an affordable escape from the city limits.

Now that I've shared my RR experience, how about you guys? Have you take then train to/from Santa Fe? Does this make you want to go if you haven't? Leave your comments below!
