Barbara Harrelson, a former Smithsonian museum docent and local writer, takes you on a 2-hour literary walking tour of downtown, exploring the history, legends, characters, and authors of the region through its landmarks and historic sites. It's a great way to absorb the unique character of Santa Fe. Tours take place by appointment. Harrelson's book, Walks in Literary Santa Fe: A Guide to Landmarks, Legends, and Lore ($12.95, Gibbs Smith) allows for self-guided tours and is available in local bookstores and online.
