Walk through hundreds of centuries of history on this short, easy hike in downtown Los Alamos, New Mexico. This walk takes place in the Los Alamos Creative District, a designated New Mexico Arts & Cultural District. The locals in Los Alamos say "Where Discoveries Are Made!" because Los Alamos is a place of ancient village sites, spectacular scenery, diverse wildlife, uncommon high-altitude recreational opportunities, small-town friendliness, world-class cultural activities, fascinating history, and world-changing science and technology development. The Historic Walking Tour gives you little (and sometimes big) slices of all of these things by taking a short, easy walk. There are many opportunities for side stops in museums, galleries, stores, and restaurants, so allow more time if you are the kind of person who likes to take their time and explore.

Great walking tour through a city with an amazing history. I stumbled upon this by accident and was thoroughly impressed by this “secret city“/“atomic city“! Definitely do this if you are in the Santa Fe/ Los Alamos area and make sure you hit the science Museum as well.
