Ever since Adam and Eve, gardens have been places for romance. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden on Camino Lejo (Museum Hill), is a romantic setting for lovers. The Orchard Garden, opened in July 2013, has romantic spots throughout. Bring a picnic lunch with you. Pick a romantic spot on one of the benches scattered throughout and feed each other tasty morsels. Enjoy the profusion of colorful plants that thrive in the arid high desert gardens. There's even a drought tolerant version of a romantic English Garden here. Hold hands as you walk across the old bridge that was brought to the site from Las Vegas, New Mexico. Want to pop the age-old question? The Rose Ramada is the perfect place. The garden, with perfect west-facing views can also host a glorious sunset wedding (or engagement or anniversary party).
