Santa Fe Museums & Art:
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is really neat. It opened to the public in July 1997, eleven years after the death of the artist. O'Keeffe

The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian. Wheel Wright
And near by the Wheelwright is the International Folk Art Museum.

New Mexico Museum of Art. NMMoA
What's There. Collections

Museum of New Mexico: Four Museums in Santa Fe, the List. Museum/NM
Museum of NM

Visual art and galleries: There are many Galleries around town, especially the Plaza area. The town and the surrounding areas have a high concentration of artists. They have come over the decades to capture on canvas and in other media the natural beauty of the landscape, the flora and the fauna. Canyon Road/ETC

Handmade Indian art at the Portal of the Governor’s Palace. NativeAmerican

New Mexico State Capitol Building can be toured, kind of neat. Nick Named the "Round House". The Capitol is located at the corner of Old Santa Fe Trail and Paseo de Peralta. Tour

Bandelier National Monument would be a nice place to visit near Los Alamos and not far from Santa Fe. It was a pleasent campground when we stayed there as well.
Monument

The New Mexico Rail Runner Express, train service to Downtown Albuquerque and other communities. One could also go see the sights there via RailRunner .

As for food, I am not too familar with restaurants in Santa Fe, BUT we have enjoyed some very good food off of "push" carts or I should say street vendors around the Plaza. Not sure if they were actually a push cart or just carts of some kind if not just stands. It has been a while since we have gone. One item was corn on the cob, rosted. Also Bar-B-Que, if I remember correctly and some Mexican food as well.
I believe it is called Roque's Carnitas.

Campgrounds in the Area

I have not done this, but it could be cool to see: Santa Fe Opera. Nor have I ridden on the Santa Fe Southern Railway but it is something I may do.

East of Santa Fe, off I-25, Pecos Hist'l Park.

We were just there in April. So much more to do than in Albuquerque.

Have dinner at the Paris Cafe. It's just like a scene from an old Bogart movie. We loved it.

Also, you're close enough to Los Alamos. Stop in the museum and see the movie (free) on the Manhattan Project ( Atomic Bomb 1945). Also see all the artifacts there.

Have fun,

If you'll be there the weekend before Labor Day you can attend the 35th Annual Santa Fe Bluegrass & Old Time Music Festival at the Santa Fe County Fair Grounds. There's free dry camping.
