SANTA FE, N.M. - It's fair to call me a chocoholic, but it wasn't until a trip to Santa Fe that I realized I'd never had the good stuff. What was supposed to be a casual late-December exploration of this New Mexican cultural hub wound up becoming a full-on chocolate extravaganza in which I dragged my husband, Jay, to a new exhibit, "New World Cuisine: The Histories of Chocolate, Mate y Más," at Santa Fe's Museum of International Folk Art, and...

"Oldest house," panted Robert Chavez, steering his pedicab past a 17th century adobe. "Oldest church," he added a moment later, nodding left toward the 17th century San Miguel Mission Church. Santa Fe - rich, tan, relentlessly artsy and frequently artificial - is really old, by American standards. The city turned 400 this year. When I visited recently, my mission wasn't really to chase after old buildings, odd galleries and new restaurants. I wanted a look at Santa Fe's newest downtown neighborhood, a once-blighted railroad zone whose revival is nearly complete.

Hyundai introduced the 2013 three-row Santa Fe crossover utility vehicle at the L.A. Auto Show Wednesday along with the Veloster C3 Roll Top, a California-themed concept car. The new six/seven-passenger Santa Fe will join Hyundai's two-row Santa Fe Sport, which went on sale in August. The newly announced Santa Fe is 8.5 inches longer and is also slightly taller and wider than the Santa Fe Sport. The three-row Santa Fe offers 1.9-inches of additional leg room for the vehicle's second row of seats -- which are available in captain's chairs if desired.

Santa Fe Sage Inn in New Mexico's capital offers a spring getaway for $74 a night plus tax. The inn is in a convenient location, too, within walking distance of the Santa Fe Artists Market at the Railyard each Saturday or a shuttle hop to downtown. The deal: I have written about this inn before because its prices are good in a city where you easily could spend a lot more. It's a basic motel-style building with a heated pool and inexpensive parking ($5 a night). Breakfast (waffles, pastries, bagels, yogurt, fruit, eggs, cereal and more)
