Description

Claiming to be the most exotic city in North America, Santa Fe is cultured and diverse. Spanish and Native American influences make for fascinating food, art and entertainment with a rich heritage evident all over town. While the food stands out, Santa Fe has so much more in store.

Santa Fe’s food focuses on the local staple—chile—and visitors should prepare to answer red or green? You can’t miss the New Mexican, Southwestern offerings, but the town has every other cuisine imaginable. Our team was thrilled with The Pantry, Maria’s, Marble Brewery, Rooftop Pizzeria and Coyote Café on their visit.

With the third largest art market in the U.S., Santa Fe boasts hundreds of art galleries, a variety of museums, opera and trademark architecture. View Pueblo and Greek-revival styles in protected historic districts, browse a gallery or attend one of several annual art markets, and take in the performing arts whether theater, dance or music. The town offers a dozen museums, four concentrated on Museum Hill near shopping and dining as well.

Outdoor recreation is a must in a destination that promises 300 sunny days each year. Hike, bike or swim in the summer and ski or ice skate in the winter. Families can choose between horseback riding, rafting, fishing or even riding a hot air balloon over the beautiful view in the valley below the Rocky Mountains. There’s even more to see and do discussed in Santa Fe’s reviews.

More top flight restaurants per capita than any town it's size or larger, it's also among the most beautiful as well as most friendly.

I'm lucky to have grown up in what I think is the most beautiful, unique, and diverse town in America. Also, you can't beat the amazing clean air here! Santa Fe is a definite winner in my book.
