Welcome to Santa Fe, New Mexico!
Translated from Spanish, The City of Holy Faith is located in the Land of Enchantment - New Mexico
If this is your first time to Santa Fe, hold on! You are in for the treat of your lifetime. Santa Fe was selected as the number 3 destination in the United States by readers of Conde Nast Magazine - consistently hanging on to its top ten ratings throughout the years and is also one of the 3 top art markets in the country.
Crisp mountain air, dazzling blue skies, simple adobe architecture and magnificent mountain scenery blend together to earn Santa Fe the nickname The City Different.
Santa Fe sits at 7,000 ft. This high altitude means that we enjoy all 4 seasons, a fact that many first time visitors find surprising. When planning your visit, remember to pack for the season. In the springtime, take advantage of spring run-off to go rafting, summertime is perfect for hikes into the surrounding wilderness areas, fall is known for chili harvests and Fiestas and in the winter, one has a selection of world class skiing. Because of our altitude, we enjoy light, dry, champagne powder.
Not into sports and the outdoors? Have no fear. Santa Fe is a world class destination that is amazingly cosmopolitan for a city of its size. Enjoy our famous opera, 200 plus galleries, over 200 restaurants serving up just about any kind of food you yearn for and a tri-cultural heritage comprised of Native Americans, Hispanics and Anglo Americans. This tri-cultural heritage is truly what makes Santa Fe a unique place to live and explore as these three cultures have done a great job of blending and respecting one another. In fact, it is the diversity of our people that keeps many of our residents here.
