About Santa Fe

Santa Fe is known as the City Different and within one visit, you will know why. Santa Fe embodies a rich history, melding Hispanic, Anglo and Native American cultures whose influences are apparent in everything from the architecture, the food, the art and on. Remember, we’re seated at an elevation of 7,000 feet, so come and partake of 320 sunny days per year.

Santa Fe has long been a center for arts and culture; Santa Fe ranks as the country’s third largest art market. You’ll find nearly 300 galleries and dealers to explore. Santa Fe has the 3rd largest State Museum system in the country featuring culture, history and traditions of this region and the world. With a backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the world-class Santa Fe Opera makes its home here and we want you to feel right at home here tooǃ

In recent years, Santa Fe has earned a stellar reputation with food-lovers just like you. We’ve got more than 200 restaurant choices ranging from our local New Mexican flavors to creative Southwestern cuisine to authentic world cuisines.

If exercise is what you crave, you can hike and bike year-round. Ski Santa Fe opens the slopes from Thanksgiving through Easter. From the great outdoors and open sky where you’ll enjoy white water river rafting, horseback riding, fly-fishing, or the nurturing of indoors, you’ll indulge in your favorite types of fitness classes around our gem of a city.
