Why Visit Santa Fe?
Santa Fe is the glittering jewel of the Southwest, a timeless refuge surrounded by the stark beauty of the high desert, the breathtaking Sangre de Cristo mountains, and the Santa Fe National Forest. Adobe neighborhoods congregate around the venerable Plaza that has served as the city's heart for hundreds of years.
Visitors from all over the world are drawn to events like the International Folk Market filled with hand-hammered turquoise jewelry and native earthenware. Outside of the many annual events in Santa Fe, art lovers flock to popular attractions like the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Saint Francis Cathedral, hundreds of art galleries at Canyon Road, and the captivating Meow Wolf. And don't forget to check out the Museum of International Folk Art for a trip around the world in just a few hours.
More than a dozen generations of poets, authors, artists, dreamers, and visionaries have made Santa Fe into a destination that is truly unique and endlessly enthralling. Experience centuries of culture in a single weekend or lose yourself for days on end in the enchanting beauty of the wilderness on your trip to The City Different.
We haven't forgotten about the food-lovers out there! From unique breakfast burritos at Tia Shopia's made with local red and green chiles to local chocolates at the famous Kakawa Chocolate House, there's no shortage of food options in town. Keep in mind that a lot of restaurants close earlier than you'd think. Be sure to check the hours when planning out your day!
