Top city spots in Santa Fe, USA

Santa Fe has magical sunsets, beautiful landscapes, an incredible cultural legacy, and an art form for everyone. It even has great skiing if you visit in winter!

Settled at the foothills of Sangre de Cristo mountains in New Mexico, Santa Fe is an intriguing state capital and tourist destination. Referred to as ‘The City Different’ it offers visitors a wonderful blend of Anglo, Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultures - influences that can be enjoyed throughout Santa Fe’s amazing architecture, art, cuisine, music, and historical landmarks. The city is well known for being a creative hotbed and is hugely popular with art enthusiasts. To really appreciate why just take a short stroll down Canyon Road. This former trade route is now home to over 100 studios and galleries that sell sculpture, paintings, jewelry, and ceramics. Many of these venues are fascinating workshops showcasing artists at work. Two other creative neighborhoods that should be on your art-inspired tour are downtown Lincoln Avenue and Railyard District. Santa Fe also has world-class museums and venues including the Santa Fe Opera House, New Mexico Museum of Art, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. The latter is particularly interesting as it curates Native American art and culture and hosts performances of music, dance, and storytelling. The city's most captivating architecture can be found in Santa Fe’s Historic District. This lovely neighbourhood has picturesque lanes lined with low adobe buildings and atmospheric Spanish colonial churches. Near the centre you will find a traditional Spanish Plaza where local artisans sell art and crafts underneath the impressive Palace of the Governors. One of the best things to do during your stay in Santa Fe is to take a tour out into Northern New Mexico. The countryside is liberally dotted with wineries and artist studios, and you will also discover Native American pueblos. Finally, there are some great ski areas in New Mexico within a short distance of Santa Fe. One popular resort is Ski Fanta Fe located only 15 miles from the city that offers over 650 acres of skiing terrain. The resort has 7 lifts and offers equipment rentals and skinning lessons, and it can be reached via a handy shuttle bus service direct from downtown Santa Fe.
