A haven for free spirits, art lovers and adventurers

An ancient city, shaped by diverse cultures, Santa Fe is one of the most interesting places to visit on earth. Also known as the Land of Enchantment, its natural beauty has long been a haven for artists and writers who have transformed Santa Fe into a creative mecca. Wander through the historic district of New Mexico’s capital city, and marvel at adobe style architecture. Revel in the art galleries, restaurants and markets that cram our colorful streets. Beyond the city, adventure calls as the Sangre de Cristo Mountains beckon to hike the hills and bike the trails. In winter Santa Fe, New Mexico offers the best powder snow trails to ski in the Southwest.
