Santa Fe travel businesses

Located at 7,000 feet in the foothills of the southern Rocky Mountains, Santa Fe, the oldest capital city in the United States, is known as a “city different” for many reasons. Home to a unique blend of cultures, Santa Fe was the first US city to be designated a “creative city” by UNESCO and is one of only nine worldwide. With 300 days of sunshine a year, a variety of food, art, and cultural festivals throughout the year it is always a great time to visit Santa Fe.

As one of the first cities in the United States, Santa Fe is steeped with a rich history that is visible on every street corner. From Native American ruins to the oldest church in the country, history buffs and family adventurers alike will be drawn to the cultural heritage of this historic area. Visit some of the 19 Native American Pueblos, the old mining towns revived by contemporary artists, or a high mountain Spanish colonial village. In the heart of downtown, on Museum Hill and throughout the city, visit one of the 12 plus museums and explore New Mexico’s history, Native American art, Spanish history, contemporary art and more. There is something for every age and interest.

Santa Fe offers more than just an artistic and cultural feast for visitors. Just minutes from downtown, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains offer miles of trails for hiking and biking through forests of pinon, juniper, and ponderosa trees and meadows of colorful and vibrant wildflowers. The city is located close to two major rivers ideal for rafting and kayaking for those seeking a thrilling ride or a peaceful and scenic float.

At the end of the day, enjoy a delicious meal, stunning sunset and exciting nightlife in Santa Fe’s vibrant downtown area. For a creative, delicious, and engaging vacation, Santa Fe is the ideal destination.
