Welcome to Santa Fe, NM

On a plateau at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains—at an elevation of 7,000 feet—Santa Fe is brimming with reminders of nearly four centuries of Spanish and Mexican rule, and of the Pueblo cultures that have been here for hundreds more. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.

Things You Can't Miss

Samantha's Pick A City of Beautiful Hikes

My favorite is the Aspen Vista — a moderate hike through a forest of luminescent aspen that makes you feel like you’re walking through a Klimt painting.

Samantha's Pick Down Mexico Way

I’ve been going to Maria’s for mouthwatering Mexican food and blue corn enchiladas for 15 years. I probably should try other places, but I don’t.

Samantha's Pick Where to Stay

If you stay just outside the historic center (like two blocks) the room rates are considerably cheaper than at the center’s big-name hotels.

Get Outdoors at Nambé Falls

Make the short hike to Nambé Falls and see what is a great natural wonder of the southwest. There are picnic facilities, too, for lunch with a view.

See the Newish New Mexico Museum of Art

From the outside, this art museum seems a lot older than it actually is, thanks to its striking Pueblo Revival design. Go inside, and see the collection.

All Aboard the Railyard Park and Plaza

What do you do with a decaying, but still in use rail yard? You turn it into a 10-acre urban park, of course! Visit Santa Fe's newest communal space.

Live the Dream at The Bishop’s Lodge

If your vision of New Mexico is all-horseback riding and stargazing, The Bishop’s Lodge is the place for you. This 450-acre retreat is as idyllic as it gets.

Be Taken Back with St. Francis Cathedral

Step out of present-day Santa Fe and into Medieval Europe with a visit to St. Francis Cathedral. This beautiful Romanesque building dates back to 1869.
