TOP 10 FRIENDLIEST CITY IN THE U.S. CONDÉ NAST TRAVELER

elcome to La Villa Real de la Santa Fé de San Francisco de Asis! ´ Fortunately our forebears shortened the name to Santa Fe, and along the way, Santa Fe also acquired an unusual nickname: the City Different. If this is your first time in Santa Fe, you’ll soon understand why: Santa Fe is unlike any other city in America. Santa Fe was the first designated UNESCO Creative City for craft and folk arts and design, and with its 250 galleries boasts the third largest art market in the country. Subsequently, plentiful unique shopping opportunities abound in town and when visiting the nearby eight northern Native American pueblos. With jaw-dropping 360-degree mountain views, more than 325 days of glorious sunshine a year, perfect sunsets, and 1.5 million acres of pristine national forest, Santa Fe is a naturally inspired setting for a retreat from the ordinary. As the country's oldest capital city at 406 years old, and with the highest elevation in the country at 7,000 feet, Santa Fe is the perfect place to start your own adventure. The Plaza, the epicenter of downtown Santa Fe, and the Palace of the Governors, known as the oldest continuously occupied government building in the United States, were built in 1609 and 1610, respectively. Native American artisans from some of New Mexico's 22 pueblos and tribes still sell jewelry beneath the Palace’s long portal, as they have for hundreds of years. But while history plays a major role in Santa Fe’s current persona (our unique blend of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo cultures influences everything from local architecture and art to jewelry and cuisine), there is a modern sophistication to Santa Fe that rivals any metropolitan city. Enjoy world-class entertainment at the Santa Fe Opera or dance to live music at the Plaza Bandstand, then sample from the City's 400+ restaurants. Internationally renowned chefs delight in elevating New Mexico’s favorite ingredient, chile, to new culinary heights. Santa Fe has been rated the number two small city to visit in the United States and one of the top U.S. destinations in the world for travel, romance, culture, art and food. There is so much to see and do; you’ll need (and want!) to come back again and again.

Plaza and Downtown History Meets Hospitality

CHRIS CORRIE

Back in the day (that would be more than 400 years ago), the Plaza­—originally a presidio, or fort—was the epicenter of Santa Fe life, government, and commerce. A defensive wall surrounded houses, the governor’s residence, and a garrison. Today the Plaza, still the epicenter of the city, has a considerably more friendly vibe, with fabulous museums, restaurants, art galleries, shops and the TOURISM Santa Fe Visitor Center lining the perimeter of the grassy park. Some of the city's oldest landmarks and hotels are located within blocks of the Plaza and Downtown, making this area the ideal place to immerse yourself in Santa Fe’s past and present.

Canyon Road Stunning Canyon Road has come a long way since its dirt trail days of centuries past. Now Santa Fe’s most famous street is an art lover’s mecca, with more than 100 art galleries showcasing contemporary sculpture and paintings, works by old masters and traditional Native American weaving, ceramics and jewelry. With its beautifully preserved and restored adobe and Territorial-style homes, Canyon Road is architecturally artful as well. The mile-long street is eminently walkable and distinctly Santa Fe, boasting the highest concentration of art galleries in the U.S. Several restaurants and cafés help you recharge before hitting the next amazing shop or gallery.

Southside

Shopping, Dining & Lodging A vibrant Southwestern history is alive in the Southside area. Cerrillos Road, stretching from the far southwestern edge of Santa Fe and ending almost at the Plaza, is Santa Fe’s very own piece of Route 66 (a 1937 realignment moved it south of Santa Fe). The Santa Fe Indian School, founded as a boarding school for Native American youth, is now the esteemed Institute of American Indian Arts, attended over the years by many notable modern Native artists. For urban outdoor enthusiasts, the Rail Trail winds through this part of town before heading south to Lamy. Love consignment shops? This area has several, along with retailers like Santa Fe Stoneworks, which offers beautiful knifeware and cutlery. Outstanding dining options include Second Street Brewery, Back Road Pizza and a wide assortment of fun food trucks, and there are plenty of family-friendly lodging options.

Once considered the south side of town, the area around Siler Road—the Midtown Innovation District—is trading its reputation as a gritty industrial area for that of a growing artistic hub. At the heart is Meow Wolf, an artist cooperative headquartered in the former Silva Lanes bowling alley. The group has partnered with Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin to open a multiuse art complex that includes a community workspace, a learning center and an interactive art installation. Duel Brewing, a Belgian-style brew pub, is nearby, as is Java Joe's coffee shop; Wise Fool New Mexico, a local circus troupe, has called the area home for several years; theater group Teatro Paraguas and The Adobe Rose Theatre, along with several art studios and galleries, make this a favorite destination for those seeking to experience the edgy side of Santa Fe.

Santa Feans have been making history for more than 400 years.

MARK KANE

Stroll along the Plaza and you’re walking in the footsteps of Santa Fe’s most colorful ancestors. A blend of Native American, Spanish and Anglo cultures, Santa Fe’s rich and fascinating history dates back to the arrival of nomadic Paleo-Indians in this region around 10,000 BC. Their descendants were the original settlers of the area and the architects of the adobe structures and Pueblo style that define Santa Fe’s distinctive look even today. Spanish explorers in search of gold first arrived in the Santa Fe area in the mid-16th century, eventually settling here and establishing Santa Fe as the capital of Nuevo México around 1610. Anglo settlers began making their way into the Santa Fe region around 1750, with thousands more pouring in following the creation of the Santa Fe Trail in 1821 and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway in 1878. In 1824, under Mexico, the Spanish province of Nuevo México became the Territory of New Mexico. But in 1846, the United States claimed possession of New Mexico, spurring the Mexican-American War. Two years later, with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico ceded nearly all of present-day California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico to the United States. New Mexico was admitted to the Union as the 47th state in 1912 and celebrated its centennial of statehood in 2012. The histories of both the state of New Mexico and its ancient capital city are rooted in the interaction between the area’s early settlers. Those interactions characterize Santa Fe even today, with the city’s diverse cultural history apparent in everything from the local art and architecture to the cuisine.

Fiestas, Festivals and Fetes

Santa Feans are social creatures, and our celebrations are legendary. Santa Fe even has a festival season that extends from May through October and includes more than 40 markets, festivals and shows. With dry, cool, sunny summers and autumns, can you blame us for wanting to set up shop outdoors? Check out SantaFe.org for an updated calendar of Santa Fe events. Some Santa Fe festival traditions are new—like the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, now in its ninth year. But many­—like Fiestas de Santa Fe, the oldest continuous community celebration in the United States­—have roots in the city’s earliest days. Other can’t-miss events in and around town include the Spanish Market, International Folk Art Market, Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta, and the worldrenowned Indian Market.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT

SANTA FE CULTURE?

LISA LAW

We still hold public burnings. Santa Feans annually purge themselves of their worries with the public burning of Zozobra (a.k.a. “Old Man Gloom”) kicking off Labor Day weekend. The 50-foot marionette moans and waves his arms in harmless fury while the onlooking crowds joyfully envision their troubles going up in flames with him. Viva Santa Fe!

Set your heart aglow with a visit to Santa Fe during the holidays. Farolitos light up rooftops and walkways across the city, spirits are bubbly and the city celebrates the joy of the season, Santa Fe style. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting over Thanksgiving weekend, head to the Plaza on Friday when the lights are turned on, marking the official kickoff to the holiday season. Las Posadas, which starts and ends at the Palace of the Governors, recreates the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph as they searched for shelter the night Jesus was born. On Christmas Eve, sip hot chocolate or cider and join thousands of others strolling down Canyon Road during the annual Farolito Walk.

Distinctive Style The three main styles of architecture in Santa Fe are Pueblo, Territorial, and Northern New Mexico. In the oldest parts of the city, new buildings, additions, and remodels must conform to one of the styles, which can be identified by the following features:

TOURISM SANTA FE

Pueblo – Inspired by Native American adobe buildings and Spanish

mud-brick churches, the Pueblo style features earth-colored stucco walls with an adobe-like appearance, rounded corners at intersections, brick flooring, rows of wooden vigas, and flat roofs drained by canales. Although historically mostly one-story, today’s Pueblo-style buildings are often multistoried. See this style when you visit the Palace of the Governors, La Fonda on the Plaza, and the New Mexico Museum of Art.

Territorial – The Territorial style is similar to the Pueblo style but features sharp-cornered walls, brick coping around the roofline, and wood-trimmed windows. See this style when you visit the Catron Building (northeast side of the Plaza), the Drury Plaza Hotel on San Francisco Street, and various homes on Canyon Road.

Museum of Contemporary Native Arts are all excellent educational visits. In Santa Fe, the history of Native American visual arts is best appreciated through exquisite historic artifacts, such as the pottery, sculpture, basketry, textiles, jewelry and more that can be found year-round at galleries such as Shiprock Santa Fe, Adobe Gallery and Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery. Look for contemporary examples of these traditional pieces, as well as paintings by contemporary Native artists, at Blue Rain Gallery and Niman Fine Art. Jewelry, hand-crafted by revered families of Native jewelers and coveted for centuries by collectors and aficionados, is everywhere in the City Different, from a simple pair of silver earrings sold by artisans beneath the portal of the Palace of the Governors to an elaborate squash blossom necklace or turquoise bracelet found at Sissel’s Fine Quality Indian Jewelry, Ortega’s on the Plaza and other retailers. Santa Fe takes its place on the map every August as the home of Indian Market, the largest American Indian art market in the country, and the Indigeneous Fine Art Market. Tens of thousands of visitors flood the city to take part in exhibitions and seminars, browse contemporary Native art, meet and purchase from the country’s top artists themselves and to see whose spectacular pieces will be named award winners.

orthern New Mexico’s rich Native American history and culture permeates every aspect of life in Santa Fe today, from our turquoise jewelry to our adobe homes. Predating Spanish explorers in this area by 15 centuries, ancestral tribes of hunter-gatherers lived in settlements around the Southwest over 2,000 years ago. Some of these tribes later joined together to create permanent settlements, or pueblos. As other groups began to explore and settle this area, Santa Fe’s unique Native, Spanish and Anglo “triculture” developed over centuries of often turbulent interaction. Strong and resilient, however, the Native nations of what is now New Mexico proudly endured, and today Santa Fe just as proudly celebrates its distinctive Native American heritage and presence through art, architecture, food and more. Twenty-two tribes and nations are represented in New Mexico, and eight pueblos are located in Northern New Mexico, just short drives from Santa Fe: Nambe, Ohkay Owingeh, Picuris, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Taos and Tesuque. Respectful guests are welcome to visit most of the pueblos to see ancient dwellings and observe certain feast day celebrations and other events significant to these sovereign nations.

Bursting with more than 250 fine-art galleries; standout museums; and up-close experiences like studio tours, live demonstrations and hands-on classes, Santa Fe is the third-largest art market in the country after New York and Los Angeles. The local art scene traces its roots to ancient Native American traditions, to the Spanish Colonial aesthetic that began more than 400 years ago, and to European and East Coast artists who settled here in the early 20th century. Today you can browse historic art-filled adobes along Canyon Road, wander warehouse-like exhibition spaces in the Railyard, catch thought-provoking shows Downtown or on Museum Hill, and visit a nearby Pueblo to experience traditional Native American art as it's being hand-crafted.

NATIONAL CENTER FOR ARTS RESEARCH

The historic heart of Santa Fe is a hub of fine-art activity. Two of the four museums that contain the Museum of New Mexico collection—the New Mexico History Museum and New Mexico Museum of Art—are at the Plaza, while nearby, 20th-century modernist painter Georgia O’Keeffe and her contemporaries are celebrated at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. Native American art takes center stage under the portal of the Palace of the Governors, where, every day, Native artists sell their handmade jewelry directly to the public. Native art also figures prominently at leading galleries like Niman Fine Art, Golden Dawn Gallery and The Russian Art Gallery, as well as museums like the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts—the only museum in the world that showcases the work of contemporary American Indian artists. The City of Santa Fe Community Gallery at the Community Convention Center exhibits and sells works by Santa Fe and New Mexico artists. South of the Plaza, the State Capitol’s Governor’s Gallery, part of the New Mexico Museum of Art, presents exhibits throughout the year featuring works by prominent present-day New Mexico artists. The building also contains the Capitol Art Collection, comprising almost 600 paintings, sculptures, textiles, glass works, ceramics, and mixed media pieces.

Canyon Road

The mile-long Canyon Road was designated a Residential Arts and Crafts Zone by the City in 1962. Authentic, historic adobe homes are now galleries specializing in Western, Native American, and contemporary art. Standout spots include Adobe Gallery, Canyon Road Contemporary, Gallery 901, Meyer Gallery, Wyland Gal26

The Railyard

Anchored by cutting-edge contemporary exhibition space SITE Santa Fe, which opened its doors in 1995, the Railyard has been luring forwardthinking artists and art enthusiasts for almost 20 years. The 50-acre neighborhood has seen an uptick in the number of visitors and leading galleries following the completion of a major renovation in the fall of 2008. Today, the Railyard, with its cafés, boutiques and farmers market, is a popular community gathering spot as well as a thriving art center. Visit the Railyard Visitors Center at the historic depot at 410 S Guadalupe.


Visual Arts Museum Hill

Situated southeast of downtown and accessible by the free Santa Fe Pick-Up Shuttle, Museum Hill offers four distinct art institutions. The Museum of Spanish Colonial Art and Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, both privately owned, are at opposite ends of the short drive. In between you’ll find the remaining constituents of the Museum of New Mexico: the Museum of International Folk Art, home to the world’s largest collection of traditional folk art from around the globe, and the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and Laboratory of Anthropology, which presents Native arts from the greater Southwest region with a focus on the ties between art and its historic and cultural contexts. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden, which covers more than 12 acres, hosts notable art exhibits and reflects the diversity of the Northern New Mexico landscape.

Public Art

More than 75 public art displays throughout town enhance the beauty of civic buildings, public parks, and Santa Fe’s transit system, thanks to a 1986 legislative act that requires New Mexico to set aside funds for acquiring or commissioning works by local artists. The public works on display represent the diversity of art found in Santa Fe, including the arching granite sculpture of 27 cutthroat trout by local artist Colette Hosmer titled Santa Fe Current, and Family by award-winning sculptor Roxanne Swentzell.

Art Workshops

Santa Fe continues to reinforce its designation as a UNESCO Creative City with a collection of interactive experiences designed to stimulate and educate visitors. Hands-on art classes from ceramics to photography and plein air painting are

We Know Shopping Having been the final stop along historic trading routes like the Santa Fe Trail and El Camino Real for centuries, it’s no surprise that Santa Fe is a major shopping destination. Family-owned shops and outfitters line the Plaza and dot the Railyard-Guadalupe district. Canyon Road bursts with galleries and boutiques, and museum shops have treasures to mark your visit. Annual events like Indian Market, Spanish Market, and the International Folk Art Market draw shopping-ready crowds from around the world, and major exhibitions, like the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian's Center for the Study of Southwestern Jewelry, inspire purchases of hand-crafted jewelry at many locations around town. One of the first sights you’ll see at the Plaza is dozens of Native American artisans selling their turquoise and silver under the portal of the Palace of the Governors. Nearby are Dressman’s Gifts, a long-standing gift store; Cutlery of Santa Fe, offering an impressive range of knifeware; Rocki Gorman, which sells Southwestern jewelry and clothes; and the Real Deal Collection, featuring new and gently used high-end handbags, luggage, and shoes. Look for the TOURISM Santa Fe Visitors Center in Plaza Galeria, which, like the Plaza Mercado, is a shopping center on the Plaza housing galleries, boutiques, sweets shops and rooftop restaurants. South of the Plaza, TIN-NEE-ANN Trading Co. sells Native American jewelry, Pendleton blankets, pottery, and local gifts. Canyon Road is one of the best spots in the world to buy art, fine leather goods, chic home furnishings and one-of-a-kind jewelry like that found at Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths. The DeVargas shopping center in the Guadalupe district is the go-to spot for home decor, cookware, sporting goods, designer apparel and more.

Just outside of town, en route from Santa Fe to Taos, Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante has been serving traditional and contemporary New Mexican cuisine for over half a century. The city’s top hotels offer elegant but accessible fine dining at places like Luminaria at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, Amaya at Hotel Santa Fe, Julia–A Spirited Restaurant at La Posada de Santa Fe, La Plazuela at La Fonda on the Plaza and izanami at Ten Thousand Waves.

BEST DESTINATION FOR OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS

SantaFe.org

One of Santa Fe's biggest draws is its spectacular scenery, and with that scenery comes unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation any time of the year. On Upper Canyon Road, the Randall Davey Audubon Center and the Nature Conservancy’s Santa Fe Canyon Preserve comprise 325 acres that rise through four eco-zones, from brushy cottonwood and willow to Ponderosa pine forest. The walking trails are popular with birdwatchers, who can spot some 140 species that nest on the land. More challenging routes into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are found within the Dale Ball trail system or Atalaya Mountain, where a seven-mile-round-trip trek leads hikers from a sandy arroyo to a rocky ridgetop with expansive views. Cyclists love the challenge of bike-friendly Santa Fe's roads and hills, and mountain bikers are welcome on most Dale Ball and Atalaya trails as well as the Chamisa and Borrego trails in the Santa Fe National Forest. Hyde Memorial State Park beckons hikers and campers with its extensive network of roadside trails and campgrounds for tent and RV camping. One of the best ways to navigate Santa Fe’s rugged terrain and take in its sweeping mountain views is on horseback. Guided tours and private rides are available through Broken Saddle Riding Company. For a bird’s-eye view of the stunning local scenery, hot air ballon rides are available locally through Santa Fe Balloons and in Albuquerque through Private Balloon Flights. Water babies, take heart: New Mexico may be landlocked, but there’s still wet-and-wild fun to be had. Enjoy swimming and boating at Heron, Abiquiú, Cochiti and Nambé lakes. For white water rafting, check out outfitters like Santa Fe Rafting and New Wave Rafting for their various excursions along the Rio Grande. At over 7,000 feet, Santa Fe’s mountain setting makes it an ideal destination for skiing. Ski Santa Fe has seven lifts, 74 trails, a snowsports school and a children’s center. With one of the highest elevations in the country, Ski Santa Fe is popular with snowboarders, too. As part of a winter day trip from Santa Fe, you can head two hours away to Taos Ski Valley, with its 110 trails and rare lift lines, or to Pajarito Mountain, which offers snowboarding, snowblading, and skiing. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular at Valles Caldera National Preserve and, back in town, along the Nordic and Aspen Vista Trails below Ski Santa Fe. Iceskating enthusiasts should head to the indoor rink at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center. If simply enjoying the scenery is more your thing, take a ride on the steam-operated Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, a National Historic Landmark. The 1880 train offers daily excursions between New Mexico and Colorado beginning around Memorial Day and lasting through October.

Outdoor Adventures Abound in Santa Fe


BOB WARD

There’s no reason to put your workout routine on hold while visiting Santa Fe. The city is home to nearly 100 parks with options including the walking paths in Frenchy’s Field or the 1,500-acre La Tierra Trails, popular with hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and BMXers. The Genoveva Chavez Community Center has a 50-meter pool, a gym, an indoor ice rink, an indoor track and spin, yoga, and kickboxing classes. Swim indoors at Salvador Perez Recreation Complex or, in the summer, outdoors at Bicentennial Park. Fort Marcy Recreation Complex has pools plus a gym, racquetball courts, a weight room, walking paths, and fields for softball and other sports. The Santa Fe area boasts seven golf courses including the public Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe and the semi-private courses at Quail Run Resort and the Santa Fe Country Club. Bring the family to Fort Marcy Park May through July to catch the independent professional Santa Fe Fuego play baseball at home. If you prefer to hit the ground running (literally), try a competitive race like the Santa Fe Thunder Half Marathon or a low-key fun run.

SPA AT LORETTO

For those looking to slow down and make quiet contact with their spirit, the Buddhist Upaya Zen Center offers daily meditation classes that are open to the public in addition to numerous retreats, workshops and weekly public talks. The serene campus alone is enough to calm the mind and body, with its winding paths, adobe buildings and stunning mountain views.

The perfect antidote to sore, aching muscles following a day on the town or the trails is a soak in naturally healing waters. Head toward Santa Fe’s mountains for Ten Thousand Waves’ secluded Japanese-inspired tubs—either budget-friendly communal ones or luxurious private options. Outside of town, an easy drive away, you can indulge in Ojo Caliente’s natural geothermal pools, which have been recognized for their healing benefits for thousands of years. Ranging in temperature from 80 all the way to 109 degrees Fahrenheit, the mineral-rich waters are filled with lithium, iron, soda, and arsenic, which are believed to help conditions ranging from depression to digestive issues. A refreshing mud pool is touted as a great way to detoxify your skin. Slather yourself with mud, let it dry in the New Mexico sun and return to town feeling cleansed and refreshed.

Get Outta Town!

Day Trips

From late May until mid-October, all aboard for a nostalgic train ride on the highest narrow-gauge railroad in the country: Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. Departing from Chama, just two hours north of Santa Fe, the train ascends the 10,015-foot Cumbres Pass in Colorado, passing dramatic shifts in scenery along the 64-mile route, from pastoral farmland to rock-hemmed valleys bisected by winding rivers.

Once Santa Fe gets into your soul, it’s hard to tear yourself away from the place. So much of the city’s history is directly tied to other areas of Northern New Mexico that your love affair with the city will only grow following fun day trips out of town. With Santa Fe as your home base, dedicate some time to taking memorable driving excursions to Taos, Los Alamos, Abiquiú, Madrid, Chimayó, Pecos National Historical Park, the Eight Northern Pueblos, Las Vegas, or one of New Mexico’s other landmarks. You’ll find yourself returning to Santa Fe even more infatuated with the area—not to mention in time for dinner. So get out the map, gas up the car, stock up on water, and pack your sense of adventure. Northern New Mexico calls!

Day Trips

See why artist Georgia O’Keeffe took up residence in the painted mesa village of Abiquiú (AB-i-cue), about 50 miles northwest of Santa Fe, off Highway 84/285. You can tour her home by making advance reservations through the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. Ghost Ranch, where O’Keeffe spent her summers and which is now a conference center, is 10 miles ahead. Heading north on Route 554 will lead you to Ojo Caliente, a town named for its mineral hot springs.

LISA LAW

O’Keeffe Country/Abiquiú & Ojo Caliente

Eight Northern Pueblos Eight Native American Pueblos lie north of Santa Fe: Nambé, Picuris, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Ohkay Owingeh, Santa Clara, Taos and Tesuque. Some Pueblos, such as Taos and Santa Clara (specifically its Puye Cliff Dwellings), may be explored. Taos Pueblo has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors are also welcome at many of the pueblos' annual dances, events, and feast day celebrations.

Taos and the High Road

Turquoise Trail

Named for ancient turquoise mines in the area, the scenic Turquoise Trail heads south out of Santa Fe on Highway 14 toward Albuquerque. The small mining towns of Cerrillos and Madrid (MAD-rid), historic in their own rights, today are funky, colorful artists’ communities. The 2007 Disney movie Wild Hogs was filmed partially in Madrid. 46

STEPHEN LANG

The High Road leads to Taos, a historic town about 1.5 hours northeast of Santa Fe. On the way is the Santuario de Chimayó, a small church built in the early 1800s. In Taos itself is the ancient Taos Pueblo, the Taos Plaza, the Rio Grande Gorge with its 650-foot drop to the river, the Harwood Museum of Art, the Kit Carson Museum, and the Millicent Rogers Museum.

Bandelier National Monument Spend a few hours or an entire day hiking the many trails that wind through Bandelier National Monument as well as exploring its ancient Native American cliff dwellings and petroglyphs.
