TOURISM SANTA FE

THEODORE GREER

There are so many reasons why Santa Fe, founded over 400 years ago, is known today as the “City Different.” The capital city with the highest elevation in the country is a place unlike any other in the world, with unique architecture, cuisine, art and a centuries-old union of three distinct cultural identities. The Santa Fe Plaza, built in 1610, is still the life and heart of our city. Surrounded by historic buildings that house shops, museums and restaurants, the Plaza hosts art markets, festivals, parades and lively musical gatherings. Under the portal at the Palace of the Governors, the oldest continuously occupied government building in the United States, local Native artisans have sold jewelry, pottery and handicrafts for generations. But Santa Fe is more than a living history destination—our cultural festivals and performing arts are legendary. At any time of year you can enjoy some of the world’s most exquisite voices, see international dance and theater groups and hear renowned speakers and celebrated musicians. A major U.S. art market, the City Different boasts over 250 fine art galleries with world-class art from local, regional and national masters. Santa Fe’s distinctive adobe architecture and mountains make it an ideal filming location for movies and TV shows. And the food! With over 400 restaurants representing nearly every cuisine—not to mention our famous red and green chile— Santa Fe is a foodie’s paradise. An average of 325 sunny days per year is ideal for all sorts of fresh-air activities in four distinct, wondrous seasons, making Santa Fe a top destination for lovers of the outdoors. The altitude, at just over 7,000 feet—even higher in the mountains—provides clean air and sweeping vistas for hikers, skiers, cyclists and other adventure-seekers. In 2017, National Geographic’s World Legacy Awards named Santa Fe its number one selection in “Sense of Place” in the entire world. It’s no wonder. Come see for yourself why Santa Fe—the City Different—is like no other place on earth.

Play Hard

BOB WARD

Santa Fe boasts a perfect climate for outdoor recreation. Skiing and snowboarding rule from Thanksgiving to Easter and whitewater rafting season begins when the snow melts. Mountain trails and the Rocky Mountain foothills scenery beckon for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, while long stretches of hilly roads and picturesque highway are like a siren call to cyclists and motorcycle enthusiasts. When the day is done, make a stop or two along the Margarita Trail and get your passport stamped. (You’ll want to come back to fill it!) 14

Neighborhoods of the City Different Come Out and Meet Us! Part of the flavor of the City Different is its distinctive neighborhoods. There’s the sedate and leafy Historic District, with the old charm of the Plaza, great retail and fabulous museums; colorful Canyon Road, lined with inviting galleries; the Railyard-Guadalupe District, which blends contemporary visual and performing arts; the buzzing Siler Rufina Nexus, melding art and technology; and the growing residential Southside, a shopping and dining corridor in close proximity to some of Santa Fe’s most beloved natural areas. So much is different in the City Different.

Radiating from the four-centuries-old Palace of the Governors, the most historic area of the city is completely walkable, with quaint winding streets featuring charming boutiques, restaurants, bookstores and art galleries tucked into every block. Aspects of the past remain in the look and feel of the traditional Spanish Plaza, including a certain flavor of the Old West and the time-honored tradition whereby local Native artisans sell their amazing creations beneath the portal of the Palace of the Governors.

Neighborhoods of the City Different

Railyard-Guadalupe District

The district that used to be a collection of old warehouses around Siler and Rufina roads is now hip, edgy and art-focused. Giant sculptures of a red robot and a metal spider signal your arrival in this reimagined Santa Fe neighborhood. The mind-bending Meow Wolf art collective leads the way with the interactive House of Eternal Return installation, and encourages experimentation and education through its on-site workshops. The Siler Rufina Nexus is also an emerging theater district, with companies such as Teatro Paraguas and Adobe Rose Theatre offering original and well-loved plays and theater workshops. After taking in a show, grab a bite at one of the area's newest restaurants.

Southside The bustling Southside is the residential side of Santa Fe where many locals live, shop and dine. Cerrillos Road is the main corridor, with easy access northward to the Plaza, and southbound access to Tent Rocks and Albuquerque. Here you’ll find older pocket neighborhoods, fashion outlets, major grocery chains, national brand lodging and an array of unique and family-friendly restaurants. Tucked amid the hustle and bustle of the Southside are neighborhood parks with plenty of biking and walking trails that wind along the Santa Fe River.

Running from Guadalupe to Baca Streets, the Railyard district is home to the newly enlarged and renovated SITE Santa Fe, which shows some of the world’s foremost contemporary artists. Nearby El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe showcases and supports Hispanic art and culture and hosts various ethnic, tribal and vintage markets throughout the year. Galleries along Guadalupe and Paseo de Peralta carry contemporary art complemented by modern architecture while Baca Street has workshops and studios where you can find the proprietor creating a painting or blowing glass.

Siler Rufina Nexus

Home to the internationally acclaimed Meow Wolf immersive arts collective and its House of Eternal Return permanent exhibit, the area around Siler and Rufina is

an emerging art market with art studios, performance spaces and other creative endeavors. Small, informal galleries are popping up in this once industrial area.

Public Art

Thanks to 1986 legislation, New Mexico sets aside money for art in public places. Ranging from beautifully designed bridges and bus stop shelters to the beloved bronze donkey at the entrance to Burro Alley, Santa Fe’s public buildings, parks and transit system are accented with pieces by local artists such as Santa Fe Current, a granite sculpture of 27 cutthroat trout by Colette Hosmer on Marcy Street, and Family by awardwinning sculptor Roxanne Swentzell in the Santa Fe Community Convention Center.

Hands-On Art

Possibly the best way to experience art in Santa Fe is to create it yourself. Discover your inner artist through painting, glassblowing, clay, photography, ceramics and jewelry making classes and workshops. Classes range from a few hours of instruction to intensive monthlong workshops and degree-granting programs through the Institute of American Indian Arts and Santa Fe Community College.

Pippin Contemporary first opened on Lincoln Avenue and after a couple years the gallery was relocated to the foot of Canyon Road. In 2015, Pippin had the opportunity to purchase 409 Canyon Road from artist Tom Ross and in March 2016, Pippin Contemporary opened in their permanent gallery home.

ADDISON DOTY. COURTESY OF MUSEUM OF NEW MEXICO PRESS

Santa Fe feels timeless and it’s no wonder. The area has been inhabited for millennia by Indigenous peoples who established permanent sites along the Rio Grande and formed the distinct Pueblos we know today. They called the area around Santa Fe the “Dancing Ground of the Sun” and “White Shell Water Place.” In the mid- to late-16th century, Spanish scouts began exploring the area in search of the Seven Cities of Gold and in 1610 Spain founded the city of Santa Fe, building the town around a Plaza that's been the city's heart for over 400 years. It was a turbulent time. After the Spanish were expelled in 1680, they returned to re-establish themselves in 1692 and eventually a truce of sorts evolved. By 1750, Anglo settlers were joining the population and when the Santa Fe Trail was established in 1821, new arrivals flooded in. In 1821, the Spanish Territory of New Mexico fell under the governance of the newly independent Mexico. It remained such until 1848 when it was ceded to the U.S. as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at the end of the Mexican-American War.

History and Culture

As the American West boomed, it was the railroad that drew the next influx of residents to Northern New Mexico. In 1878, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway arrived, with a Santa Fe spur that allowed easy access to the City Different. In 1912, New Mexico joined the Union as the 47th state. In the early 20th century, artists and architects began to establish themselves on the eastside of town and along bohemian Canyon Road. Groups formed that championed the arts and created an architectural code that influences the City Different’s look to this day.

Tricultural Tradition

STEPHEN LANG

Stroll along the Plaza and you're walking in the footsteps of Santa Fe's most colorful ancestors. The blend of Pueblo, Hispano and Anglo cultures over the centuries is what makes Santa Fe truly different from any other place in the world. The city's unique “triculture” has produced an immediately identifiable architecture, a distinctive local cuisine and an artistic presence that has developed into a major U.S. art market. Santa Fe proudly embraces the traditions and influences of the people who have made their homes here for generations.

Festivals y Fiestas

There’s always something happening in Santa Fe, including food events, art markets and cultural festivals that celebrate the City Different. Galleries host art openings on Friday nights and Canyon Road welcomes visitors to the Canyon Road Spring Arts Festival and the fall Paint & Sculpt Out. There are many colorful events throughout the year. January welcomes the Souper Bowl culinary competition, while in May, the Santa Fe Jin Japanese festival and the Native Treasures Indian Arts Festival are celebrated. Cocktails and Culture and the Edible Art Tour appeal to foodies in June. Traditional Spanish Market, Contemporary Hispanic Market and the world-famous International Folk Art Market happen in July; while in August, Indian Market, We Are the Seeds and the Zuni Show also draw international visitors. The burning of the famed Zozobra marionette kicks off Santa Fe Fiesta week on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. Gourmands love September's Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown and the Wine & Chile Fiesta. There are also four film festivals throughout the year, and of course, the Margarita Trail is open all year round.

Perhaps the most magical time to be in Santa Fe is around the holiday season, when fresh snow often sparkles under the colorful lights of the Plaza, farolitos illuminate rooflines along Canyon Road and moonlight brightens frosted-sugar adobe walls. Even snowy days don't feel like deep winter; abundant sunshine keeps temperatures in the mid to high 40s.

Kind of Architecture Visitors to Santa Fe are often struck by its prominent adobe architecture. Particular to Santa Fe, there are three distinctive architectural styles within the city center. Pueblo or Spanish Revival is perhaps the best known, reflecting the influences of both Native and Spanish flat-roofed adobes. These homes and buildings usually have brick or stone floors and charming handcrafted interior walls supported by long wooden vigas. Exteriors often feature softly rounded corners, with warm ochre stucco. Northern New Mexico style was established by early settlers of European heritage, adding a pitched roof to the traditional adobe structure for easier snow removal. Territorial architecture is similar to Pueblo’s flatroofed concept, but with sharp, clean edges, brick coping around the rooflines and wood window trims that are often painted crisp white, turquoise or one of many hues of “Santa Fe blue.” SantaFe.org

Pueblo Culture

SantaFe.org

Twenty-two tribes of Indigenous peoples form the backbone of New Mexico. Of these, eight Pueblos are located in Northern New Mexico: Nambé, Ohkay Owingeh, Picuris, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Taos and Tesuque. Their influence is strongly felt here, in nearly every way. Pueblo architecture, arts, food, fashion and culture lend their styles to Santa Fe. Perhaps the most immediately visible Pueblo influence is in the city's architecture and adobe buildings. Then there are the exquisite pieces of pottery, textiles and jewelry sold by Native artisans under the portal of the Palace of the Governors or in the many unique shops throughout the city. Specific Indigenous patterns adorn shawls, skirts, rugs and other fashion items and home décor. Pueblo feast days are great draws for tourists and locals alike. For information and etiquette about visiting one of the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos for tribal feast days and events open to the public, go to SantaFe.org or the website of each individual Pueblo. Each August the world-famous Southwestern Association of Indian Arts (SWAIA) Indian Market fills Santa Fe with traditional and contemporary Native artists, dancers, filmmakers and fashion designers from across North America. It’s the largest event of its kind, with seminars, performances and competitions throughout the week. Complementing Indian Market are the popular Zuni Show, which features exquisite Zuni jewelry, pottery and artwork, and the two-day We Are the Seeds art market and celebration in the Railyard.

Something for Every Taste Hundreds of shops, boutiques and specialty stores selling everything from antique jewelry to custom boots and hats make Santa Fe a shopper’s paradise. Santa Fe's status as a trading post began with the advent of the Santa Fe Trail and El Camino Real. The Portal Native American Artisans Program provides Native artists a place to sell stunning silver and turquoise jewelry, pottery and handcrafts beneath the portal of the Palace of the Governors. This is a wonderful opportunity to speak with the artists personally about their wares and take home something that is uniquely Santa Fe. Along the Plaza, family-owned shops and outfitters decorate their windows with jewelry, home décor, sporting goods and outdoor wear, cowboy boots, kitchen items, Santa Fe souvenirs and more. Throughout town, antique stores and consignment shops offer treasures in the form of clothing, furniture and decorative items. Near the Plaza and further outside of the historic center on Museum Hill are Santa Fe’s iconic museums, each with gift shops bursting with books, jewelry and authentic Native American art. If art is what draws you to Santa Fe, there are over 250 galleries around town including those around the Plaza, the Railyard and along picturesque Canyon Road. Every type of art imaginable can be found on Canyon Road, which is famous for fine art including traditional and contemporary painting, sculpture, textiles, leather goods, pottery, antiques, rugs and photography. Just southwest of the Plaza, the flourishing Railyard-Guadalupe District is home to one of the best farmers markets in the United States as well as galleries and Western wear shops that frequently draw a celebrity or two. For more mainstream shopping, including national retailers, stop by the DeVargas Center, Santa Fe Place Mall or the Santa Fe Fashion Outlets. Looking for something truly handmade and one of a kind? Plan your visit around one of Santa Fe’s big art events. International Folk Art Market, Traditional Spanish Market, Contemporary best sHOppINg Hispanic Market and Santa Fe Indian Market offer cItIes IN tHe exquisite treasures for the most discerning buyers.

Ensuring Purchases of Authentic Native American art

The Santa Fe experience is built on a foundational history and culture of the Native Americans who have been here for thousands of years. Taking home an original work of Native American art is a wonderful way to remember your visit to Santa Fe—and it might even inspire a deeper appreciation of a new-to-you art form. Beginning in 2017, retailers offering Native American items for sale are required to display a Native American Arts & Crafts District sticker and to clearly mark Native American items. Look for shops displaying the sticker at their entrance. These businesses have certified that they are knowledgeable about relevant federal and state laws regarding the sale of Native arts. These laws require retailers to be truthful regarding the origin of the work, making it illegal to suggest something is Native American when it is not. New Mexico law requires shops to let you know if an item is entirely handmade or partly crafted by machine. It also obligates sellers to disclose if any treated materials were used in the creation of the item. It is important to the City of Santa Fe to protect both the Native American artists who have built a tradition of excellence here and the visitors who come to experience it in an authentic way. If you are considering purchasing a Native work of art, remember to look for the Native American Arts & Crafts District sticker while shopping in the Arts or Crafts District and ask the dealer questions about the provenance, process and materials used by the artisan. Learn more at one of TOURISM Santa Fe’s Visitor Centers and at SantaFe.org. Shop smart—and take home a treasure. SantaFe.org

You’ll find the famously fiery fruit on menus in most of the 400+ restaurants around town, incorporated into dishes that creatively blend Pueblo, Spanish and contemporary tastes into a cuisine that is distinctively New Mexican. You're as likely to find chile infused into locally sourced cheeses, breads, olive oils, pastries, artisan coffees and chocolates as in a plate of steaming tamales or cheesy enchiladas.

It isn’t likely Jimmy Buffett was singing about Santa Fe in “Margaritaville,” but with the Santa Fe Margarita Trail, the City Different has elevated its own celebration of that famous, kicky cocktail. Santa Fe proudly lays claim to the drink due to the area’s historic links with Mexico and the Spanish conquistadors’ clever creation of tequila, inspired by the Aztec pulque, or fermented agave juice. If you’re a margarita fan, you can enjoy this one-of-akind Trail whether you are in Santa Fe for a weekend or are lucky enough to visit regularly. You have three options for acquiring a Passport to the Trail: purchase a Margarita Trail Passport for just $3 at any of the three TOURISM Santa Fe Visitor Centers; buy directly from one of the 30+ participating bars and restaurants; or simply download the new Margarita Trail Passport paid app ($3) from the Apple App Store or Google Play. There is also a free Trail Locator app that provides the margarita locations, but in order to collect stamps and earn prizes, you must purchase the paid version. Present your Passport or paid version of the app for a $1 discount on the signature specialty margarita offered at each site. You’ll earn a stamp at each location for trying their signature margarita—but before you get too carried away, there’s a limit of two stamps per day! Both versions of the app have the added bonus of an interactive map and list the Trail locations closest to you. Don’t forget to rate each margarita with the new five-star rating system and get your Passport or app "stamped" in order to earn prizes. Your app will notify you when you earn prizes, which include a commemorative T-shirt, membership in the Margarita Society and a signed copy of The Great Margarita Book. Finish the entire trail (we dare you!) and earn a Margarita Bartender Kit. Redeem prizes at the Downtown Visitor Center located in the Plaza Galeria. From low-key bars to award-winning fine-dining establishments, each location on the Trail proudly boasts its own unique Santa Fe vibe and a killer signature margarita recipe.

Bring your stress, your busy life, your anxieties and worries and leave them here. Take the plunge into a muscle-relaxing soaking tub, wrap yourself in an herbal body treatment or center your mind and spirit through meditation. Whatever your body or soul needs, it’s in Santa Fe.

Slowly, by Design

The sacred lands surrounding Santa Fe have been revered by local Indigenous peoples for millennia. Even today, the area’s cool, dry air, forested hills, running streams and pristine mountain scenery continue to draw individuals seeking respite, inner peace and a revitalization of body and soul. Santa Feans appreciate the benefits of moving slowly and appreciating the incredible beauty of this area. We invite our visitors to do the same.

Soulful Spas

Many of Santa Fe’s exceptional hotels and resorts have fabulous spas with offerings ranging from long soaks in hot mineral baths and volcanic clays to reflexology treatments and healing rituals involving sage, juniper and other herbs. Each spa has a lovely, distinctive atmosphere, yet maintains the unique and spiritual essence of Santa Fe. What’s your spa pleasure? Perhaps a salt-and-lime foot scrub that evokes the citrusy pleasure of a margarita or a specialized Japanese-style body treatment that relaxes quite literally from head to toe.

The Santa Fe Farmers Market is a fun Saturday morning (and seasonally on Tuesdays) event in the Railyard, with local farmers and artisans selling everything from fresh vegetables to ristras and locally produced textiles. From here pop across the street to contemporary art museum SITE Santa Fe to see their latest exhibit. Wrap up the day making a couple of stops (two stamps max per day!) on the Santa Fe Margarita Trail before attending a concert, play or other performing arts event at the Lensic Performing Arts Center or one of several small box theaters in the Siler Rufina Nexus.

Book some self-pampering at one of Santa Fe's worldclass spas with a treatment using local botanicals. Get your hands dirty and learn a new skill with a hands-on art or cooking workshop. Families can explore El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history museum located minutes south of Santa Fe. Get a bit further out of the city with one of the great day trips on page 44—Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, Abiquiú, Tent Rocks or one of the Eight Northern Pueblos. 46
