SANTA FE

tional Mountain Bicycling Association chose Santa Fe as the location for their 2012 World Summit, and athletes from around the world regularly train here due to the high altitude, great weather and clean air. Santa Fe has continually been rated as one of the top U.S. destinations for travel, romance, culture, art and food, so we have a lot to share with you. I know you will find your favorite parts of Santa Fe as you explore, and I'm certain you will come to appreciate this special place as much as I do. As you make your way through this travel planner, remember there is no way to possibly tell you everything there is to do and see in Santa Fe in these few pages. I urge you to also delve into our website at santafe.org, and remember the helpful specialists at our visitor centers are here to assist at any point prior to or during your stay. Give them a call at 800-777-2489, and then get out and enjoy a beautiful and colorful journey in Santa Fe! We look forward to your visit. DOUGLAS MERRIAM

All of us in Santa Fe hope you have a chance to experience our city and see for yourself what makes this 400-year old hometown so fascinating. As you journey through the Santa Fe Plaza you’ll see some of the oldest buildings in the country. The Palace of the Governors, built in 1610, goes back to Santa Fe's earliest days. Wander through the inner courtyards of Sena Plaza and experience life at a leisurely pace, enjoying the discovery of colorful flowers and handcrafted treasures. Our centuries-old history and culture are preserved and alive today behind every adobe wall. Santa Fe is one of the country’s most important cities for visual art and is also a vibrant center of performing arts. The town is filled with artists, actors, writers, musicians, filmmakers and most of all, creativity—one reason Santa Fe was designated the first UNESCO Creative City in the U.S. for Folk Art and Design. Try a hands-on workshop with a local artist, and see art come alive. Our cuisine is famous for its unique blend of the three cultures (Native American, Spanish and Anglo) that settled and continue to dwell here, so much so that hundreds of cookbooks and chefs have devoted recipes and content to the subject of Santa Fe cooking. Be sure to try our most famous local crop—chile—as you enjoy a meal or two in our incredible restaurants. A signature aspect of Santa Fe cuisine, no visit would be complete without red, green, or Christmas on your plate. As a community surrounded by pristine nature due to our location in the southern Rocky Mountains, coupled with over 300 days a year of sunshine, Santa Fe is home to great outdoor adventure. Our location amidst national forests and state parks makes Santa Fe an ideal stepping-off spot for all kinds of outdoor recreation. The Interna-

Feeling lazy? Many Santa Fe hotels offer spa services; try a relaxing couple's massage right in your room.

Neighborhoods!

JULIEN MCROBERTS

You’re part of the family now, so explore Santa Fe like a local. You’ll love getting acquainted with our three most beloved neighborhoods: the historic Plaza/Downtown, artsy Canyon Road and the hip Railyard/Guadalupe district. Tons of fabulous shopping, historic landmarks, memorable people-watching and incredible spots to dine and drink are literally just steps apart. Each neighborhood lends its distinctive vibe to Santa Fe’s diverse culture and begs to be explored by adventurous spirits. So pocket your keys, pick a neighborhood and come say hello. We’re eager to meet you!

Plaza/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 home of the governor and even a prison. Today the Plaza's vibe is considerably more friendly, with fabulous shops, restaurants, art galleries and museums bordering the perimeter of a grassy park. Some of the city’s finest hotels and oldest landmarks are just a block away, making the Plaza and downtown area a convenient place to simply park, forget about your car for a few days and soak in everything that is Santa Fe.

Canyon Road

The Art and Soul of Santa Fe Stunning Canyon Road has come a long way since its dirt trail days of centuries past. Now Santa Fe’s most famous street, Canyon Road is an art lover’s mecca, with more than 100 world-class art galleries showcasing old masters, contemporary paintings and sculpture, 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. Several exceptional restaurants will help you recharge before hitting the next amazing shop or gallery. The mile-long street is eminently walkable and distinctly Santa Fe delightful.

Railyard/Guadalupe District

Funky, Fab, Friendly

With its unique boutiques, galleries, restaurants and handful of chain stores, the Railyard/Guadalupe district renaissance is definitely complete. Take a class at the Santa Fe School of Cooking on the north side, then head southwest of downtown to the heart of the Railyard where you’ll find contemporary art galleries, independent clothing and accessory shops, boutiques selling everything from antiques to cowboy boots and some of Santa Fe’s most popular eateries. Meander slightly west toward Montezuma Street to browse pet supplies, bedding and more at the colorful Sanbusco Market Center, and cap off your visit with a trip to Santa Fe's celebrated Farmers Market, which is flanked by the Railyard Park, SITE Santa Fe and contemporary performance venues. 2013

The Quick History: We’re ANCIENT—and AMAZING!

Santa Fe—the oldest capital city in the United States— celebrates birthday number 403 in 2013. Funny: In some ways, the city seems timeless. The Plaza, a one-block square in the center of downtown that has served as Santa Fe’s cultural, social and political hub for four centuries, is the heart and soul of Santa Fe. Grab an ice cream and find a bench; today’s Plaza is a grassy park that encourages lounging. The best part? You can leave your car keys behind. The Plaza has it all: shops, restaurants, museums, free summertime concerts and the best people-watching in the city.

Tricultural coolness 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 adobe structures and the pueblo style that defines Santa Fe’s distinctive look even today. Spanish explorers in search of gold made their entrance to the Santa Fe area in the mid-16th century, eventually settling in the area and establishing Santa Fe as the capital of Nuevo Mexico 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 Mexico became

the Territory of New Mexico, but in 1846, the United States claimed possession of New Mexico, spurring the MexicanAmerican War. Two years later, in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico ceded nearly all of present-day California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico to the U.S. New Mexico was admitted to the Union as the 47th state in 1912 and celebrated its centennial of statehood last year. The history of both the state of New Mexico and its ancient capital city is rooted in the interaction among its original settlers. Interactions between these groups centuries ago define Santa Fe even today, where the city’s diverse cultural history is apparent in every single aspect of its art, cuisine and architecture.

From mud to magnificent Ridiculed by early travelers and modernists for the mostly brown, earth-toned exteriors of her buildings and homes, Santa Fe is enjoying the last laugh as thousands of visitors flock to the City Different each year. Let’s face it, from the moment you arrive in Santa Fe, you're surrounded in history. Architecturally, Santa Fe relies on its earliest inhabitants for guidance. The brown exteriors remain, but inside, galleries, museums, restaurants and homes are an eye-popping array of vibrant colors and unusual style elements that blend the historic with the contemporary. With Santa Fe's low skyline, you can stroll beneath brilliant skies, savor the magnificent mountain views in the distance and let Santa Fe’s singular adobe style sink into your psyche.

10,000 BC – Nomadic Paleo-Indians move into what is now the Santa Fe area. 1000–1400 AD – Agriculture takes hold. Several permanent pueblos are built. 1400–1600 – Roughly 5,000 people live in pueblos. 1598 – Conquistador Don Juan de Oñate establishes first Spanish settlement in Northern New Mexico at San Juan (Ohkay Owingeh) and becomes first colonial governor of Nuevo Mexico.


The original party animals Santa Feans are social creatures, and our celebrations are legendary. Santa Fe even has a festival season that extends from May through October and features more than 40 fairs, markets, shows and festivals that celebrate everything from wine and chile to American Indian art and jazz music. With dry, cool, sunny summers and autumns, can you blame us? (See Events, page 56.) During the summer months, visit El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history museum, for festivals showcasing wines, lavender and herbs and Mexican culture. In the fall, crush grapes and string ristras during the museum's harvest celebration. Some Santa Fe festival traditions are new, but many have roots in the city’s earliest days. Visit the City of Holy Faith the week after Labor Day during Fiestas de Santa Fe, the oldest continuous community celebration in the United States, dating to 1712.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT

SANTA FE CULTURE? We still hold public burnings. Santa Feans annually clean house of their worries and troubles with the public burning of Zozobra (aka “Old Man Gloom”) the week after Labor Day. The 50-foot marionette moans, groans and thrashes in harmless fury while the city’s residents joyfully watch their concerns and worries go up in flames.

Yule love the season Set your heart aglow with a visit to Santa Fe during the holidays. Farolitos light up buildings 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, find a spot in the Plaza on Friday when the lights go on—the official kickoff to the holiday season. Las Posadas, which starts and ends at the Palace of the Governors, re-creates the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph as they searched for shelter that holy night. On Christmas Eve, sip hot chocolate and join families strolling down Canyon Road at the annual Farolito Walk.

1609–1610 – Santa Fe established as capital of Nuevo Mexico. Palace of the Governors constructed ca. 1610. 1680 – Ohkay Owingeh medicine man Po'Pay leads successful Pueblo Revolt, expels Spanish from Nuevo Mexico. 1692 – Don Diego de Vargas leads bloodless reconquest of Nuevo Mexico. 1700–1750 – Adobe buildings erected facing the Santa Fe Plaza. First homes constructed along Canyon Road. 1821– Mexico wins independence from Spain. Santa Fe Trail opens, stretching from Missouri River to Santa Fe.


History and Culture

To Do Today: Must-see Historical Stops

Historic Plaza (bounded by W Palace, Lincoln, E San Francisco and Old Santa Fe Trail) The Plaza was established ca. 1610 by Don Pedro de Peralta. Originally a presidio (fort) surrounded by a wall that enclosed barracks, a chapel, a prison, a few homes and the Palace of the Governors, the Plaza today is a grassy square surrounded by exquisite shops and exceptional restaurants. A bandstand, plentiful benches and an easy-to-navigate layout encourage sitting, strolling and people-watching. St. Francis Cathedral (131 Cathedral Place) Officially called the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis Cathedral combines adobe, French-Romanesque and modern architectural styles in a breathtakingly beautiful package both inside and out. Built between 1869–1887 by Bishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy, the cathedral is decorated with stunning stained glass windows and is a photographer’s delight. Barrio de Analco (roughly bounded by E De Vargas and Old Santa Fe Trail off De Vargas) Barrio de Analco is the oldest historic district in Santa Fe. It includes San Miguel Mission and the Oldest House, plus five other historic structures and the buildings in between them. Built between 1610 and 1626, San Miguel Mission (401 Old Santa Fe Trail) is regarded

as the oldest church in the United States. Though damaged and rebuilt numerous times, the church’s original adobe walls remain intact. The Oldest House (215 E De Vargas), also called the De Vargas Street House, is reputed to be the oldest house in the United States, reportedly built around 1646. Loretto Chapel (207 Old Santa Fe Trail) Formerly a Roman Catholic church, the Loretto Chapel is no longer in use as a church but functions as a museum and wedding chapel. The chapel’s “miraculous” spiral staircase is an architectural wonder; its construction is the subject of much speculation. La Fonda on the Plaza (100 E San Francisco) A grand and sprawling example of Pueblo Revival architecture, this Santa Fe landmark hotel was the favorite of many early-20th-century artists, writers and visiting dignitaries. Architect and Pueblo Revival champion John Gaw Meem constructed the hotel in 1926, and pioneering architect and designer Mary Jane Colter designed the hotel’s interior. Santuario de Guadalupe (100 N Guadalupe) Southwest of the Plaza, the Santuario de Guadalupe was built around 1776. A 12-foot statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patron saint of New Mexico, rests on the grounds. Sena Plaza (125 E Palace) Santa Feans have used Sena Plaza as a gathering place since 1610. Major Jose Sena built a small adobe on the site in 1864 which gradually increased in size to a grand hacienda boasting more than 33 rooms. Today it houses La Casa Sena, a favorite local restaurant, and a number of shops. Its courtyard is one of the prettiest places to sit in Santa Fe. Canyon Road The “art and soul of Santa Fe,” Canyon Road was a dirt trail for almost 250 years. Today it is home to more than 100 of the world’s finest art galleries, containing works from the Taos and Santa Fe artists of the late 1800s and 1900s, as well as those of modern masters. While you’re checking out art along the mile-long road, be sure to also take in the buildings housing it; many are well over a century old and beautifully preserved.

1824 – Former Spanish province becomes Territory of New Mexico; Santa Fe remains its capital. 1846 – Mexican-American War begins. U.S. claims possession of New Mexico. 1848 – Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo: Mexico cedes nearly all of present-day California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico to the U.S. 1869–1887 – Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi (St. Francis Cathedral) constructed by Bishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy. 1878 – Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway comes to New Mexico but bypasses Santa Fe and goes through Lamy.

New Mexico History Museum & Palace of the Governors (113 Lincoln, 105 W Palace) Immerse yourself in all that was and is New Mexico. Short on time? Start with the New Mexico History Museum, which covers prehistory to today, then head to the Palace of the Governors. The oldest continually occupied government building in the United States, the Palace of the Governors was built in 1610 and currently houses numerous exhibitions, collections and artifacts reflecting the area’s nearly 500-year history. During the daytime, Native American artisans sell authentic American Indian jewelry beneath the Palace’s long portal.


MEMO TO SELF: Come back for… Indian Market

(mid-August) Sponsored by the Southwestern Association for Indian Art (SWAIA), Indian Market is the largest gathering of Native American artisans (over 1,000) in the world. Winter Indian Market is held Thanksgiving weekend at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center.

Spanish Market

(late July and early December) The Spanish Colonial Arts Society hosts this colorful semiannual showcase featuring the work of hundreds of local Hispanic artists. Spanish Market Week also features live music and dance performances, cooking classes and film screenings.

Speak! Santa Fe Brush up on your Santa Fe vocabulary, then test your knowledge as you take on the town: acequia (ah•SEH•kee•ah) – A manmade irrigation ditch. banco (BAHNK•oh) – A built-in plastered bench, often seen around kivas and under windows.

International Folk Art Market

chile (CHEE•lay) – The pepper that defines New Mexico cuisine. Long and green or red, chiles can be roasted, smoked or dried.

Fiestas de Santa Fe

corbel (COR•bul) – A large wooden bracket, often carved to be both functional and decorative, that supports vigas and lintels.

(mid-July) Master artists from around the globe—many of them women—come to Santa Fe to sell their art and share their cultures. The International Folk Art Market is the largest event of its kind in the world, featuring more than 150 artisans. (weekend after Labor Day) Descendants of the Spanish settlers in this area have been celebrating Fiestas since 1712. Events include concerts, performers in traditional costumes, a mariachi extravaganza, a fine-arts and crafts market, reenactments, processions and parades and the burning of Zozobra.

What is that?

descanso (des•CAHN•soh) – A roadside memorial to a loved one killed near that spot, usually in a traffic accident.

The three main styles of architecture in Santa Fe are Pueblo, Territorial and Northern New Mexico. However, in the oldest parts of the city, new buildings, additions and remodels must conform to one of two styles:

farolitos (fa•roh•LEE•tohs) Paper bags filled with sand and illuminated with candles. Also called luminarias.

Pueblo or Pueblo Revival – Inspired by Native American adobe buildings and Spanish mud-brick churches, the Pueblo Revival style features earthcolored stucco walls with an adobe-like appearance, rounded corners at intersections, brick flooring, flat roofs drained by canales and rows of vigas. Although at one time mostly one-story, today’s pueblo-style buildings are often multistoried. See this style when you visit: Palace of the Governors, La Fonda on the Plaza, New Mexico Museum of Art Territorial – Similar to Pueblo style, but with sharp-cornered walls, brick coping around the roofline and wood-trimmed windows. See this style when you visit: Catron Building (northeast side of the Plaza) and various homes on Canyon Road

kiva (KEE•va) – The iconic Santa Fe fireplace, small and semicircular with a round opening, usually built into a corner. latillas (lah•TEE•ahs) – Straight, slender saplings stripped of bark and laid across vigas like decking. nicho (NEE•cho) – A wall niche used to display religious objects, sculptures, shrines or small pieces of art. portal (por•TAHL) – An attached, covered porch supported by posts with corbels and vigas. ristra (REE•stra) – A string of fresh or dried red chile peppers. vigas (VEE•gas) – Large round wooden beams attached to a ceiling to support the roof.

1912 – New Mexico becomes 47th state in the Union. 1943 – Santa Fe’s secret field office is gateway for scientists heading to an equally secret facility in Los Alamos for building of world’s first atomic bomb. 1957 – Santa Fe passes Historic Styles Ordinance. Conductor John Crosby founds the Santa Fe Opera. 1962 – Canyon Road designated a Residential Arts and Crafts Zone. 2009 – The New Mexico History Museum opens just off the Plaza. 2010 – Santa Fe celebrates its 400th anniversary. 2012 – New Mexico celebrates 100 years of statehood.

Today you can browse historic adobes along Canyon Road, wander warehouse-like spaces in the Railyard and catch thought-provoking exhibits Downtown or on Museum Hill. Discover for yourself why this modern-day art colony has not only survived but thrived over the centuries and experience firsthand how its collection of everything from the classic to the contemporary, the ancient to the avant-garde, makes it a mecca for art enthusiasts around the world.

Downtown The historic heart of Santa Fe is also a hub of fine-art activity, with dozens of galleries and a handful of museums lining the Plaza and its surrounding streets. Native American art takes center stage under the portal of the Palace of the Governors, where Native artists spread out their work on blankets and sell directly to the public. Across from St. Francis Cathedral, the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts is the only museum in the country that showcases the work of contemporary American Indian artists. Take in the large permanent collection of works created in and related to New Mexico at the 96-yearold New Mexico Museum of Art, a magnificent Spanish Pueblo Revival building. Learn about the life and works of New Mexico icon and 20th-century modernist painter Georgia O'Keeffe and her contemporaries at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, founded in 1997. South of the Plaza, the State Capitol’s Governor’s Gallery, part of the New Mexico Museum of Art and Department of Cultural Affairs, presents six exhibits a 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. The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission's Community Gallery at the Community Convention Center exhibits and sells the work of Santa Fe and New Mexico artists. 28

Canyon Road Nearly a mile long, Canyon Road, Santa Fe’s most famous street, was designated a Residential Arts and Crafts Zone by the City in 1962. Authentic adobe homes, some hundreds of years old, are now galleries specializing in Western, Native American and landscape art, while newer galleries feature a variety of other genres and mediums. The amount of cutting-edge, conceptual and contemporary realist art on Canyon Road has grown exponentially over the last two decades, linking Santa Fe even more strongly to the global art scene.

The Railyard Since its unveiling in the fall of 2008, and with the arrival shortly thereafter of the Rail Runner railway line, the 50-acre, city-owned Railyard has become a thriving art center and community gathering spot. (Visit the SFCVB Railyard Visitors Center at the Historic Depot, 410 S Guadalupe.)

Museum Hill Situated on Camino Lejo, a hillside street southeast of downtown accessible by the Santa Fe Trails M-Line, Museum Hill offers four distinct institutions representing art of the Southwest and the world. The first-rate, privately owned Museum of Spanish Colonial Art and Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian are at opposite ends of the short drive. In between, on Milner Plaza, you'll find 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 and Culture, which presents the diverse Native arts of the greater Southwest with an eye to the ties between art and its historic and cultural contexts.

Other Areas About a mile away from Museum Hill on Old Santa Fe Trail, the Center for Contemporary Arts promotes some of the area's best contemporary art and houses one of Santa Fe’s best movie theaters. Warehouse 21 and Santa Fe Community College (which recently opened Red Dot Gallery on Canyon Road) host impressive shows of young, up-and-coming local artists, while the Santa Fe Art Institute on St. Michael’s Drive offers workshops, lectures, outreach programs, artist residencies and contemporary art exhibitions.

Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) houses the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts. In Tesuque, five miles north of downtown, the Shidoni Foundry showcases bronze sculpture cast on-site and offers weekly, open-to-the-public molten bronze pours.

Public Art Galleries and museums aren’t the only places to find art in Santa Fe. Thanks to a 1986 legislative act, New Mexico is charged with setting aside funds to acquire or commission works by New Mexico artists. More than 70 public art displays throughout the City of Santa Fe enhance the beauty of civic buildings, public parks and Santa Fe’s transit system. These works represent the diversity of art found in the Southwest and, of course, Santa Fe.

Creative Tourism Perhaps one of the best ways to appreciate Santa Fe's art is to create your own. Most of Santa Fe's museums offer hands-on classes with professional artists in residence, and many artists offer private classes in painting, weaving, katsina making, pottery, photography, folk art and many other mediums.

Eric Bibb performs at the Lensic

Art comes to life in Santa Fe. Performing arts venues bustle yearround with offerings large and small, classic and cutting-edge. The center of it all is downtown’s Lensic Performing Arts Center, a 1931 Spanish Renaissance–style auditorium that hosted the likes of Judy Garland and Rita Hayworth before falling into disrepair in the late 20th century. Restored and reopened in 2001, the Lensic features music, dance and literary events both traditional and contemporary and is home to seven performance organizations such as the Santa Fe Symphony and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. You’ll find plenty of power performances elsewhere in the city, at places like Warehouse 21 and the Center for Contemporary Arts; Santa Fe's concerts range from big-ticket bonanzas to free family fare.

City of Markets Originally a trading post, Santa Fe today is a major shopping destination. Handcrafted jewelry, avant-garde artworks, custom-made cowboy boots, Native American art—all 403 years of Santa Fe’s history are represented in its stores, galleries and markets. Longstanding family-owned shops line the downtown Plaza, while nationally known chains, in addition to one-of-a kind outfitters, are found in the Railyard/Guadalupe district. Canyon Road bursts with galleries and cafés, and museum shops are everywhere, not just on Museum Hill. Annual markets—like Indian Market, Spanish Market and the International Folk Art Market— draw enthusiastic and shopping-ready crowds from around the world. When approaching the Plaza, one of the first sights you’ll see is dozens of Native American artisans selling their wares under the portal of the Palace of the Governors. This decades-old tradition is significant for the artists and a big opportunity for shoppers, who can choose from hundreds of pieces of handmade turquoise and silver jewelry on display. Shops and boutiques line all corners of the Plaza and deal primarily in items like jewelry, Native crafts, and high-end clothing. Two shopping centers—the Santa Fe Arcade on the Plaza and the Plaza Mercado—house galleries, chocolate shops, rooftop restaurants and more. Known for its mile-long stretch of galleries, Canyon Road is one of the best spots in the world to buy art, fine leather goods, Southwestern and contemporary jewelry and chic home furnishings. The Sanbusco Market and DeVargas shopping centers in the Railyard/Guadalupe district are go-to spots for home decor, cookware, sporting goods and designer apparel. 2013

It’s not all about the food. Santa Fe is also home to several of New Mexico’s 45-plus world-class wineries and distilleries. Your culinary tour won't be complete without a visit to Estrella del Norte Vineyard in Pojoaque or Vino del Corazon downtown. Fans of Scotch-style whiskies will enjoy the tasting room at Santa Fe Spirits. If tequila is more your style, try one of the more than 100 signature margaritas on the menu at Maria's New Mexican Kitchen. No matter where you visit, one of Santa Fe's award-winning mixologists will pour up something special just for you.

Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta (September 25–29) Celebrated chefs and vintners from around the world converge for five days of cooking demos, auctions, tastings and food and wine pairings.

SANTAFEWINEANDCHILE.ORG

Santa Fe boasts at least 10 of the stops along the famous Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail. Bobcat Bite’s burger, named in Alan Richman’s GQ article “20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die,” is sublime. Be sure to allow plenty of time when you go—the place is small, and the burgers are made to order. Bert’s Burger Bowl (“Since 1954: One Location Worldwide!”) serves up a fat, messy concoction along with killer onion rings. Other Santa Fe stops on the trail include Atrisco Café, La Plazuela at La Fonda, El Parasol and Blake’s Lotaburger.

Day Trips

Get Outta Town!

LISA LAW

“Pack your sense of adventure and discover Northern New Mexico”

Once Santa Fe gets into your soul, it’s hard to tear yourself away. But the truth is, so much Santa Fe history is directly tied to other areas of Northern New Mexico that your love affair with the city will only be further fueled with a fun, one-day trip out of town. With Santa Fe as your home base, add a day to your visit for a fun driving excursion 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 (remember the mantra) and pack your sense of adventure. Northern New Mexico calls! 2013

Day Trips O’Keeffe Country/Abiquiú & Ojo Caliente 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 of 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. 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 the Puye Cliffs at Santa Clara, may be explored. Visitors are also welcome at annual dances, events and feast day celebrations. For information about public events, contact the Eight Northern Pueblos Council (505-747-1593) at Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo just north of Española on Highway 68. Bandelier National Monument, Los Alamos & Jemez springs Spend a few hours or an entire day hiking the many trails that wind through Bandelier National Monument. You can explore Native American cliff dwellings and petroglyphs in the park. Just 13 miles north of Bandelier, the quaintness of Los Alamos belies its secretive history as the development site of the first atomic bomb. The Bradbury Science Museum, which documents the Manhattan Project, is well worth a half day’s visit. About an hour west of Los Alamos are the hot springs that bubble through the town of Jemez Springs. Taos and the High Road The High Road leads to Taos, a historic town about 100 miles 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. 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 right, today are funky, colorful artists’ communities. The 2007 Disney movie Wild Hogs was filmed partially in Madrid.

1-2 days:

3 days:

Spend some time getting acquainted with 5 Fe's neighborhoods. In the Plaza, the Santa New Mexico History Museum (linked to the Palace of the Governors), the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Art are must-sees. Stroll around the Plaza area and take in historical highlights like San Miguel Mission, St. Francis Cathedral and the spiral staircase at Loretto Chapel. On Museum Hill, visit the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture or the Museum of International Folk Art. Browse beautiful Canyon Road and its more than 100 worldclass art galleries or the Railyard/Guadalupe district for shopping and dining. Finally, get ready for your dinner reservation at one of the city’s 250 fabulous restaurants.

Take a vintage train ride this morning on the Santa Fe Southern Railway, which winds southward through 17 miles of unusual high desert scenery, then conducts its business in Lamy while you enjoy lunch in the train’s dining car. OR Rent a pony from Santa Fe Stables, Bishop's Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa, or Broken Saddle Riding Company in Cerrillos and take in the area's beautiful scenery on horseback. OR Head to the water for wet and wild fun. Santa Fe Rafting Company and Kokopelli Rafting Adventures offer exciting river rafting excursions on the Rio Grande, a little north of Santa Fe.

=

4 or More days: ADD A DAY TRIP! O’Keeffe Country/Abiquiú and Ojo Caliente. Tour Georgia O’Keeffe’s home in Abiquiú and hike Ghost Ranch. Head north on 554 through the mountains to Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa for some relaxing down time. OR Taos. On the way to Taos via the High Road, stop in Chimayó at the Santuario de Chimayó. In Taos, check out the 1,000-year-old Taos Pueblo, Rio Grande Gorge and several excellent museums. OR Las Vegas. If you like historic and quirky, Las Vegas, New Mexico, about 70 miles east of Santa Fe, is a great trip. Visit the haunted Plaza Hotel, the People's Flea Market and the Hot Springs near Montezuma Castle.

Santa Fe offers arguably more worldclass spa experiences than any other American city of its size, with treatments influenced by cultures near and far—Native American to European, Japanese to Indonesian. Santa Fe’s hotel and resort spas, with their extensive and creative menus, are destinations in their own rights, and services may be enjoyed in settings as diverse as outdoor massage gardens and Native American tepees. Day spas certainly hold their own in Santa Fe, offering perfect complements to activity-filled days of sightseeing, skiing, hiking or shopping. Blissful treatments based on the healing properties of local ingredients, from desert clay to sage and juniper, are among the most popular, as are skinsoftening body masks, detoxifying scrubs and wraps and purification rituals. Massages include hot stone, deep tissue, Shiatsu, Swedish, Reiki, chakra balancing, cranial sacral and signature treatments that work you over from head to toe.

Soak Away Your Stress The perfect antidote to sore, aching muscles following a day on the town or the trails is a soak in some naturally healing waters. Head toward Santa Fe’s mountains for secluded Japanese-inspired tubs, either budget-friendly communal ones or luxurious private options. Outside of town, an easy drive away, you can indulge in natural geothermal pools that have been recognized for their healing benefits for thousands of years. Ranging in temperature from 80 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.

GABRIELLA MARKS

Yoga is popular in Santa Fe, and the city is home to many studios that serve practitioners of every variety and skill level. Classes center on Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Bikram methods, with emphasis placed on everything from flexibility and technique to breathing and creative movement. Most studios offer a "drop-in" option so you can easily fit a workout into your visit.

For those looking to slow down and make quiet contact with their spirit, the Buddhist Upaya Institute and Zen Center on Cerro Gordo Road 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.


Nature

Get Up and Go! Outdoor Adventures Abound in Santa Fe One of Santa Fe’s biggest draws is its spectacular scenery, and with that scenery comes unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation anytime 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, thanks to some 140 species that nest on the land. For more challenging routes into the Sangre de Cristos range, head to the Dale Ball trail system or to Atalaya Mountain, a seven-mile-round-trip trek that leads hikers from a sandy arroyo to a rocky ridgetop with expansive views. Mountain bikers are also welcome on most Dale Ball and Atalaya trails, as well as the Chamisa Trail and the Borrego Trail, both part of the Santa Fe National Forest. If Fido is joining you on this visit to pet-friendly Santa Fe, let him enjoy the Dale Ball trails too (on-leash), or visit the 22-acre Frank Ortiz Dog Park for some off-leash fun. Hyde Memorial State Park affords more day hiking opportunities with its extensive network of roadside trails, plus 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. You can take a guided tour or private ride on a horse from Santa Fe Stables or Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa. For those who prefer to hit the ground running (literally), try a competitive run like the Santa Fe to Buffalo Thunder Half Marathon or a low-key fun run. Water babies, take heart: New Mexico may be landlocked, but there’s still wet and wild fun to be had. Enjoy swimming, boating and river rafting at Abiquiú and Cochiti lakes. Nambé Lake is also a good spot for swimming, plus you can get an up-close look at the spectacular Nambé Waterfalls. At over 7,000 feet, Santa Fe’s mountain setting makes it an ideal destination for skiing. Ski Santa Fe, which has been drawing visitors to its slopes for more than six decades, has 7 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. Within the Santa Fe area, you can also head north to Taos Ski Valley with its 110 trails, and to Pajarito Mountain for snowblading, skiing and snowboarding. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular along the Nordic and Aspen Vista Trails below Ski Santa Fe and at Valles Caldera National Preserve. Enjoy ice skating in Los Alamos or the Genoveva Chavez Community Center in Santa Fe.

Community Convention Center "Truly in the heart of the city"

T

he Santa Fe Community Convention Center, opened in 2008, was designed to exceed the demands of modern meetings while honoring the creativity, cultural traditions and natural surroundings of Santa Fe. The result is more than a building where meetings are held. Crafted in the city’s appealing Southwestern style and built to the highest environmental standards, the center has gracefully merged into one of the most historic downtowns in the country while providing highly flexible and functional meeting space. Located just blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza within easy walking distance of hotels, restaurants, attractions, shopping and more than 1,500 sleeping rooms, the convention center is truly in the heart of the city. Functionally, the center is an adaptable, state-of-the-art facility for gathering and working. Features of the complex include outdoor meeting areas (9,500 sq. feet), convenient underground parking, an open interior courtyard, a second floor terrace, wireless connectivity, high-speed data lines and enough meeting space (28,900 sq. 50

santafe.org

feet indoors) to provide multiple events with their own exhibition areas, breakout rooms and meal function options. The center’s soft adobe appearance blends into the surrounding cityscape, giving little indication of the center’s LEED Gold Certification, water-wise construction and solar-powered infrastructure, all in keeping with Santa Fe’s commitment to environmental responsibility. The center has been embraced by the community as well and houses the Community Gallery, an art space featuring the work of local artists. From the open lobby atrium to the sunny breakout rooms and welcoming outdoor courtyard, the center’s warm environment, sensible layout and visual charm have been consistently praised by meeting planners and event delegates alike. The Santa Fe Community Convention Center has proved itself ideal for everything from intimate boardroom settings to entire facility buyouts hosting meetings, conventions, concerts and social events. Santa Fe Convention & Visitor Bureau’s highly trained and inspired sales staff and operations crew work with the city’s many meeting professionals to provide the support needed to make every event successful. For additional details, incentive programs and contact information, visit the convention center’s dedicated website at communityconventioncenter.com/index.html.
