Santa Fe is a city of superlatives: the oldest and highest state capital in the United States and one of the country’s best-loved vacation destinations.
Given its dramatic locale, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to learn that Santa Fe is jam packed with opportunities for outdoor adventure. Step out of your Santa Fe hotel and head to Old Fort Park or Prince Park Commemorative Walkway for a great hike, or the Santa Fe River Park for a spin on the popular bike trails. Hyde Memorial Park will make for a beautiful hike or drive, or, if you’re seeking more of a challenge, try climbing Atalaya Mountain to the east of the city.
Santa Fe has been officially recognized as a UNESCO Creative City thanks to its longstanding relationship with the arts. Over the years, Santa Fe has played host to a number of world-famous artists and writers, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Cormac McCarthy and D.H.Lawrence. The city’s diverse contributions to culture are celebrated throughout the city in an array of mesmerizing galleries and creative museums. The Museum of International Folk Art is among the best in the world, as is the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.
When the sky darkens, find world class entertainment in Santa Fe’s many theaters, auditoriums and cinemas. Try the Santa Fe Opera House, a number of independent art house theaters, and the Lensic Performing Arts Center for performances to suit every age.
