Welcome to Santa Fe -
"Land of Enchantment"
Santa Fe is unlike any other
destination in the country, and in fact, is nicknamed "The City
Different." There is a colorful, international-style charm about
Santa Fe that has attracted people for almost 400 years. It is the
oldest capital city in the United States, founded in 1607, and is
unique in the blending of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo
cultures. The center of town is the Plaza, a tree-lined park
surrounded by businesses and historic churches, much like in
traditional European cities.
Santa Fe is a place of enchanting beauty, set at 7,000 feet in the
Rocky Mountain foothills. It has indescribable blue skies and boasts
over 300 days of sunshine each year. As you experience its pure
light, and feel its positive energy, you'll understand why this city
has attracted so many artists over the years and why it has become a
major international art center. You can expect temperatures to range
from 70-85 during the day down to 45-50 at night.
Despite its small population of 56,000, Santa Fe has incredible
cultural opportunities. At any time of year, visitors can enjoy
noted music, theater, or dance performances. Santa Fe is indeed a
city of museums including several that focus on art and others on
Native American history and culture. More than 200 art galleries
display a vast array of works.
Santa Fe is renowned world-wide as a shopper's paradise-with good
reason. Much of the merchandise is made in Santa Fe and the
Southwest, including art, specialty food products, clothing,
woven and leather goods, pottery and wood furniture.
While touring the Santa Fe area, be sure to visit some of the nearby
Indian Pueblos, among the oldest communities in America. Attend
ceremonial dances and experience first-hand a way of life
basically unchanged for hundreds of years.
