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.

SETTING/CLIMATE 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.

ART/CULTURE 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.

SHOPPING 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, jewelry, woven and leather goods, pottery and wood furniture.

INDIAN PUEBLOS 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.
