Founded more than 400 years ago, there are so many reasons why Santa Fe is still known as “The City Different.” It’s a place unlike any other, with unique architecture, award-winning cuisine, world-class art, 325 days of sunshine, and a beautiful blend of cultures that come alive on every corner. All open and ready to safely welcome you back.
Take, for example, the Santa Fe Plaza. Built in 1610, it’s still the heart and soul of the city. Surrounded by historic adobe buildings that house shops, museums, hotels, and restaurants, it’s the hub of activity.
But that’s far from the only place you’ll find one-of-a-kind works of art. Santa Fe’s booming art scene is home to 250 fine art galleries, filled with pieces from world-class artists. Or, wander the dozens of art museums, spanning from traditional—like the New Mexico Museum of Art—to contemporary, like the interactive, all-ages Meow Wolf exhibit. Be sure to call or visit their individual websites for up-to-date hours and admission info.
The art doesn’t end there, because everything is a work of art in Santa Fe. With more than 400 restaurants, outdoor dining, and comfortable temperatures to enjoy menus that represent nearly every cuisine (including our world-famous red and green chile), the food will leave your stomach feeling full, and your soul hungry for more.
All this and more awaits you under the sunny blue skies and adobe-lined streets of Santa Fe—but there’s still so much more waiting to be discovered. So come explore the nation’s oldest capital, and uncover your different in The City Different.
