In Santa Fe, it’s all about the art. A sizable number of painters, sculptors and photographers live in the area, hundreds of galleries have set up shop here, and more than a dozen museums thrive. The renowned Indian Market has been celebrated for more than 80 years. Without a doubt, the creative and cultural community holds court in New Mexico’s small capital city.
Against the dramatic backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo range, Santa Fe oozes sophistication, its cosmopolitan stature belying its size. It boasts gourmet restaurants, spas, an opera company and even a ski resort. Centuries-old adobes stand proud, and live-work spaces sprout in the newly redeveloped Railyard district.
