City Different

Santa Fe continuously ranks among the world's top holiday destinations, attracting visitors with its unusual combination of scenic beauty, rich history, cultural diversity, and high concentration of performing arts venues, fine restaurants, and interesting attractions.
Change things up with a short trip to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in Cochiti Pueblo (about 52 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Loretto Chapel, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, shop like a local with El Nicho, and wander the streets of Canyon Road.
