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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Fe side-trips: Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument (in Cochiti Pueblo) and Taos (Taos Pueblo & Rio Grande Gorge Bridge). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Loretto Chapel, appreciate the extensive heritage of Canyon Road, examine the collection at New Mexico History Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
