1. Enjoy an Annual Event

Santa Fe’s beautiful weather ensures a plethora of events all year long. From the Santa Fe Film Festival in February to the exciting New Year’s Eve celebration at the Santa Fe Plaza, there’s almost always an annual event going on to make your trip to Santa Fe extra special.

2. Go Sightseeing

Don’t forget your camera, because there are a lot of beautiful sights to photograph. From charming gardens to the cultural richness of the Plaza to stunning desert sunsets, Santa Fe is a photographer’s dream!

3. Check Out Our Fantastic Art Schools, Tours, and Markets

We have a vibrant art scene! Join a tour and then paint what you saw, arrange a painting class party, or join in the fun at Santa Fe’s unique combination art show/Farmer’s Market.

4. Enjoy the Many Flavors of Santa Fe With a Cooking Class 

‘Sabor’ is Spanish for flavor and that’s something Santa Fe has in abundance! While you’re here, why not treat yourself to a cooking class? You might learn how to use Santa Fe’s famous chile peppers, go on a walking tour of some of our best restaurants, or learn about New Mexico’s rich culinary history.

5. Visit Our World-Class Museums

Our city is renowned for its history and cultural significance. Visit one of our many Santa Fe museums to experience it for yourself.

6. Enjoy High Desert Golfing

Panoramic views of the mountains plus 300 days a year of sunshine plus four golf courses. Need we say more? 

7. Take a Hike! 

No, seriously, go hiking to experience first hand the abundant natural beauty that surrounds Santa Fe. Take off on your own or enjoy a guided hike with a local expert. 

8. Do Your Hiking from Horseback

Book a scenic trail ride or even a historic stagecoach ride during your stay. There’s no better way to feel like a part of New Mexico’s storied history than by exploring on horseback!

9. Go Fly Fishing 

Shh… Can you keep a secret? Northern New Mexico is a premiere, yet little known, fly fishing destination. With four species of trout, five rivers, and a low population density, our area is an angler’s dream! 

10. Enjoy Santa Fe’s Vibrant Nightlife
