Santa Fe

4.1

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. Founded in 1607, the city was named after Saint Francis of Assisi. Situated at an elevation of 2,100 m (7,000 ft) above sea level, Santa Fe is not only the country's oldest but also its highest state capital. A city of contrasts, Santa Fe is home to both residents who claim ancestry back to the 17th century and wealthy newcomers from around the globe. Plan the details of your Santa Fe holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States trip itinerary maker tool.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
