Santa Fe Travel Guide

Why? The bright and beautiful capital of New Mexico at the foot of the Rocky Mountains is classily arty, fascinatingly ancient, sky-high and sunny, and most of all a holiday in Santa Fe is a great way to 'go native'. Travel to Santa Fe to explore the remains of its 2,000 year-old Pueblo civilisation along the Rio Grande, and a colonial history dating back 400 years in the central plaza and winding alleys of the city itself.
When? With almost year-round sunshine and a climate that never gets too hot or too cold (despite a good few inches of snow in winter), Santa Fe is a city for all seasons. Peak season for a holiday in Santa Fe though is during July and August, when the event calendar is packed with opera, music festivals and the streets teem with markets. Another popular time to travel to Santa Fe is at Christmas, when a number of Native American ceremonies take place and a variety of Spanish festivities light up the town.
Who for? Art lovers, in particular, enjoy a holiday in Santa Fe with its feast of 200 or more top galleries. The city also satisfies the cravings of shopaholics with its stores and stands peddling a bewildering array of crafts, collectibles, antiques, gifts and clothing.
