Santa Fe Holidays Overview


Santa Fe is has long been known as one of the most beautiful cities in the US and is considered to be a favourite destination among high end travellers. The city is surrounded by the unspoiled natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains and is known to have an exotic appeal to it. It offers its visitors with lip smacking cuisines and is known to offer them with a beautiful aura of rustic sophistication that allows them to relax and rejuvenate themselves.

The city still holds true to its Spanish colonial charm and is famous as a historic destination that has been seducing its visitors for hundreds of years. The locals might constantly moan about what the city has lost due to its commercialization and due to the huge influx of tourists year after year, but the first time visitors can expect to get entertained, enthralled and captivated by this sprawling metropolis.

Santa Fe is also known to be all about its history, culture and arts. It is home to a number of photographers, painters and sculptors and is also known to house dozens of museums and hundreds of galleries. The ancient Indian Market is one of the most celebrated attractions of Santa Fe and is without a doubt the best place to check out authentic Indian arts and artefacts.

Those looking for something different can also revel in the fact that apart from its century old abodes and commercialized venues, Santa Fe also offers its visitors with exotic wildlife, a ski resort, beautiful opera shows, high end resorts and luxury spas – each offering a level of sophistication that belies the size and rural location of the city.

Santa Fe holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Palace of Governors

www.palaceofthegovernors.org
What is it? To begin sightseeing in Santa Fe, start where it all began on the city's historic central Plaza, which is dominated by the adobe structure known as the Palace of the Governors, the oldest public building in the United States. The palace was built in 1610 as Spain's seat of government for what is today the American Southwest. It still bears the scars of having survived Indian revolts and occupation, and Mexican Independence; it was later occupied by Confederate forces when they attempted to take New Mexico. Fittingly, in 1909, the building was converted into the Museum of New Mexico and is now the principal of Santa Fe's four museums, preserving 400 years of the state's history from the 16th century Spanish explorations through the frontier era to modern times. Exhibits range from a stagecoach and kitchen utensils to paintings on bison hide and a state seal made from spoons, quills and tacks. Hours of Operation: Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm Phone:(505) 476 5100
