There’s something magical about Santa Fe. Founded 400 years ago as the provincial capital of New Spain, the city has 300 days of sunshine a year, a thriving creative community, vibrant Hispanic culture and longstanding Native American traditions.

Where to Stay
Just outside of town, the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe has a spectacular high desert setting with sweeping views of the Sangre de Cristo foothills across the Rio Grande Valley. The 65 casita-style accommodations, each with a freplace and private patio or terrace, are the perfect spot for sunsets or stargazing. Explore the 57-acre property’s private hiking trails or enjoy altitude-adjusting treatments in the 10,000 square-foot spa, and at night sit down to a lively Chef’s Table dinner held in the buzzing kitchen. The resort also offers gourmet “tailgating” at the open-air Santa Fe Opera, and the on-site Adventure Partners curates tours of Pueblo cliff dwellings and petroglyphs. Room rates start at $379 a night.
