Santa Fe is America’s oldest capital city, resting at 7,000 feet in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Distinctive mountains – like the Sangre de Cristos, Sandia and Jemez Mountains – and distant mesas complement the lush expanses of grasslands and rolling piñon-dotted terrain with colorful wildflower meadows and unique rock formations.
Santa Fe is known all over the world for its contemporary and cosmopolitan ambiance. Old World architecture and values blend with an attitude that embraces diversity and creativity to create a “City Different” where every day is a fresh experience, yet grounded in a sense of historic timelessness.
With an average 283 sunny days per year, four distinct seasons and a year-round temperate climate, Santa Fe is a very environmentally enjoyable city.
