5 Reasons to Visit Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe is a city in New Mexico and is home to great shopping, rich history, and delicious food. The temperature remains pretty mild throughout the winter, but now is the best time to visit. There is no reason not to. The beautiful sights of Santa Fe will take your breath away. There is so much to experience and enjoy that the list could go on and on forever. However, here are just some of the best reasons you should visit Santa Fe as soon as possible.

  1. Adobe Style Architecture: Adobe is not, in fact, an architectural style but actually a material. Adobe is a clay-like material made up of earth, dust, and straw that when hardened turns to brick. This material is used in building most structures in Santa Fe.
  2. The sky: In Santa Fe, the sky is just as magnificent as what is below it. There is a mandate in the city that does not allow buildings to be higher than three stories. This keeps the integrity of the Spanish-Pueblo style buildings and also leaves the sky open and is quite a sight to see.
  3. The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum: Walk through the museum and witness over 1,000 pieces of Ms. O’Keefe’s stunning work. Her works show landscapes, flowers and other themes that fit perfectly in Santa Fe.
  4. La Boca: There is no shortage of amazing food in Santa Fe, but the Wine list at La Boca so perfectly accents the food they serve that it is an experience all on its own. If you are overwhelmed by the extensive wine list then ask the experienced waiters for help in choosing.
  5. Shopping at Double Take: If you enjoy shopping for vintage clothing then you will love Double Take. Even if you don’t plan on buying anything, walking through the wonderful collection of western gear and Loretta Lynn type shirts is quite fascinating. There is no shortage of wonders here.

If you are interested in the shopping or just experiencing the architecture then you should visit Santa Fe. The best way to really experience Santa Fe is to go local. Stay at  Four Kachinas Inn, a bed and breakfast in Santa Fe, right in the heart of everything. You don’t want to miss a beat when staying in this lovely city.
