Ah, Fanta Se. I grew up in Albuquerque, so this city was always the place we rolled our eyes and said, "What-ever" about. It's a little bit twee, but it does have the tremendous advantage of being *beautiful*, and the contemporary art scene that has developed in the last couple of decades adds a bit of an edge that this fantasy town sorely needed. Oh, and some great food--though if you want real down-and-dirty New Mexican, you really need to go to Albuquerque.

Though the main streets of town might be crowded cheek-to-jowl with tourists, Santa Fe somehow doesn't lose its cool or its charm. The timeless-looking adobe buildings that glow with pastel colors at sunset, the beadwork and handmade turquoise and silver jewelry for sale in the markets, and the gorgeous art and historical museums are all worth going back for time and again. Oh, wait. Did I also mention the amazing Southwestern, Mexican and New Mexican cooking going on everywhere around town? That, too. PS Old Route 66 passes through Santa Fe, too (or at least, one of the many historical alignments of the Mother Road does).

In this town that has drawn artists and healers to the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains for decades, you can head out on the artisanal chocolate trail, stopping at Kakawa Chocolate House for Mesoamerican chocolate elixirs and at ChocolateSmith, where dark chocolate is the specialty. You can get pampered at the Ten Thousands Waves Mountain Spa, inspired by traditional Japanese hot springs resorts; the communal soaking tub is women only and clothing optional. And cap off the day at Secreto with a garden-to-glass cocktail—pick a fruit, a vegetable, and a favorite liquor, and the bartender will craft you something divine.
Where to Stay: Santa Fe is full of atmospheric little hotels like the Inn on the Alameda, near the plaza and the galleries on Canyon Road. For something different, opt for a Central Asian–inspired yurt rental outside the city, available from Andaluz Rentals.

Northern New Mexico is very green not dry and deserty like the south. Santa Fe is 7000 feet above sea level and has to me, perfect climate. Adobe architecture, mountains, Native American jewelry, delicious Mexican inspired cuisine, music - I love it! Will go for the 3rd time this year

I had a blast in Santa Fe, hiking out in Pueblo ruins, eating great tex-mex food (including frito pie) and checking out little art galleries. If I ever moved back to the United States, this is one of the places I'd think of living.

Wonderful outdoor dining in this restaurant not visible from the street. Great bar and excellent food with an interesting menu. Don't miss trying the Buffalo and Antelope, a first for me and surprisingly tasty. Service is friendly and atmosphere is lovely with live music flowing out from the bar.
