Everyone is falling for Santa Fe

While the Northeast may come to mind first for a prime leaf-peeping trip, the Southwest offers just as gorgeous, colorful foliage as the trees change.

Autumn in Santa Fe is a spirited season with golden aspens, crisp days, the smell of roasting green chiles and the burn of pinon in the kiva fireplaces. Mid-September through mid-October is considered by many to be the best time to visit The City Different.

You can take in the natural beauty on dozens of trails both through forests and also more urban locations. You’ll be left speechless by the glimmering leaves and looming views of the Sangre de Cristo Range, making Santa Fe particularly picturesque.

With it’s Old World charm, Santa Fe is nothing short of magical during the Autumn season. Here is a list of our staff’s favorite fall events / things to do:
