…And so much more! Once you arrive in Santa Fe, the highest capital city in the United States, it’s obvious you’re not in Kansas anymore. Courtesy of its high altitude, the City Different enjoys 320 days of sunshine, all four seasons, brilliant blue skies and some of the purest air in the world.
Santa Fe sits 7,000 feet above sea level in the southernmost Rocky Mountains and has 12,000 foot mountain vistas. It’s tucked into a valley of the Rio Grande, surrounded by 1.6 million acres of unspoiled national forest filled with juniper, pine and aspen.
Spring, summer and fall, provide an endless amusement park for climbers, hikers and bicyclists. And the magnificent quality of the light has inspired artists for generations.
