Santa Fe is a magical place. Basked in a rich blend of Native American, Latino and Western cultures, it’s a city that has fascinated me since my first visit.
It’s not just the abundance of arts, creativity, and intricate mixture of Southwestern (Mexican and Southern) cuisine that I love, but the endless possibilities of things to do that cater to every season of the year.
I have been in Santa Fe during in the dog days of summer and cycled around the beautiful Old Town and Canyon Road taking refuge from the scorching sun in the picturesque parks and gardens. Spring and fall are especially nice, as the days are perfectly sunny and warm for strolling around this beautiful town and exploring different markets and galleries, while the afternoon sun gives away to cooler evenings and mornings.
However, I have to say, my favorite time of the year to visit Santa Fe is winter, when the colors of this gorgeous city, the brilliant shades of turquoise skies, the vibrant reds of the adobe buildings, and magnificent display of visual art and statues are accented and become even more exuberant by the clear crisp winter air and snow.
