Culturephile Destination


In November 2015, USA Today’s 10-Best surveyed American cities with museums, operas, art galleries, orchestras, libraries and other amenities to determine the best destinations for those seeking a cultural enriching experience. With its yeasty mix of all of the above and an ambiance steeped in 400-plus years of history, Santa Fe took the top slot.

An intimate, highly walkable city, many first-time visitors are surprised by Santa Fe’s scale. For a relatively small city, Santa Fe packs a lot in. One of Santa Fe’s visitors favorite resources for exploring the City Different is The Original Santa Fe & Canyon Road Walking Map. This 40-year-old guide to the downtown, Canyon Road and the Railyard Arts District is available at most of Santa Fe’s hotels, inns and B&Bs as well as over 200 restaurants, art galleries and retailers.
