America’s oldest and highest capital city, Santa Fe has a population of 68,000. It is the fourth largest city in New Mexico and is like a small dog with a big attitude. At an elevation of 7,000 feet and at the tail bone of the Rocky Mountains, it feels like a world away but is only a one hour drive from the Albuquerque International Sunport. Distinctive mountains – like the Sangre de Cristos, Sandia and Jemez Mountains – and distant mesas complement the lush expanses of grasslands and rolling piñon-dotted terrain with colorful wildflower meadows and unique rock formations.
There are native cultures in New Mexico that have been continually inhabited for more than 2,000 years. It boasts a sunny dry climate, stunning landscapes, soulful architecture, big-city cultural diversity, world-class cuisine, and an art market second only to New York. With an average 283 sunny days per year, four distinct seasons and a year-round temperate climate, Santa Fe is a very environmentally enjoyable city.
Old World architecture and values blend with an attitude that embraces diversity and creativity to create a “City Different” where every day is a fresh experience, yet grounded in a sense of historic timelessness.
When it comes to quality of life, Santa Fe is a wonderful choice!
