People often associate Georgia O'Keeffe with Santa Fe. In fact, the iconic artist didn't live in the city until her last years. She lived in Abiquiu, about an hour northwest of Santa Fe. Her original home was at Ghost Ranch, a former dude ranch turned conference center. In 1946 she bought a second home in the village. She wanted to grow vegetables but the soil at Ghost Ranch was too arid. Her village home (The Georgia O'Keeffe Home and Studio), open from March to November, can only be visited on a guided tour. These fill up so book well in advance. On the hour-long tour, docents guide you through O'Keeffe's garden and into the courtyard where you'll see the black door she often painted. Parts of the house are in fragile condition and can only be viewed through windows. You will go into the kitchen, pantry and separate studio building.

- Sightseeing: "If you want to go behind the black door, inside more rooms than on the standard tour and visit the fallout shelter O'Keeffe had built into the hillside in the 1950s, take the Behind the Scenes Tour offered on Wednesday and Friday evenings from June to September."
- Best for Sightseeing Because: A must-visit for Georgia O'Keeffe fans. Seeing how and where she lived and learning a bit about her life give insight into her art.
