People are drawn to Santa Fe’s enchanting mystique. The rich history, cultural heritage and art create a unique magic. There’s no other place like it. The city streets with their 400- year-old buildings transport visitors to another era. Explore a host of small museums and over 200 art galleries; The City Different is the third largest art market in the US. People have lived in this area for over a thousand years. Go back in time at one of the ancient cliff dwellings or attend the authentic Pueblo dances held throughout the year. Experience Spanish Colonial culture at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history village, or visit Chimayó, a mountain hamlet known for weaving, chile and miracles, with its mix of Colonial and contemporary. Discover the great outdoors: hike, raft, ski, snowshoe, camp or even go up, up and away in a colorful balloon. Summer is a great time for music buffs bringing the Santa Fe Opera, the New Mexico Jazz Festival and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. The free Santa Fe Bandstand concerts rock the historic Santa Fe Plaza all summer or check out the free outdoor jazz while picnicking at Music on the Hill.
