Fall in Santa Fe: Golden Mountains and Bright Blue Skies
While nature is providing an incredible art display in the mountains, our city's vibrant creative community is putting on its own shows. There are museum events and gallery show openings galore. And if all this inspiration makes you hungry, remember that Santa Fe was recently named the best small city for food in the country in Rand McNally and USA Today’s Best of the Road. Hope we’ll see you soon!
Autumn is the perfect time to be in Northern New Mexico. Almost every day is crystal clear, the air is cooler, and on the nearby mountains aspen trees show off their fall colors. It's the ideal season to enjoy all Santa Fe is famous for, including world-renowned photo workshops.
