Santa Fe in the Fall


The City Different.

One of the best times to visit Santa Fe is in the month of November. Come fall, the weather is much cooler, less crowded and ski season kicks off. Known as the oldest capital city in the United States, Santa Fe, New Mexico offers rich history, museums, history lessons of Spanish conquistadors, missions, Native American traditions and more.

With large open spaces, Santa Fe calls to nature lovers with Santa Fe National Forest and Valles Caldera National Preserve. In the Jemez Mountains northwest of the city, is a home to elk, coyotes, rabbits and bald eagles. If there is snow, you can tour on snowshoes or cross-country ski, or enjoy the stillness of nature.

Starting Thanksgiving weekend, join Ski Santa Fe and enjoy a range of ski terrain from beginner slopes to great tree runs. Outdoor activities are also shared with indoor activities such are the art museums that offer folk, modern, Georgia O’Keefe, and Native American art. Many of the art museums are in the heart of Santa Fe alongside various restaurants with Southwestern cuisine.

Home to the original Frito-Pie, slathered with red chile, pinto beans and cheese, restaurants offer traditional New Mexican style dishes and original creations, among the popular restaurants are The Shed and La Choza, where everything including the desserts are spicy! Top off your visit with a 15-minute drive to the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado set in a quiet and serene setting. Free desert hikes every morning with an adventure center in the heart of the resort for hiking and mountain biking, or enjoy a relaxing evening from the comfort of your room and a wood-burning fireplace and terrace with spectacular views.

Luxury, adventure, history and the arts are among the many things to do in Santa Fe making it a perfect ESCAPADITA.
