Greater Santa Fe Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Santa Fe!
The area surrounding Santa Fe is rife with attractions that draw visitors from far and wide. Located north of Albuquerque and south of Taos, Santa Fe features a number of historical attractions that were instrumental in the settlement of the area. One historical attraction not to be missed is the Loretto Chapel and the Mysterious Staircase, a double helix set of 33 stairs that local legend says were built by Saint Joseph himself and have confounded engineers for decades. Artistic events are well represented in Santa Fe as well, giving the city a cultural atmosphere that welcomes internationally-known acts and performers. The region's restaurants are another popular attraction, with signature Tex-Mex meals available in abundance. Visitors to the city are reminded to get a map, a suggestion best summed up by cowboy entertainer Will Rogers: “Whoever designed the streets in Santa Fe must have been drunk and riding backwards on a mule.”
