Special features:
Santa Fe is located 55 miles north of Albuquerque and Kirtland Air Force Base. Situated in the foothills of the southern Rocky Mountains, it is known as "the City Different" with its Indian-Spanish architecture, narrow winding streets, world renowned galleries and museums, opera house, boutiques, restaurants, and cultural activities. To the north of Santa Fe are the Pueblos of San Juan, San Ildefonso, Nambe, Pojoaque, Tesuque, and Santa Clara. Located to the south of the city are the Pueblos of Cochiti, Santo Domingo, and San Felipe. The landscape encircling these communities is spectacularly beautiful, offering breath-taking views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains. Santa Fe is known for its ideal climate and sunny days, which average 300 per year. Ski Santa Fe opens from Thanksgiving through Easter and there is hiking and biking year round, nearby fly fishing and natural hot springs, as well as various other outdoor activities in the area.
