Best Things to Do in Santa Fe

Canyon Road, the epicenter of Santa Fe's artistic culture, is the first and last stop for most visitors. But while the commercial galleries and public museums found there often steal the thunder of the historic monuments, you must still check out Plaza sites like the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi and the Palace of the Governors. For a little living culture, support the local commerce at the Santa Fe Farmers Market. And if you arrive wanting fresh air, the nearby Sangre de Cristo Mountains are great for hiking, skiing, horseback riding and biking.
