Santa Fe (pop just over 85,000) is a special, unique, wonderful city unlike any other I have visited. Founded by the Spanish in the early 1600s, it is located in the Southern Rocky Mountains about 7,000 feet high. That makes it the highest and oldest capital in the U.S. It is the second oldest city in the country.
It is known for its Pueblo-style architecture and is home to countless art galleries and unique stores.
We visited the oldest home in the western United States.
Even the pizza places are unique.
Our hotel, Inn of the Five Graces, was absolutely fabulous. We were lucky to have an entire Villa. The décor was amazing, unique, and totally awesome and mirrored the entire hotel.
Santa Fe is known as a foodie haven. Even so, our upscale Latin dining experience at Sazon was so wonderful that for the first time ever we went back the next night also. It was great again.
