Santa Fe

Santa Fe is the capital of New Mexico and is a city unlike any other, truly living up to its tagline, The City Different, at every turn. With legendary history and culture around every corner, an art scene that spans from traditional to contemporary, accommodations with a local feel yet world-class status, award-winning cuisine that’s as eclectic as it is sumptuous, and countless experiences to encounter, you’re sure to uncover something different about yourself when you visit.

Quick Tips For Visiting Santa Fe

  • Take it easy. Santa Fe's high altitude (7,000 feet above sea level) means air is rarefied, thinner. It usually takes about 48 hours to adjust and staying hydrated helps.
  • Watch your alcohol intake. One drink is the equivalent of three at sea level.
  • Use sunscreen and wear a hat. There are no beaches, but Santa Fe is closer to the sun, and the sun shines 300 days of the year.
  • Santa Fe's climate is dry, with sometimes less than 20 percent humidity. Nights and early mornings are cool, even in June.

The climate in Santa Fe can change rapidly and often. In the summer, days can be hot (90+) and nights quite cool (low 60's). Be sure to check current conditions before traveling as monsoon rains can quickly cool down a hot day and bring unexpected floods and rapid humidity. In June, the average high temperature is 83 and the average low temperature is 51, both in degrees Fahrenheit.
