Visit Santa Fe, NM
Are you a luxury traveler looking for a new adventure? If you’re growing tired of the usual spots and want to experience something a little different, consider chartering a private flight to Santa Fe, the oldest capital city in the United States.
The city consistently ranks as a top travel destination thanks to a unique blend of beautiful landscapes, rich history, cultural diversity, and incredible art, music and culinary scenes. Santa Fe, which translates to “holy faith” in Spanish, is part of the larger Albuquerque–Santa Fe–Las Vegas combined statistical area — learn more about private aviation in the surrounding areas of Albuquerque and Las Vegas.
A lot of travelers head here just for its opera; although the actors take center stage, the theater often steals the show with incredible 360-degree views of the surrounding sandstone covered wilderness, complete with dramatic views of colorful southwest sunsets.
The cultural confluence found here also attracts visitors year after year, where you can travel back in time and explore villages built by indigenous tribes more than 1,000 years ago. Home to famous artists such as Georgia O’Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz, there’s an extraordinary amount of art to be found, and with a diverse culinary scene, visitors can get an authentic taste of the Southwest.
History & Culture
After being occupied for several thousand years by indigenous peoples, the city of Santa Fe was founded by Spanish colonists in 1610, making it the oldest city in New Mexico and the oldest state capital in the United States.
The city’s full name “La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asís”, or The Royal City of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi, has remained the same since its founding
Santa Fe was once the capital of Spain and Mexico’s Rio Grande territories, and the city became the capital of New Mexico after achieving statehood in 1912.
Arts & Music
Unless you’re an avid artist or collector, chances are you were unaware that Santa Fe is home to the 3rd largest art market in the United States, following only New York City and Los Angeles — an incredible feat when compare the city’s population of around 70,000 to that of mega-metropolises like NYC and LA.
It all started when a number of artists flocked here during the early 20th century, including Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz.
O’Keefe was renowned for incredible paintings of Southwest landscapes, many of which she painted from her home in Santa Fe.
Although her most famous canvases are prominently on display in some of the world’s largest museums, a variety of her works are on display at Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, the site of her 20th-century home called “Ghost Ranch”, which is also the world’s largest gallery of her paintings.
Igor Stravinsky, a Russian-born composer, pianist, and conductor, is widely considered one of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century.
He’s also responsible for the Santa Fe Opera House, one of the world’s leading opera companies. Home to one of the most unique settings in stage and theater, the Opera House consistently ranks as one of the most unique venues in the world, and has led to a flourishing local music scene.
The city and its surrounding region are also a popular place for spiritual journeys and to practice meditative arts, whether you choose to do so at one of several spas and resorts in the area, or in the solitude of the surrounding Southwest landscapes.
Things to do
Most visitors head to the historic downtown, especially the Plaza, a one-block square adjacent to the Palace of the Governors, home to the original seat of New Mexico’s government since the Spanish colonial era.
Other popular attractions include Museum Hill, where you’ll find most of the city’s best art museums, as well as the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, which takes place annually during the second full weekend of July. The Canyon Road arts area with its galleries is also a major attraction for locals and visitors alike.
Many travelers find it particularly attractive during the second week of September, when the Sangre de Cristo Mountains turn yellow and the skies are clear and blue.
This is also around the time when the annual Fiestas de Santa Fe takes place, celebrating the “reconquering” of the city by Don Diego de Vargas, which is highlighted by the burning Zozobra, a 50-foot marionette.
Popular day-trips can include the town of Taos, located about 70 miles north. You can also visit the historic Bandelier National Monument and the Valles Caldera about 30 miles away. When there’s enough snowfall, Ski Santa Fe, the region’s aptly named ski area, is available, and it’s only about 16 miles north; Chimayo can also be found nearby, where many people complete the annual pilgrimage to the Santuario de Chimayo.

Thanks to an attractive year-round climate, plenty of outdoor activities, and cultural offerings both in and around the region, tourism is a major component to Santa Fe’s economy. It’s also served as an important transportation hub dating back to the Santa Fe Railway in the late 1800’s.
Outside of service industries, the city has been associated with science and technology dating back to 1943, when Santa Fe served as the gateway to Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), located about 45-minutes from the city.
Other facilities include the Santa Fe Institute (SFI), which researches complex systems in physical, biological, economic, and political sciences. SFI has hosted Nobel laureates including Murray Gell-Mann (physics), Philip Warren Anderson (physics), and Kenneth Arrow (economics).
The National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) focuses on research at the intersection of bioscience, computing, and mathematics, and throughout the 1990s and 2000s, many technology companies opened to commercialize technologies developed by LANL, SFI, and NCGR.
Due to the strong presence of these scientific institutions and an attractive for visitors tourist industry, the city regularly hosts scientific meetings, summer schools, and public lectures, such as the International q-bio Conference on Cellular Information Processing, Santa Fe Institute’s Complex Systems Summer School, LANL’s Center For Nonlinear Studies Annual Conference, and many, many others.
As the capital and fourth-largest city in the state of New Mexico, Santa Fe often caters to both business and governmental travelers, but it’s scenic beauty, cultural diversity, arts, music and cuisine make it one of the most unique travel destinations in North America.
Private jet travelers will find that a majority of the hotels and B&Bs in Santa Fe are located in one of two areas: downtown near the Palace of the Governors and Plaza, or on Cerrillos Road, the main commercial street.
Although these two sections aren’t far from each other physically, the atmosphere can vary greatly between the two: Downtown has the charm & ambiance of an old Western village frozen in time, while Cerrillos Road feels more like a touristy shopping district in a major city.
Luxury travelers can choose the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, the only five-star resort within 100 miles of Santa Fe, featuring 57 acres of unspoiled beauty tucked along the Sangre de Cristo foothills. The resort is perfect for southwest weddings and other events, offering 65 rooms casita guest rooms and suites, complete with their own fireplaces and private terraces.
While searching other accommodations in the area, you’ll find a surprising amount of highly-rated three-star hotel and B&B Inn’s, but don’t let the number of stars attached deter you–some of these inns and spas offer exclusive, luxurious accommodations for travelers looking for a more quiet, intimate atmosphere; many of these resorts are perfect for romantic getaways or luxury weekend trips.
