Santa Fe vacation rentals

Santa Fe’s got culture covered

Sitting at an elevation of almost 7,000 feet, sun-soaked Santa Fe has always identified itself as “The City Different.” This difference starts with the area’s rich history and heritage, which has contributed to the variety of architectural and culinary influences on display today, ranging from European to Native American. This cultural tapestry is a key reason why New Mexico’s capital boasts almost 300 galleries, making it one of the country’s most important artistic hubs. And with Santa Fe vacation rentals available throughout the city, it’s never been easier to enjoy a sophisticated getaway amid the scenic Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Touring Santa Fe

Santa Fe has surprises around every corner, and tours are the best way to discover them all. A scavenger hunt adventure is a great way to spend time with family and friends while exploring the best of the city. You’ll receive clues straight to your smartphone, leading you to bustling plazas, historic cathedrals, and into the very heart of Old Town. Air tours let you look down in awe at natural wonders like the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Rio Grande canyons, and the unspoiled Pueblo Ruins. Wine, beer, and ghost tours are also offered in Santa Fe, meaning that there’s something to suit all tastes.

The Santa Fe art scene

There are hundreds of galleries worth visiting in Santa Fe, but the New Mexico Museum of Art should be your first port of call. Open between May and October, with out-of-season hours available on its website, the gallery space showcases a constantly rotating schedule of exhibitions, which always keeps things fresh. You’ll admire watercolors, sculptures, and multimedia art, with audio guides giving you key background to the pieces. Docent-led tours are a fantastic option, while walking tours of Santa Fe’s architectural hot spots run between April and November, weather permitting.

Santa Fe’s sunny disposition

Santa Fe’s promise of 320 sunny days per year isn’t just idle chatter. The region’s dry steppe climate keeps temperatures high and rainfall at bay no matter the season, so Santa Fe vacation rentals are always in high demand. The summer months see temperatures reach their balmy peak, though the city’s lofty elevation adds a moderating breeze to keep things comfy. Average temperatures in January are 54°F and prices are generally a little lower, so it’s a top time to beat the crowds and enjoy a post-Christmas break in a cozy Santa Fe vacation rental.

The rock star of Santa Fe

The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument offers some of the most spectacular vistas in the US, and the 40-minute drive from your Santa Fe vacation rental will be rewarded with the sight of towering hoodoos and majestic rock formations that are found nowhere else in the world. A national recreational trail lets you explore the area on foot; you can use this opportunity to spot local flowers and wildlife, try a spot of bird-watching, or simply savor the views. The park is open all year round, except on national holidays.
